Last month we took the GSPCA stall along to the North Show.  The North Show is one of the main events in Guernsey's summer calendar, and takes place in the wonderful rural setting of Saumarez Park.

The Guernsey North Show and Battle of Flowers is run by the Northern Agricultural and Horticultural Society and the GSPCA are very grateful to them for allowing us to come along.

Every year we help hundreds of stray animals find their way home but last month one feathered stray decided he wanted to take a holiday before being reunited with his owners.

Last month the GSPCA had a call from the harbour about a stray parakeet that had been found on the Crystal Symphony Cruise Ship that had flown on board while they were anchored at Guernsey.
