We are sad to report that despite keeping Achilles the grey seal pup alive since he was rescued on Saturday he sadly passed away during his operation earlier today.

Achilles had a number of ailments and injuries and required an operation and after two days of intensive care he was taken to the vets earlier today, sadly he didn't make it through the procedure.

All of the team and those involved did everything they could to help the rescued seal pup and all the team have been upset that we weren't able to save him.

The GSPCA heard the call for help and took a selection of the 57 cats in need of homes from the Shelter that could be suitable.
