Easter Bunny Build Appeal – Please donate to help us build a small animal department

Submitted by Steve on 23:52, 6th Apr, 2023 | 0

The GSPCA desperately needs to build a Small Animal Department.

It recent years at the GSPCA we have seen a sharp increase in the numbers of rabbits, small animals, birds and reptiles in need of our help.
This Easter we are appealing for your help to build a Small Animal Department with our Easter Bunny Appeal.

Thankfully we have an area which was our on-site Charity Shop which moved into Smith Street meaning we have a section to develop.

Did you know it is Guinea Pig Awareness Week?

Every year the GSPCA helps guinea pigs in many ways from strays, to those owners keep to give up to find a home to investigating cruelty.

Nicolle Morgan GSPCA Animal Care Assistant said “Guinea Pig Awareness Week, or GPAW, is a week of activities dedicated to improving the health and welfare of guinea pigs!”

“The 22nd - 28th March is the first ever awareness week for guinea pigs, organized by Burgess!”


GSPCA Adoption and Rehoming all moved online and over the phone - PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE SHELTER AT THIS TIME

Submitted by Steve on 14:25, 27th Mar, 2020 | 0

Due to Coronavirus the GSPCA is only operating essential services.  All of our rehoming is now online, telephone and through the post as we are avoiding visitors to the Shelter at all costs in line with advice from the States of Guernsey.

With animals still arriving and being rescued, unwanted, stray and abandoned the GSPCA have to look at ways we can help rehome animals in our care.

The 7 dumped Guinea Pigs found in St Martins will be multiplying soon

Submitted by GSPCA on 16:02, 29th Nov, 2012 | 0

After a check over today the GSPCA can confirm that at least one of the 3 female guinea pigs that were found in the same box as 4 males in St Martins earlier this week is pregnant.

We currently have a total of 14 adult guinea pigs at the GSPCA and will have many more in the next month or so.

The gestation period of guinea pigs is approximately 2 months and they often have 3 to 5 offspring which are called pups.  For the vet to identify that at least one is pregnant then she is likely to be at least 5 weeks and due very soon.


7 guinea pigs dumped in St Martins today are now safe and dry at the GSPCA

Submitted by GSPCA on 13:44, 26th Nov, 2012 | 0

Today 7 guinea pigs were found abandoned outside St Martins Church.

All quite young the 7 guinea pigs were found in a very dirty blue box.

This is the second group of guinea pigs that have been found abandoned inn Guernsey in the last month.  Thankfully both groups were found and were brought into the Shelter but the GSPCA would urge anyone that needs to rehome their pets and not to dump them as it puts them at risk.
