Each year the GSPCA help around 200 stray dogs, rehome around 50 dogs a year and help countless more from cruelty cases to owners needing assistance or advice.

As dog owners will know our four legged friends can find themselves in all sorts of situations and this course is designed to help empower dog owners with some very basic but life saving skills to help their beloved dogs if they have an accident or incident.

Every year we hear of pet owners being faced with circumstances of their pets being injured or caused harm often through no fault but an accident.

Submitted by Steve on 17:08, 29th May, 2014 | 0

The GSPCA couldn’t carry out saving, rescuing and caring for the thousands of animals that come through the doors every year without the support of the staff and volunteers that work tirelessly every day and night.

To recognise the team at the GSPCA we have been asking for nominations to recognise the staff and volunteers for their dedication, hard work and outstanding effort.

Nominations were accepted both in house, online and via the post and we received an overwhelming number of wonderful comments for five staff in particular and fifteen volunteers each quarter.
