Next week from Monday is your chance not only to see behind the scenes at the GSPCA but also a chance to handle and meet some of the friendly pets at the Shelter.

During the school breaks we run a series of guided tours at the GSPCA and we have now planned for 2016 with some special tours for the children. You can also book a tour for a special event or birthday. For details on special tours please see below.

This is your opportunity to visit behind the scenes at our Animal Shelter in St Andrews and see the work being carried out for the new build.

We are arranging the guided tours on a series of dates at 2pm.  

We ask for a minimum donation of £6 per person and £4 per child, or £17 for a family of four or £16 with an Islands Mum card.  

Later in the year we have some themed tours which are £18 per child or £16 with an Islands Mums card.

The tours take around 80 minutes and you get to see in many of the departments, interact with some of the friendly residents and a variety of species. The special tours are a little longer.

Tours are a maximum of 20 people per tour, so please book early. The special tours are also a maximum of 20.

Some of the animals you will have the chance to see will be cats, rabbits, birds, hedgehogs, dogs looking for homes and some of the other wildlife.

If you would like a certificate as a gift then please do get in touch for more details

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Due to a fantastic response last year we have planned guided tours at the GSPCA during 2017 for the school breaks and some weekends."

“There are a few very friendly animals that live on site that those on the tour will get a chance to learn about and in fact handle with myself or one of the team.”

"If you would like to see behind the scenes and the many animals here at the Animal Shelter then book by calling on 257261 or online via our paypal link."

"We would like to thank all that have attended the tours and for the wonderful feedback we have received."
