As the New Year came and the Wildlife Unit filling with animals nearly every day, the hot water demand has been at full tilt for cleaning the many cages and feed bowls.

The boilers in this building being over 20 years old decided that they could cope no more and failed in January leaving the staff boiling kettles whilst we tried to figure out what to do.

Please help our animals in this cold weather

Submitted by GSPCA on 16:23, 8th Feb, 2012 | 0

With the cold weather the GSPCA are appealing for help towards electric heat pads for the animals in our care.

 

We have a variety of species from cats to hedgehogs all in need of items to keep them warm in this cold snap.  Although we have enough to manage at present we are appealing for donations so that we can purchase additional heaters in case we have more sick, injured or abandoned animals brought in this winter and what will no doubt be a busy time when the fledgling season starts.

Visitors enjoyed the tours around the GSPCA Animal Shelter

Submitted by GSPCA on 18:07, 16th Jan, 2012 | 0

This weekend we welcomed Islanders to our first of the two planned guided tour events.  The sun was shining and the three tours were received extremely well.

The visitors were walked around the Shelter being shown the facilities and getting close to the 200 resident animals and birds.

The tour started in the newly refurbished wildlife unit and went to each of the Shelters departments meeting staff and volunteers whilst finding out what we do and our plans for the future.

Wildlife Advice With The Windy Start To 2012

Submitted by GSPCA on 20:19, 4th Jan, 2012 | 1

The start of 2012 has already brought the Animal Shelter a number of sick and injured animals & birds from around the island but with the continuation of the windy weather we are asking everyone to keep a good look out.

The bad weather means it is difficult for hedgehogs and birds to feed normally and the young seal pups can easily be separated from their mothers.

Harry the hoglet is happy and well this morning and is already off on a little adventure.  After a night in the care of the GSPCA Steve Byrne, GSPCA Manager has spoken to Dawn at Guernsey Hedgehog Rescue Centre who has agreed to take the little hoglet into their care.

The GSPCA take in all sorts of wildlife but the Hedgehog Centre has over a hundred hedgehogs and Harry will need to learn to grow up with little friends.  Steve after speaking to Dawn this morning has arranged for transportation so Harry can be taken in by Dawn and her fantastic team of volunteers.

Harry the baby hoglet

Submitted by GSPCA on 19:53, 8th Sep, 2011 | 0

This evening a baby hedgehog was found all on its own by a kind passer by who discovered it with no mum in sight.  The poor little thing was found wet, cold and hungry and is now in our care. 

Now named Harry, the little hoglet is all tucked up warm with a comfy bed, plenty of food and will remain with us until old and healthy enough to be released.
