Of all domestic species we help more cats than any other with over 1000 cats that are stray, hit by vehicles, unwanted, cruelty cases or being brought in as their owners can no longer care for them.

Kitten survives car engine journey - Rambo now Beau is doing extremely well after a near death experience

Submitted by Steve on 13:07, 1st Sep, 2016 | 0

Early last month a young kitten survived a near death experience.

A member of the public when out on a drive heard a strange noise coming from their car and when they stopped they discovered a young kitten who was barely old enough to be away from his mother.

The kitten understandably was extremely scared and bolted. Some time was taken in catching the young animal which survived a very dangerous situation and has been at the GSPCA for almost a month after Sarah Ozanne who was the GSPCA Ambulance Driver went out to rescue the kitten.

Rescued kittens covered in fly strike now doing well at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 22:51, 6th Oct, 2015 | 0

On Thursday last week the GSPCA ambulance was called out to two very young kittens in desperate need.

The call came from Les Fauconnaires where two young kittens at only 4-5 weeks were found covered in fleas and fly strike with no mother in site.

The area was searched for any signs of other kittens and the two rescued were transported to the vets as they were cold and in need of veterinary care.

Survey from the GSPCA - With the UK making it compulsory to microchip dogs what should we do in Guernsey for our pets?

Submitted by Steve on 14:41, 14th Jun, 2015 | 0

At the GSPCA we help thousands of lost and found animals in Guernsey every year and we would like to know your views in relation to compulsory microchipping of pets in Guernsey.

In the UK many dog owners will be unprepared for new legislation which makes it compulsory to microchip their pets from April 2016.

Statistics from Petlog show that Guernsey has more cats than any other area in the UK

Submitted by Steve on 22:27, 25th Feb, 2015 | 0

In Guernsey the GSPCA estimate that there are approximately 8,000 to 10,000 pet dogs and also the same number in cats owned.

This estimation has recently been reinforced with the Petlog statistical data which shows in their figures that Guernsey is an island of cat owners.

The Mirror recently looked at cat microchipping data from Petlog to determine where most cats live, and the most popular cats in each area.

Do you remember Spot the feral kitten rescued last November? Spot now Minion loving her new home

Submitted by Steve on 17:52, 4th Feb, 2015 | 0

You may remember last November a feral kitten was rescued from the Admiral Park area in Guernsey.

The kitten was extremely nervous and she had a belly full of worms and a coat covered in fleas.

After a series of treatments and care at the GSPCA she was fit enough to go to a new home.

This week at the GSPCA we have received an update and we are pleased to announce she is doing extremely well.

Anna Paint Senior Animal Care Assistant said "Spot was extremely nervous and in bit of a state when she first arrived at the GSPCA last November."

Remembrance the kitten found on site at the GSPCA - please watch out for others in the St Andrews area

Submitted by Steve on 13:01, 10th Nov, 2014 | 0

Yesterday at the GSPCA we were kept very busy from loose horses to injured cats.

Not only were members of the GSPCA team helping animals in need around Guernsey on Remembrance Sunday, but there was one that needed helping on site at the Shelter in St Andrews.

Animal Care Assistant Sarah Ozanne and volunteer Fleur Pizzey were busy cleaning and feeding the animals in the outdoor runs when they could hear a lot of 'meows'.

It didn't seem to be coming from the cattery building so on investigating they spotted a young kitten in the fields at the Shelter.

Although in Guernsey we seem to be well into Autumn young animals are still being found.

Only in the last few days a very young feral kitten has been found in the Admiral Park area.

The 10 week old male kitten which was found late on Friday night was full of worms and fleas and is extremely timid and nervous.

Phoenix the kitten has a lucky escape - PLEASE ENSURE YOU CHECK HEDGEROWS & OVERGROWN AREAS BEFORE STRIMMING OR CUTTING

Submitted by Steve on 10:33, 17th Jun, 2014 | 0

With the sunny weather and gardens blooming the GSPCA have had a busy few weeks with injured wildlife found in areas that have been strimmed or cut.

The main casualty have been hedgehogs and even mothers with young that have been found whilst an area has been cleared or cut.

Over recent years we have seen a decrease in feral cat colonies thanks to the work of the GSPCA and that of Guernsey Animal Aid Cats, but it only takes one unnetuered female cat and one male to result in a litter of kittens.
