We are pleased to pass on an update on Slygo today as he leaves the Animal Shelter to be placed in a rehabilitation home.  Here is a short messgae from Charleen Clench co founder of Animals In Need -

'Over the last few months Animals in Need have been working with the GSPCA and authorities to capture Slygo the stray terrier that has been loose it the forest area since February of this year.

As you are all aware we were overjoyed that working with the GSPCA we were able to capture him during the early hours of Tuesday 23rd of April.

We are very grateful to all involved especially the press, general public, the GSPCA, the authorities and charities that all helped in the search and capture.

The GSPCA have been kind enough to hold Slygo for the last week and with Animals in Need help assist with the assessment of the little terrier that has been through so much and the decision has been made that an experienced long term foster home is required to help with his rehabilitation.

Slygo will be flying to the UK today to start his rehabilitation with Jackie ( co founder of Animals in Need ) who has a large farm in a rural area with large secure gardens and other Dogs which will all help in his socialization program that he now requires. Slygo will also be working with our behaviorist.

Animals in Need along with the GSPCA will of course release additional pictures as he settles in and keep you updated on his progress as we are aware of how well Slygo has captured the hearts of many islanders and rest assured with the knowledge and experience of those in his new home and the other Dogs that live there that he will certainly have a very happy life.

Thank you again to all involved we have really appreciated everyone's help.
