Earl the Quail has been helping us to celebrate #GSPCAPurpleWeek

The #GSPCAPurpleWeek is all about celebrating 149 years of the GSPCA.

Our mission back then remains as strong today in being –

  • To prevent cruelty to all animals
  • To rescue animals in distress
  • To provide shelter for strays
  • To foster and encourage kindness and consideration in the treatment of all animals and birds

The fourth point and embedded in all we do in caring and education and a key part of this is the next generation.

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.

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.
