ADVICE FOR DOG OWNERS - With only a week until beach restrictions for dogs on beaches please take care due to palm oil sighted

Submitted by Steve on 14:29, 24th Apr, 2017 | 0

In recent years each winter dog owners are warned to keep pets away from any oily white substances they may find on local beaches. This month the same substance has been spotted once again on Channel Island beaches and the GSPCA are asking dog owners to take care when along the coast.

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.

101 dalmatians and more puppies and dogs in desperate need of homes at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 22:41, 15th Feb, 2017 | 0

Today the GSPCA have just put up for rehoming over 101 Dalmatians.

The dogs were brought in as the owner decided they could no longer care for them.

From puppies to adults the many dogs are as yet to be named.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "The team have been kept very with so many new dogs in need of homes."

"We have never seen so many Dalmatians in one place in Guernsey."

"They are all shapes and sizes from puppies to adults and at the GSPCA we would love to find them their forever homes."

At the GSPCA we often get approached with the question 'Where can I take my dog?'

We have recently launched a facebook page to help us put a webpage together so that those with dogs and visiting canine owners can make the most of those dog friendly locations in Guernsey.

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

Submitted by Steve on 08:33, 17th Jun, 2016 | 0

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.
