First microchipped Hedgehogs in Guernsey - Please help monitor Hedgehogs in Guernsey

Submitted by GSPCA on 12:22, 27th Jun, 2013 | 0

Yesterday the GSPCA microchipped the first Hedgehogs in Guernsey.

Scatters then Bonnie were the first two Hedgehogs to be chipped at the Shelter and the first to be know to be chipped in the Channel Islands.

The GSPCA have been using paint and plastic tags to help with monitoring the hogs released from the Shelter but these as with many methods fall and run off.

The GSPCA deal with hundreds of Hedgehogs every year and with declining numbers in the UK the Animal Shelter want to know if a Hedgehog returns to the Shelter that we can accurately tell this is the case.

It is believed that hedgehogs are on the decline and a UK hedgehog charity are asking for your help to find out if that is true.

Hedgehog Street are carrying out a hedgehog survey between the 1st February and 31st August.

Are your pets microchip details up to date?

In the last 24 hours the GSPCA have received two dogs and a cat that all were chipped but unfortunately did not have up to date details.

The GSPCA are urging all pet owners to ensure you animals microchip details are up to date.  In this modern world with mobile phones we often change numbers and occasionally move address but without these details being kept up to date can mean your pet isn't reunited as quickly as it could be.

The GSPCA are appealing for the owner of an injured male black cat that has recently come into our care.

Sadly the cat was injured after falling into a well in St Martins but after being rescued and brought into the Shelter it has now been taken to the vets where it is under intensive care due to its injuries .

The cat was brought in the early hours of yesterday morning.  It is a male cat estimated to be around 3 – 4 years old and is mostly black with a small white spot.  He is well muscled and very friendly despite his injuries.

Shelter Staff between 10am and 2pm last Saturday were on hand to chip cats and dogs and to chat about responsible pet ownership.  No appointment was necessary and it was the first ever Welfare Road Show the GSPCA have organised and we were so pleased with the turn out

The GSPCA held the event at the car park by La Guelles Flats at La Vrangue Estate, St Peter Port where all we are asked for was a donation but with no actual charge to microchip the dogs or cats.

Need your dog or cat microchipped?

On average 2 in 3 dogs and cats that come into the Shelter as a stray aren’t chipped.

A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is inserted between the shoulder blades of a cat or dog and is a permanent form of identification.

This year both the GSPCA and Animal Aid Cats slashed their prices to £4.99 to help encourage pet owners to get their pets microchipped and it is still available at this price with both charities.
