Despite the restrictions in the last 2 years we saw over 100 stalls at our biggest event of the year and 2022 is looking to once again be a bumper year.

Every year we hear of firework related incidents involving animals and children. While fireworks may be exciting and pretty to look at and its fun to celebrate many celebrations with a bang, we must put our safety, the safety of our pets and the local wildlife first. 

Tonight as part of the North Show at approximately 2150hrs (950pm) at Saumarez Park in Castel there is a firework display planned so please ensure your animals are safe and prepare for the unusual sounds and sights they might be subjected too.

GSPCA concerned for the welfare of wildlife in the hot weather and pond advice

Submitted by Steve on 10:55, 12th Aug, 2022 | 0

The GSPCA has been highlighting the challenges of the current hot weather on our wildlife and every day rescuing animals suffering from the lack of food and water, as well as those sick and injured.

The GSPCA is also aware that many of our ponds around the island which are homes to an array of wildlife are suffering due to the lack of rain.

One of the main public ponds is that of the one in Saumarez Park which is at a very low level and has become extremely green due to algae and there has been sadly a number of dead wildlife been found in and around the pond.


WARNING HOT WEATHER - Animals in hot cars, why you shouldn’t walk your dog on a hot day & help the wildlife

Submitted by Steve on 11:33, 11th Aug, 2022 | 0

With hot weather the GSPCA has been extremely busy with calls and reports from the public from dogs locked in cars, dogs being walked on hot pavements, animals in direct sunlight, wildlife in need and we want to remind all pet owners of the real dangers to their pets and how you can help wildlife.

With the extreme warm weather and direct sunlight, dogs and other animals whether in cars or their pens are potentially in a situation where you could kill your pet if it is left, regardless of the situation.


Charlie the Senegal Parrot reunited after being missing for 7 years

Submitted by Steve on 11:14, 11th Aug, 2022 | 0

Over 6 weeks ago a Senegal Parrot was found in Vazon.

The very friendly adult Senegal Parrot arrived on the 25th June after being rescued by a member of the public and the GSPCA team were really shocked that an owner hadn’t come forward so we did a big appeal last week.

What happened next was a real surprise as an owner did come forward but she had reported her Charlie the Senegal Parrot missing in October 2015.
