Caring for 500+ animals means we always need equipment, feed, medications and so much more to run the Shelter, rescue animals and care for them.

Collared Lizards abandoned out in the cold left to die

Submitted by Steve on 16:57, 9th Feb, 2018 | 0

Just over a week ago two Collared Lizards were rescued after being abandoned outside in the cold with their tank and no heating and would have surely perished if they hadn’t been rescued.

The GSPCA Ambulance Wardens went out to rescue and collect the lizards and on arrival it was apparent they weren’t well.

Once in the warm and provided with food their condition improved but after a closer veterinary examination there were real concerns for one of them.

Mexico on entry weighed just 30g looking very thin and Oklahoma 34g very bloated.

Catrina the cat a year on from near death now enjoying a loving new home

Submitted by Steve on 17:34, 18th Jan, 2018 | 0

Do remember Catrina the cat who nearly died last year?

She was found having been hit by a car on a cold, dark, wet evening with multiple injuries, very thin and weak.

It took many months for Catrina to get back to health which included operations, medication and a lot of TLC.

Just before Christmas Catrina was given the okay to be rehomed by the vet and it didn’t take long to find her a wonderful new family.

We’ve just heard from Catrina’s new mum and wanted to share the great news.
