As many people know we have been running our amazing dog training classes at the Shelter for over two decades during which time we have been VERY ‘fur’tunate (sorry) to have some wonderful volunteers dedicating their time and expertise to help us promote responsible dog ownership, welfare in dog training and, of course, help owners navigate their way through what can seem a mine field of owning and training a new pooch.

The GSPCA carries out a huge range of services for the community and animals in Guernsey.

During the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown in Guernsey the GSPCA has continued 24/7 essential operations and we must thank the community and our team for their understanding and co-operation.

These have without doubt been the most difficult months in living memory for the team from ensuring we continue our vital work to raising the much needed funds which continues to be a real struggle due to the challenging times we find ourselves in.
