On Saturday the 18th July the first ever animal came to stay in the new multi purpose animal welfare building.

We officially received the keys the day before and since then a number of cats have come to stay.

The first was 'Estra' who was adopted from the GSPCA last year.  Estra had been living in a greenhouse before being brought into the Shelter as a stray.
