Cats have a 1 in 33 chance on Guernsey roads - could you help us with our online survey?

Submitted by Steve on 12:44, 10th Nov, 2015 | 0

Every year the GSPCA are called out to and help between 200 and 300 cats that are injured or killed on the road every year.

During the darker winter months the numbers are at their highest and in just one evening recently 4 cats were brought in to the Shelter between the hours of 10pm and 4am that were killed on our roads.

Over many years the worries for cats on busy roads has always been a real concern.  However the GSPCA as have many other rescues noticed that the smaller roads and lanes are often a greater risk and cause of cats being hit by moving vehicles.

Today we would like to extend a huge thank you to Liz Kerr who popped in to take professional group pictures of 24 of the 25 Slovakian puppies with the team and volunteers at the GSPCA.

One pup was out on foster, but the other 24 joined GSPCA staff and volunteers for their first family picture in a group.

The puppies which have been in the GSPCA care for over 7 weeks are very soon to be officially rehomed and the team have been working through the hundreds of inquiries and applications.
