Submitted by Steve on 10:52, 28th Mar, 2017 | 0

The on-site GSPCA Charity Shop has this month welcomed three new faces who will be helping to run the on site shop to raise much needed funds for the hundreds of animals in our care and the thousands we help each year.

We are currently appealing for a kind company to help put a floor into the shop area which has currently got bare concrete.

We are looking at options of vinyl tiles as we allow dogs to visit the shop and appealing for either a floor company to help or a kind donation to help floor our shop.

50 years on the team at the GSPCA remember the Supertanker Torrey Canyon and all the wildlife affected

Submitted by Steve on 22:41, 16th Mar, 2017 | 0

On the 18th March 1967 Supertanker Torrey Canyon ran aground on rocks between Land's End and the Scilly Isles and leaked its cargo of oil into the sea.

The 974-ft (297m) tanker, which was carrying a cargo of 119,328 tonnes of crude oil, hit Pollard's Rock in the Seven Stones reef. The oil patch was believed to be the biggest ever to threaten the West Country coastline and the Channel Islands.

There were fears that the supertanker could catch fire or break-up in heavy seas.

Submitted by Steve on 21:50, 16th Mar, 2017 | 0

After hearing that a new gas boiler was on the GSPCA’s wish list for improvements to their facilities, Guernsey Gas has stepped in, fitting and providing a brand new Vaillant gas condensing boiler for the animal welfare charity.

Steve Byrne from the GSPCA explained: "Our old boiler had fallen into disrepair."

"Without hot water we are unable to carry out many of the tasks required to care for some of the animals we look after."

"This includes washing oiled sea birds, cleaning out animal enclosures and general cleaning for implements and utensils."
