Huge thank you to Bethany our official photographer for Bonnie the seal pups release on Jethou

Submitted by Steve on 12:01, 3rd Jul, 2016 | 0

A week back Friday a young lady from the Youth Commission North Youth Centre joined the GSPCA team on the Bumblebee boat to Jethou to release Bonnie the grey seal pup.

Bethany became a very lucky lady after the winner of a competition to join the release was unable to come and he donated it to a young deserving person.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager contacted the Youth Commission to see who they thought would benefit from this once in a life time opportunity and they asked Bethany to join the team.

Seal pups Trinity and Eden are back in the wild - Thank you to all involved with the fantastic release on Jethou

Submitted by Steve on 16:05, 24th May, 2014 | 0

Friday the 23rd May was not only a joyous and wonderful day for the team at the GSPCA, but also filled with tears and hope.

Grey seal pups Trinity and Eden who were rescued in January of this year were found very close to death and if it hadn't been for the rescue and rehabilitation at the GSPCA Animal Shelter in St Andrews, Guernsey then they certainly wouldn't have made it in the wild.

Yesterday morning GSPCA staff made preparations to release the young seal pups which were rescued separately earlier this year.

The GSPCA helps care for and rescue thousands of animals every year and without our wonderful volunteers we really couldn't do it.

With the success of the first last month which drew a crowd of 18 new volunteers to the Shelter the second is planned for 6.30pm on the 17th July.

If you see kittens at Icart Point please let the GSPCA know

Submitted by GSPCA on 11:25, 10th Jul, 2013 | 1

This week we have received a young kitten that was rescued out at Icart Point.

The GSPCA are concerned that there may be others and if you are out in the area and come across any please get in touch with the Shelter.

Tiger as he has been named was found extremely thin, no mother in site and full of worms, fleas and may not have survived if he had not been rescued.

This time of year kittens are often rescued and brought into the GSPCA and just this morning another feral was rescued and brought in from the Bouet area who is now named Molly.

Hanois the grey seal pup has his first swim & we still need your support for the Big Fish Appeal

Submitted by GSPCA on 17:46, 7th Feb, 2013 | 0

Today Hanois our second grey seal pup this winter got his first swim since being rescued in one of the GSPCA Animal Shelter pools.

At only 3 to 4 months of age and having being kept warm during his rehabilitation after being found sick and injured near L'Ancresse 4 weeks ago he wasn't too keen on his first dip.

Geoff George Animal Collection Officer and main seal carer at the Shelter said 'A Bit like Jethou Bumblebee was, Hanois wasn't that keen coming out in the cold and diving in the water but once in he had a good look around.'
