A way to make more of your 2012 donations - Did you know about Tax Relief for Guernsey Registered Charities?

Submitted by GSPCA on 10:06, 17th Jan, 2013 | 0

In September 2009 the States of Guernsey agreed to change the way in which tax relief is given in respect of donations to Guernsey Registered Charities (GRC).

Previously income tax relief was only available to individuals who made payments under an irrevocable Deed of Covenant in favour of a Guernsey Registered Charity for a period in excess of 3 years; no relief was available to Guernsey resident individuals in respect of noncovenanted donations to Guernsey charities.

In summary, the new system works as follows:

Do you have historic pictures or videos of the GSPCA work to help us look back at 140 years history

Submitted by GSPCA on 16:07, 4th Jan, 2013 | 0

Next month the GSPCA will be celebrating 140 years caring for animals in Guernsey and we are appealing for pictures or video clips of the work during our 84 years at our current address or even the early 1900's or late 1800's that anyone that may have.

We have a very good record of our history back until the late 1920's but very few pictures.

Our records include annual reports back to 1929 and even a visitor book from the 1970's with some lovely signatories.


Please help Felix a very special cat needing a farm or stable home

Submitted by GSPCA on 17:11, 3rd Jan, 2013 | 0

Felix has now been at the GSPCA Animal Shelter since October 2011 and we want to start the New Year finding her that forever home.

She came in as a feral and unfortunately is still very nervous so would best suit a farm or stable yard home.  At only 3 years of age she does get on well with other cats and we are asking for your help.

Even if you can't offer her a home if you could download a poster and display it or even spread the word of her needing a home from talking to friends to sharing on social networks such as facebook and twitter we would really appreciate it.
