WEATHER WARNING in #GSPCAPurpleWeek- With extreme weather please help care for animals of Guernsey

Submitted by Steve on 23:59, 15th Feb, 2022 | 0

Once again the Bailiwick has high winds and weather that puts our animals and wildlife at risk.

Often during the winter months with the high winds and stormy weather makes it difficult for wild animals and birds to feed and rest.

With the high winds we have to ensure our pets and animals kept outside are safe and secure.

Once again GSPCA are asking those that live around and visit our coast to please watch out for injured animals in need as well as seal pups which can get separated from their mothers at this time of year especially when we see bad weather.

Stow away gecko furthest travelled hitch hiker arrives in #GSPCAPurpleWeek

Submitted by Steve on 23:43, 15th Feb, 2022 | 0

On Sunday morning the GSPCA received a very unusual little arrival.

For 149 years we have been helping animals and some from far further than our shores.

In 2020 just before the first lock down an Indian gecko arrived having stowed away in a bag from India who was named Mr Patel and went into a new home after following quarantine procedures.

On Sunday we had an arrival that travelled even further. A family on their return to Guernsey while unpacking discovered a tiny little Pacific gecko who had journeyed well over 8000km.

On 11th February, 1873, a meeting was convened in the rooms of the Societe Guernesiaise “for the purpose of considering the expediency of establishing in the Island a Societe for the suppression of Cruelty to Animals” and the Dean of Guernsey was called to the Chair. The Patron of the Society was His Excellency Lt. General Froome.

A Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was thus established on the 14th February 1873 and became known as the GSPCA.

DORA'S STORY - Dora the explorer home safe and sound

Submitted by Steve on 18:01, 25th Jan, 2022 | 0

On Thursday 13th January 2022 Dora a medium sized cross breed dog managed to escape and decided to go for bit of a walk about.

Dora was originally lost near Amherst School.

From there she went on bit of an adventure and evaded being caught for nearly two weeks.

The GSPCA had many reports in many Parishes and we know she seemed to enjoy her time in St Andrews and Castel where we believe she was for much of the time she was missing.

We were pretty confident she was between Talbot Valley and Beaucamps for much of the last few days she was stray.
