Appeal to help improve our wildlife pond - 25 metres of drain pipe or guttering needed & other ways to help

Submitted by Steve on 11:48, 26th May, 2016 | 0

For the next stage of improving the grounds at the Shelter with the help of St Andrews Floral Group we are concentrating on our wildlife pond which has sadly been dropping each year in level due to a number of issues with its natural lining to hold the water which comes from a natural spring under the GSPCA.

We are continually fund raising to improve this beautiful natural feature on site which benefits much of the wildlife that lives on and around site from birds and ducks to frogs and insects and recently we have received a number of donations to enable us to start this work.

After an operation to remove a lump from his throat and an overnight stay Nouska the Husky is back at the Animal Shelter and doing well.
