For all boarders we kindly ask for the following

1. We require all local emergency contact details to be updated.

2. Signed confirmation from a local resident (18yrs+) that in case of emergency they will be prepared to house your & care for your pet(s).


  • if either you are detained or unable to return to the island as scheduled 
  • if we are forced to close the Shelter due to a change in local conditions. 


We will of course strive to maintain normal operations looking after your pet(s) and our local wildlife throughout, however some things may be outside of our control.We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but we are sure you understand the reasons why.

The GSPCA offers a boarding service not only to dogs and cats, but also other species on request.


The Animal Shelter has a number of kennels dedicated for dogs which are cared for by our trained staff.  Staff endeavour to ensure that every dog is happy one whilst they are with us and that they enjoy their stay. 

All kennels have under floor heating and the dogs have music through the day to keep them entertained.  The kennels are extremely large with plenty of room for any size breed as well as a raised bedding area for them to relax and sleep. 

Situated in the heart of Guernsey we are not only central but we are set in a lovely rural area where we exercise them during their stay.

Seb, Natalie, Nathan and Gemma are the main carers for the boarding dogs with the assistance of other members of the team.  Shelter staff take part in APDT dog training certificates.  Many of the team have been Volunteer Dog Trainers working through their qualifications at the Shelters Dog Training Classes.

NEW CAT HOTEL - Mid July 2015 our new boarding cattery hotel opened. We have 22 new pens with underfloor heating, an heat air flow system, indoor and out door runs, a series of shelves and interlinking cat flaps to allow additional space for multiple cats.  If you would like to see the new facilities please pop in or call the Shelter to make an appointment.

When our Cat Hotel is full we do have possible overflow space - We also have boarding facilities for cats which have an indoor heated sleeping area adjoined to an outside exercise run.  The GSPCA have been boarding cats for over 60 years and staff members Sue, Jasmine, Anna and Ali are the main carers that run this unit with help from Yvonne, Abby and others when we are very busy.  They care for and adore every feline that comes to visit and pride themselves in making sure they have the best of care.

Other animals and birds

If you have other domestic pets that you are looking to board then please get in touch for details.
