The GSPCA are always trying to ensure we match up the right animal for the right home.

Animals come into the Shelter for all sorts of reasons and we have to ensure each is suited to a home that can meet its needs.

The GSPCA is a self-supporting Guernsey charity and we depend on the people of the Island for the funding needed to maintain our work for the animal welfare and rescue work that is carried out 24 hours 7 days a week.

Our current adoption procedure is as follows:-

Once your form is completed please email to [email protected] or post to GSPCA, Rue des Truchots, St Andrews, Guernsey, GY6 8UD and a member of team will phone you to discuss the animals in our care

We will then either carry out a home visit or set up a video call through Facetime, Facebook video messenger or Skype so we can do a virtual home visit to chat through the care and facilities/areas your new pet will have

A decision is made and we will call you to discuss the adoption paperwork and arrange a time to deliver your pet if there is a safe way to do so

We do have some limited pet goods on sale which can be delivered with your new pet(s)

Please return the adoption forms completed and signed in the stamp addressed envelope

Withing a week of adoption we would really appreciate pictures/videos and an update how you and your new pet are doing

The adoption donations are only a contribution to the costs of (depending on species), for example, neutering, microchipping, parasite treatment, vaccinations, care and the large running costs of GSPCA Animal Shelter.

We can blood test Cats for FIV / FELV for an additional £30 before adoption if you are interested in having this done.

If you are adopting a Rabbit or Ferret, we neuter and microchip them if they are old enough before you collect.
