Increase in calls about dogs worrying sheep and livestock - please ensure your dogs aren't putting other animals at risk

Submitted by Steve on 22:57, 7th Mar, 2017 | 0

In the last week the GSPCA have had a number of calls of dogs worrying livestock and not under control in public places.

During Spring many farm and wild animals are preparing to give birth or nest and dogs not kept under control can really put these animals and their young at risk.

Over the last few days the GSPCA have been out daily to sheep that have escaped from fields and some have been as a direct result to dogs being out with no owner in sight chasing the animals from their enclosures.

Next Friday June 24th is 'Bring Your Dog to Work Day' - instead of a dress down day could your dog come to work for a donation

Next Friday June 24th is Bring Your Dog to Work Day.

Having a dog in the room can make human colleagues more cooperative, reduce stress, increase job satisfaction and productivity.

When adopting a dog or any animal from the GSPCA we often ask how many hours potential owners may be at work.  Perhaps the question should actually be - are you able to take your dog to work?

Discussing the benefits of taking a dog to work might just result in a match with a dog we have in for homing.

WARNING TO DOG OWNERS - white oily substance found on Guernseys coast could pose a danger to dogs

Submitted by Steve on 17:50, 13th Jan, 2016 | 0

The Environment Department is advising dog owners to keep pets away from any white substance they may find on local beaches.

Small lumps of a white waxy substance have been found today at Grandes Rocques Bay by a member of the public. Lumps of a similar substance found in south Devon and Cornwall in December 2014 were identified as degraded edible oil or fat. If the substance is degraded oil, whilst not harmful to human health, it could pose a danger to dogs if it has gone rancid.
