Last month the Fire Service kindly helped the GSPCA rescue a trapped wood pigeon.

Michelle Champion GSPCA Warden who was called to the scene said “The pigeon was stuck between a window and safety glass at the Royal Terrace.”

“It kept trying to move but was absolutely stuck.”

“I pressed all the buttons on the front door to the building and eventually found someone to let me upstairs but there was no one in any one of the three apartments that I worked out it must belong to.”

On Sunday 1st October the GSPCA held a Fun Family Day at the Mallard Cinema where the GSPCA took over all 4 screens to show a selection of films chosen by the public.

Sadly due to the weather the planned car boot, charity stalls and dog show were sadly cancelled and the GSPCA moved their stall into the foyer of the Mallard Cinema.

The films were well attended and included the Secret Life of Pets (Screen 3), Lion King (Screen 2), Chicken Run (Screen 4) and a packed Jungle Bunch (Screen 1).

Reptile numbers a growing concern in Guernsey

Submitted by Steve on 16:54, 30th Oct, 2017 | 0

The growth in exotic pets has seen a rapid growth in many parts of the world and this is no exception here in Guernsey.

At the GSPCA we have seen a dramatic increase in reptiles in recent years.

Earlier this year saw the first ever Guernsey animal welfare prosecution with the 2012 legislation with an owner of a bearded dragon and 3 snakes who were found emaciated and dehydrated.

During 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 we would see between 1 and 3 reptiles a year of lizards and snakes at the GSPCA.

WEATHER WARNING - With windy stormy weather please watch out for oiled seabirds & seal pups

Submitted by Steve on 16:06, 20th Oct, 2017 | 0

This weekend across the Bailiwick the weather is set to put our animals and wildlife at risk.

Often during the autumn and winter months with the high winds and stormy weather makes it difficult for wild animals and birds to feed and rest.

Also with the high winds we have to ensure our pets and animals kept outside are safe and secure.

The GSPCA are asking those that live around and visit our coast to please watch out for injured animals in need as well as seal pups which can get separated from their mothers at this time of year especially when we see bad weather.
