Do remember Rose the hedgehog?

Rose is one of many hedgehogs that we have had in recently to be injured by gardening equipment.

After a long process of rehabilitation and care since arriving in April Rose is now back to health and fit enough to be released.

Sadly due to her injuries to her head many of her spines haven't grown back, so a lovely home with an enclosed garden was found and Rose left the Shelter last Friday.

When Rose went to her new home we equipped Mr & Mrs Herring with a wildlife camera to see how she got on in her new home.


Friday June 27th is Bring Your Dog to Work Day

Next Friday June 27th is Bring Your Dog to Work Day.

Having a dog in the room can make human colleagues more cooperative, reduce stress, increase job satisfaction and productivity.

When adopting a dog or any animal from the GSPCA we often ask how many hours potential owners may be at work.  Perhaps the question should actually be - are you able to take your dog to work?

Discussing the benefits of taking a dog to work might just result in a match with a dog we have in for homing.

Last week the GSPCA were approached to ask the question if we had a life saving dog.

Sadly a dog had been rushed to Isabelle Vets with health problems which meant the dog required a blood transfusion.

The GSPCA has over 200 animals at the Shelter from dogs to birds, cats to a horse and we the GSPCA team took a dog Tally up to the vets to see if he would be suitable.

Tally is an energetic lively dog lwho has come in to the Animal Shelter to find a new home.  He is a 6 year old flat coated retriever and loves people.

The Shelter is manned 24 hours and on arrival Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager was there to accept the bird that was very close to death.

An intensive care unit was set up ready and Steve did what he could to try and get some of the fluid out of the bird.
