On 11th February, 1873, a meeting was convened in the rooms of the Societe Guernesiaise “for the purpose of considering the expediency of establishing in the Island a Societe for the suppression of Cruelty to Animals” and the Dean of Guernsey was called to the Chair. The Patron of the Society was His Excellency Lt. General Froome.

Volunteers Week – Thank you for your incredible support and how to get involved

Submitted by Steve on 12:51, 2nd Jun, 2021 | 0

The GSPCA really could not do so much without its amazing team of volunteers and supporters.

From the Committee to those that walk dogs, fund raisers to those that help with admin, dog trainers to cattery cleaners, gardeners to those helping with IT, the companies who send their staff to help to so many others the list goes on and on.

The last 18 months has certainly been incredibly difficult and especially so for the GSPCA and providing our 24/7 services with all the bio-security rules in place, and many still as the team still work in many challenging circumstances.
