FIREWORK ADVICE from the GSPCA and calendar of displays

Submitted by Steve on 14:47, 20th Oct, 2016 | 0

Every year we hear of firework related incidents involving animals and children. While fireworks may be exciting and pretty to look at and its fun to celebrate Guy Fawkes with a bang, we must put our safety and the safety of our pets and the local wildlife first.  Over the coming weeks our Animal Welfare Team will be visiting islands’ schools in an effort to promote the Fire work code and advise people how to keep themselves and their animals safe.

Lorna Prince GSPCA Welfare Manager said "Fireworks this year are being sold between 28th October and 5th November."

Don't forget the fireworks and ensuring your pets are safe on New Years Eve

Submitted by Steve on 16:02, 16th Dec, 2015 | 0

On New Years Eve at midnight to celebrate the New Year many will be setting off fireworks, so please think of your pets and animals around you.

Every year the GSPCA are called out and receive stray dogs and cats during periods of fireworks, which have either escaped or run off due to being scared by the loud bangs they make.

Sadly less than 45% of the stray dogs and cats are microchipped that are found as strays and brought to the GSPCA, and even less have collars with tags.

This week many will mark the 5th November with firework parties.

Last year the GSPCA launched a calendar and asks those having public and private displays to let us know so we can have a central location for those around Guernsey know where and when these events take place.  The calendar is linked to the GSPCA Twitter and Facebook pages so that reminders are sent out earlier in the day during these events.
