At the GSPCA we see all sorts of strays and yesterday we were handed a stray conure that was found on Burnt Lane exhausted.

The team at the GSPCA have named the green, black and red bird 'Bert' who is recovering well from his or her ordeal.

He or she is possibly a red or maroon bellied conure and is an adult bird with no ring for identification.

Yvonne Chauvel Senior Animal Care Assistant said "The stray conure was exhausted when rescued and brought to us yesterday, but is recovering well and very chirpy now."

Appeal to find Kiki the turkeys owner

Submitted by GSPCA on 22:06, 14th Aug, 2012 | 0

The GSPCA are appealing for the owner of a stray white turkey that has been at the Shelter for over a week.

Kiki as she has been fondly named was rescued from the Forest Road area on Saturday the 4th August after being reported to the Shelter wondering the streets.

She has been under treatment and is doing well but as yet no owner has come forward.  Kiki has a very friendly nature and staff are confident that there must be an owner that is missing this lovely bird and we are hoping to have them re-united.

Slippery snake does a Houdini act

Submitted by GSPCA on 11:39, 9th Jul, 2012 | 0

Just over a week ago a stray snake arrived at the Shelter after being brought in by ACO Geoff George.

The snake was spotted basking in the sun and was placed safely in a container where she spent several days before doing a Houdini act.

The little lady managed to escape and Shelter staff are now looking for her.

It is highly unlikely she has got out of the Shelter as she was in a secure room and building but if you do spot a Californian King Snake please get in touch.
