Over the last two Sundays we have run our cat and dog first aid courses.

Each course started just after 9.30am and involved learning about how to save a cat or a dogs life and hints and tips on what to do.

On Sunday the 9th after the cat course theory GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne took the participants over to the new multi purpose animal welfare building for a look around and some hands on with Gucci a lovely grey cat.

Yesterday during the training 'Eric' one of the Slovakian puppies made an appearance as a model and for some hands on in finding a heart beat.

Over the past few months the GSPCA team have been preparing and getting use to the new multi purpose animal welfare building.

It has already had a baptism of extraordinary use after 25 Slovakian puppies were isolated in its facilities when they were detained in August.

Over the past few weeks the GSPCA team especially Yvonne Chauvel, Helen Sharman, Anna Paint and Kim Marsh have been preparing sections for the BIG MOVE.

Last week during half term we ran a series of guided tours that proved so popular additional tours had to be added.

Every tour was a sell out and on Thursday and Friday due to demand we doubled up with over 40 attending each day.

The groups got to see Slovakian puppies to kittens, chicks to hoglets, tortoise to bunnies and much more.

During the school breaks we run a series of guided tours at the GSPCA and we have now planned for 2016 with some special tours for the children.
