Submitted by Steve on 15:29, 24th Sep, 2021 | 0

Tomorrow is International Rabbit Day and to celebrate we are not only appealing for homes for our longest stay rabbits and encouraging all owners to ensure their bunnies have a happy hoppy life we are also launching our Small Animal and Rabbit Build Appeal.

With over 400 rabbits through our doors in the first 9 months of 2021 and many other small animals we are appealing for funds to transform an area at the Shelter to make a purpose built small animal section. We estimate it will cost a total of £60,000, please donate to help the man animals that come into our care.


WARNING TO ALL RABBIT OWNERS – Diseases killing rabbits in Guernsey and advice

Submitted by Steve on 10:38, 1st Sep, 2021 | 0

The GSPCA is asking all rabbits to take great care as Rabbit Haemorraghic Viral Disease (RHVD2) variant 2 is being seen once again here in Guernsey and a surge of rabbits with myxomatosis are being seen with the large numbers of rabbits around Guernsey.

These fatal diseases are a huge risk to unvaccinated rabbits and especially to those in outside enclosures.

The GSPCA helps over 150 wild and domestic rabbits every year, although this year we have already had over 323 through our doors since the 1st January.

What is RHVD2?

Submitted by Steve on 15:34, 23rd Oct, 2020 | 0

Beckie Bailey tells us about Jemima the bunny “Jemima has spent 873 days at the shelter looking for her forever home. “

“Jemima did not have the best start in life, thats why she was brought into the shelter.”

“She was paired up with a male rabbit for sometime, they were getting on swell. Randomly the male attacked her and bite her badly on her genital area. She was rushed to the vets and had surgery. Jemima had a slow but successful recovery. Jemima is scarred physically but also mentally, she is now scared of other rabbits.”

GSPCA Adoption and Rehoming all moved online and over the phone - PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE SHELTER AT THIS TIME

Submitted by Steve on 14:25, 27th Mar, 2020 | 0

Due to Coronavirus the GSPCA is only operating essential services.  All of our rehoming is now online, telephone and through the post as we are avoiding visitors to the Shelter at all costs in line with advice from the States of Guernsey.

With animals still arriving and being rescued, unwanted, stray and abandoned the GSPCA have to look at ways we can help rehome animals in our care.

Submitted by Steve on 15:05, 3rd Sep, 2019 | 0

Last night the GSPCA wardens were called out to rescue a stray bunny from L’Ancresse.

The very friendly grey and white adult lop eared rabbit sadly has no microchip and the GSPCA is appealing for information to get this lovely rabbit home.

Earlier in the day the GSPCA Ambulance Driver was called to help another poorly black rabbit which was also a lop eared rabbit, but this one was found at Pleinmont.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Just after 9pm last night our GSPCA Volunteer Wardens arrived with a lovely grey and white lop eared rabbit that was found at L’Ancresse.”


It was certainly a hoping Easter at the GSPCA with bunnies

Submitted by Steve on 16:38, 26th Apr, 2019 | 0

The GSPCA has recently seen a huge rise in the numbers of rabbits coming into our care.

With 25 rabbits looking for new homes and many more coming in over the next few days Easter was certainly a busy time at the GSPCA for those that care for the rabbits.

Many of the GSPCA rabbits looking for homes are now outside on our Bunny Hop Hill and we are not only appealing for new homes for those in our care but we are also appealing for funds to help build new enclosures for the rabbits at the GSPCA.

With 25 currently at the Shelter we are still very busy and in need of homes.

Beckie Bailey GSPCA Animal Care Assistant and head of the bunnies said “We have had over 50 rabbits in our care recently and it has been very busy.”

“There also a number of diseases that affect rabbits here in Guernsey and we urge all rabbit owners to see their vet to ensure they are vaccinated and up to date with their medical needs.”
