Submitted by Steve on 16:21, 16th Aug, 2021 | 0

Many may know Pongo the diabetic cat who arrived at the GSPCA during the first lock down.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Pongo has been at the GSPCA for over a year and might know him as he has been into the studios at BBC Guernsey and also featured in a calendar this year which is on sale across the UK from the ADCH.”

“All of the team think the world of Pongo and although there has been some interest due to the costs of food and treatment many were a little put off giving him a good home.”

With the current challenges we all need cheering up and what better way than sharing an update on an animal happily adopted from the GSPCA.

Hamish was adopted during lock down and here is an update from his owner -

“Just a few photos to show how Hamish has settled in, he has claimed our bedroom window sill as his early morning lookout post, and has a teddy to cuddle into in his bed next to the radiator in our bedroom.

He sits on the sofa between us in the evening watching tv or just under the sofa. He had a play last night with catnip, and seems very happy.

Last year the GSPCA helped a poorly, nervous stray cat that was covered in scabs.

As no owner could be found Durand as he was named was cared for and treated by the team at the GSPCA.

Durand was quite nervous when he first arrived but with a lot of TLC and vet treatment he improved daily.

Last month Durand finally found his forever home and we have recently had a message from new owners Lewis and Laura to hear how well he is doing.

With over 1000 cats helped at the GSPCA every year we strive to do everything we can for the many strays, cruelly treated and unwanted cats.

At the end of August a 6 year old female cat found her way to the GSPCA when her owner could no longer care for her.

Although in fairly good health on the day she arrived during her assessment we discovered she had cat flu and also had sores on her feet.

After two months of treatments and veterinary care 'Lucky' as she is called improved and got better.


Cats have a 1 in 33 chance on Guernsey roads - could you help us with our online survey?

Submitted by Steve on 12:44, 10th Nov, 2015 | 0

Every year the GSPCA are called out to and help between 200 and 300 cats that are injured or killed on the road every year.

During the darker winter months the numbers are at their highest and in just one evening recently 4 cats were brought in to the Shelter between the hours of 10pm and 4am that were killed on our roads.

Over many years the worries for cats on busy roads has always been a real concern.  However the GSPCA as have many other rescues noticed that the smaller roads and lanes are often a greater risk and cause of cats being hit by moving vehicles.
