The Society was founded on Valentines Day 1873 but complete records did not commence until 1919.

The first home for stray dogs and cats was at 11 St John Street, St Peter Port. 5/- (five shillings) a week was paid to the tenant for housing the kennels and looking after the animals.

On the 14th February 1873 the GSPCA was born.

Next week the GSPCA will be over 139 years old and been helping care for the animals both on land and sea in Guernsey for nearly 6 generations.

On Monday we will be posting a number of pictures as well as a write up on the history of our work and the Shelter.  We will also be including a little of the plans we have for the future. 

So this Valentines Day if you have a quiet night in planned why not read up on the wonderful animal welfare work and love that the GSPCA has given over the years.
