Last week we had a visit from Guernsey Press reporter Helen Devonshire who got to meet Bengi the oldest dog in need of a home at the GSPCA.

Helen was visiting as the Guernsey Press were kindly doing an article to try and help find Bengi a new and loving home.

GSPCA kennel staff Teresa Mourant and Seb Goman had the privilege to show Helen one of their favourite dogs currently in our care.

Teresa said "We all love Bengi at the GSPCA as he is such a character."

This Friday June 23rd is 'Bring Your Dog to Work Day' - instead of a dress down day could your dog come to work for a donation

This Friday June 23rd 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.

Could you donate to Bailey a very sweet Shih Tzu's operation and care at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 09:42, 2nd Jun, 2017 | 0

Bailey a 3 year old Shih Tzu is an extremely sweet and wonderful natured lady which all of the staff and volunteers have fallen in love with at the GSPCA.

Since arriving at the GSPCA, as sadly her owner could no longer care for her, it was quickly established that she was in need of an operation and a number of treatments.

Last week Bailey went along to the vets to be sedated for an operation after having blood in her urine and difficulty urinating. The vets performed an operation which resulted in removing 4 very large bladder stones.

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.
