At the GSPCA we have seen a fantastic response to our recent Birthday and Special occasion guided tours and have already got many booked in over the coming weeks. (Booking form at base of page)

From young to old we now offer a unique experience for a loved one, family member or friend to see behind the scenes at the GSPCA.

If you would like to bring a private group or party to the GSPCA for a visit and tour at the Animal Shelter we can arrange this in advance.

We ask for a minimum donation of £100 for a group (this is for 8 children and 2 free adult places) and an additional £8 per person with groups larger than 8 (restrictions do apply with children to adult numbers).

We can provide a birthday or gift pack if the tour is for a special occasion.

We have a large events room, tables, chairs, projectors, speakers with mic, and a number of toys or things for children on request.

Why not make it a full event and arrange for food, a cake or more all of which can be delivered through

Guided tours of the Shelter on average take about between 60 - 90 minutes and it is your opportunity to see behind the scenes, although for animal welfare reasons there are areas that are unable to be viewed.

If the event is for a special occasion the birthday or lucky individual will receive special treatment and be allowed some unique experiences holding and possibly feeding some of the animals in our care.
