EXTREME WIND WARNING – GSPCA Advice for your pets and wildlife with High Winds due

Submitted by Steve on 11:58, 31st Oct, 2023 | 0

The GSPCA asks that you think of your animals with the extreme high winds due.

Bad weather means it is difficult for hedgehogs and wild birds to feed normally, and young seal pups can easily be separated from their mothers.

Also we have to ensure our pets are safe and we must think of those that live outside if they are safe and if any precautions need to be taken.

With over 16 buildings at the GSPCA the upkeep and maintenance is always a challenge.

Also with the challenges with fluroscent tubes many of the old light fittings have needed changing.

The GSPCA would like to say a huge thanks to Edmunson Electrical who recently donated 30 No. 600 x 600mm LED 30 watt suspended ceiling panel lights for the GSPCA Training Room and a number of other areas which were recently fitted by Lamb Electrical.
