The GSPCA is pleased to announce that our first Counter Boxes are now in place at Tangles Hair Design in St Sampsons.

Collected by Vikki Bougard from Tangles Hair Design who is supporting the GSPCA this year, they now have a collection of Small Labradors, GSPCA Pens, GSPCA Pin Badges and GSPCA Wrist Bands.

The GSPCA only launched this range last week to help celebrate GSPCA Purple Week and our 140th Birthday which is only a few weeks away.

We have a number of other places interested and if you, your school or business would like to get involved then we are asking you to get in touch.

There are two kinds of boxes one being £1 which has either GSPCA Purple Wristbands or GSPCA Pens and a £2 box with either GSPCA Pin Badges, GSPCA Key-rings or Little Labrador's in them.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'We are very grateful to Vikki from Tangles Hair Design.'

'We have been Caring for animals in Guernsey for 140 years next month and we are hoping that businesses, offices, schools and shops will get involved with the celebrations and to raise money to ensure that we can be here for another 140 years.'

'With nearly 300 animals from seals to kittens at the Shelter we really appreciate everyone that supports the GSPCA.'

'With rising costs and the need to build a new Cattery and Quarantine Building we hope that Guernsey will wear purple for animals and join in our birthday fun in February.'
