Ruby a lovely black and white cat arrived at the GSPCA earlier this year.

She had a number of health issues on arrival and sadly as a stray no owner was found.

Many of the health issues are much better but her ears have caused her constant problems and it  now transpires that due to a growth she will need an operation to remove the lump and an ear canal.

GSPCA helping cats, kittens and a dog from the Irish NW SPCA find new homes in Guernsey

Submitted by Steve on 13:29, 28th Apr, 2022 | 0

At the GSPCA we help 1000’s of animals every year, but we have seen a drop in numbers of dogs and cats needing our help find homes locally, although we do help them in many other ways.

In recent years we have been trying to help animals from UK and Irish SPCA animal shelters and Association of Dog and Cat Home members, but with the Covid Pandemic this has been very difficult.
