Many will be shopping online over the coming days and searching for bargains as gifts.

Have you thought of the hundreds of animals in our care this Christmas and the incredibly difficult year we have all faced and bringing some joy and helping animals at the GSPCA?

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “After the hardest year we have ever faced in living memory at the GSPCA for so many reasons maybe you can help bring some Christmas cheer to the animals in our care.”

“From donating to our #GSPCACoronavirusCrisisAppeal sponsoring an animal or items from our Wish List there are many ways to support.”

“We have already had some amazing gifts from our Amazon Wish List which we have to say a huge thanks for from all of the team and animals.

“If you want to shop online here is a link to our GSPCA Amazon Wish List but before heading there if you register with Easyfundraising then every purchase we can raise extra donations from your purchase and to register please visit .”

“To see our full Wish List page please visit - .”

“From our Wish Lists you can see everything from Butchers dog food to dust pans and brushes.”

Here is the list of some items needed, but until the lock down is lifted we would ask donations (unless very large in which case call us on 01481 257261) to drop off at the collection points at the large Co-ops or Alliance as we are trying to limit the number of visitors to the GSPCA -

  • Butchers (we use loads for the hedgehogs and dogs)
  • Honey for the hedgehogs
  • Senior tinned/pouch cat food or applaws
  • Bird seed of any kind is very helpful
  • Small animal feed and small animal bowls
  • Wood/paper based cat litter or thomas cat litter
  • Fresh fruit and veg the animals love and we use daily - Kale, Parsley, Basil, chard, Cavolo Nero, Cress, coriander, carrots, spinach, raspberries and strawberries
  • Fairy liquid (we use for washing oiled birds)
  • Non-bio washing powder
  • Surgical spirit
  • Cotton wool
  • Nitrile gloves (medium especially)
  • Face masks
  • Pump hand soap
  • Bin bags
  • Hand towel
  • Loo roll
  • Dust pan and brushes
  • Towels
  • Blankets
  • We are in need of sheds to provide additional space for animals
  • Intensive Care Units

Steve continued “Another great way to supporting is by donating each month or why not sponsor a pen as a gift and to find out details please visit this web page  .”

“Maybe your business would like to support us and there are so many ways which you can see by visiting .”

“Without your support the GSPCA couldn’t achieve so much caring and helping well over 3000 animals every year.”

“If any business would like to support our work in any way from making donations to wish list items we would love to hear from you and please call us on 01481 257261 or email me [email protected] “

“Thank you for your thoughts and support this Christmas.”
