On Monday GSPCA Animal Welfare and Eduction Officer Sarah Creasey popped along with GSPCA dog Cassie to Torteval Pre School.

Cassie is an American Cocker Spaniel that was adopted by one of the team at the GSPCA and with her lovely temperament she often goes out on school and group talks.

The Torteval Pre School children were able to groom Cassie and Sarah talked to the group about the needs and how to care for a dog.

Sarah Creasey Animal welfare and Education Officer said "On Monday I went to see Torteval Pre school, Cassie came with we and we talked to the children about what dogs need and how we can tell if our dogs are happy or sad."

"The children all had a go grooming Cassie and were very gentle."

"They were a really nice group of children, who listened well and hopefully learned a little about dogs!"

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Education plays a large part in the work of the GSPCA as not only are we talking to schools and groups each week, but we also run a series of courses at the GSPCA."

"The next training course we have is a Cat First Aid course this Sunday at 9.30am for just £15 and a Dog first Aid Course the following week."

"If a group would like a talk about the work of the GSPCA or caring for animals please do let Sarah Creasey our Animal Welfare and Education Officer know."

If you would like to arrange an education tour of the GSPCA Animal Shelter or group talk please email Sarah Creasey, the GSPCA Animal Welfare and Education Officer - [email protected] - or call the Shelter on 01481 257261.
