Earlier this month we held our annual #GSPCAPurpleWeek which this year celebrated 147 years of the GSPCA helping animals in Guernsey.

During our anniversary event we held our second Volunteer Induction of 2020 and greeted 18 new faces keen to help us at the GSPCA.

Tim Pellett GSPCA Training and Community Officer was on hand to greet and meet the new helpers wanting to help in a variety of ways and made them comfortable in one of our training rooms.
