After 10 years our Commercial Washing Machine recently decided it could no longer continue.

We are currently shopping for single phase equipment that could deal with the blankets and towels that come from over 200 animals a day.

The current machine has been working 7am to 7pm 7 days a week for 10 years and we are looking at a machine which could carry out this difficult task.

We have a number of quotes coming in and it is likely that a 20kg machine will cost in the region of £5500.

We would be extremely grateful if we could find a sponsor to help with the costs of a machine that makes a huge difference every day helping ensure that the many animals of clean bedding and towels.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Animal Shelters around the world rely heavily on their washing facilities and we would love to find someone kind enough to sponsor a new piece of equipment."

"To replace our current machine which no longer works at the GSPCA is likely to be around £5500 and we are appealing for help towards a machine which is an integral part of the operations at the Shelter."

"If you can help us with a new machine or even towards it please donate via our online links, over the phone 01481 257261, by post to the Shelter or please email me on [email protected]."

Jinx pictured with our current washing machine is one of many cats at the Shelter in our care.  At the present times we have nearly 300 animals in our care which include chickens to rabbits, dogs to cats, a kingfisher to a guillemot, rats to ferrets, parrots to budgies, a robin to gulls and many more.
