Submitted by Steve on 12:54, 12th Aug, 2022 | 0

At the GSPCA we currently have a hermit crab in need of a home.

Tamatoa is one of the more unusual animals in need of a home.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We have a number of animals in need of homes at the GSPCA from ferrets to cockerels, a king snake to a bearded dragon and Tamatoa the hermit crab is one of the most unusual.”

“Tamatoa arrived in April having been abandoned in his enclosure and thank fully despite his ordeal is doing very well."

Submitted by Steve on 16:28, 22nd May, 2020 | 0

With the current challenges we all need cheering up and what better way than sharing an update on an animal happily adopted from the GSPCA.

Hamish was adopted during lock down and here is an update from his owner -

“Just a few photos to show how Hamish has settled in, he has claimed our bedroom window sill as his early morning lookout post, and has a teddy to cuddle into in his bed next to the radiator in our bedroom.

He sits on the sofa between us in the evening watching tv or just under the sofa. He had a play last night with catnip, and seems very happy.


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 GSPCA on 14:56, 25th Sep, 2012 | 0

We need your help.

The GSPCA currently has two cats that next month will have been at the Shelter in search of a new home for over a year.

Felix and Victor are two strays that arrived at the Shelter last October as semi-ferals.  Although their behaviour has much improved with the TLC staff and volunteers have given them we are still in search of a very special home for these very independent cats.

The Shelter currently has over 25 cats looking for homes at the Shelter and many more strays and others being treated before they can go up for adoption.

The GSPCA Donkeys Dizzy and Naomi now in their new home

Submitted by GSPCA on 10:56, 2nd May, 2012 | 0

This weekend there were many tears at the Shelter as staff and volunteers waved a fond farewell to Dizzy and Naomi our two wonderful donkeys which went to their new loving retirement home.

They came into the Shelter at the end of 2011 as their previous owner could no longer care for them.

Naomi the quieter of the two who enjoys a simple head rub and some gentle fuss and Dizzy who on the other hand was hand reared so was used to human company and likes to be the centre of attention had been real stars at the Shelter.
