Last Friday a team of staff from IQ EQ spent a day volunteering at the GSPCA.

7 IQ EQ 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 painting many areas including the GSPCA Reception and Hospital Building.

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.

Submitted by Steve on 10:56, 1st Mar, 2022 | 0

Today is not only St Davids Day, it is also Shrove Tuesday also known to many as Pancake Day and many of us will shopping for our ingredients.  The GSPCA would like to remind everyone to think of the produce that you are going to use and please look to buy Animal Welfare friendly products such as free range eggs.

Although the EU legislation has forced many battery farms to improve their standards, chickens that live as free range birds have a much better quality of life.
