Last Wednesday a team of staff from Northern Trust spent a day volunteering at the GSPCA.

3 Northern Trust staff arrived at 9am to be greeted by Tim Pellett the GSPCA Training and Community Officer.

They started with a lovely picture at the front of the Animal Shelter before they began a day of helping around site and specifically helping care for the grounds and Memorial Garden.

Through the day they learnt about much of our work and met many of the team and finished with a tour of the site to see the many animals and much of our work.

Ruby a lovely black and white cat arrived at the GSPCA earlier this year.

She had a number of health issues on arrival and sadly as a stray no owner was found.

Many of the health issues are much better but her ears have caused her constant problems and it  now transpires that due to a growth she will need an operation to remove the lump and an ear canal.

Not many Puffins left to sponsor in the 2022 Puffin Parade in aid of Autism Guernsey and the GSPCA so get involved now

Submitted by Steve on 15:08, 6th May, 2022 | 0

In 2021 Autism Guernsey and the Guernsey Adult Literacy Project organised the Goat Trail which was extremely successful and raised over £80,000 for the charities.

Autism Guernsey and the GSPCA are now organising a further parade for 2023 – the Puffin Parade.

When deciding on what kind of statue to use for this event, it was agreed that we would keep to the theme of animals and birds synonymous with the Bailiwick.  Therefore it was agreed that we would use Puffins, although larger than their normal size.
