The GSPCA is currently planning to approach various Pet Shops throughout the Island to see if working together could better the welfare of the animals sold in Pet Shops and help with general concerns from the public.  The welfare of animals within Pet Shops has always been a concern at the GSPCA and so the opportunity to work along side a responsible Pet Shops is a fantastic opportunity.

The GSPCA is asking for your help for this very friendly poorly cat.

Roger came into the Shelter as a very elderly sick stray earlier this month.  When he arrived he had multiple health problems and needed to be rushed to the vets where he was placed on a drip and under intensive care for some time.
