Today the GSPCA have just put up for rehoming over 101 Dalmatians.

The dogs were brought in as the owner decided they could no longer care for them.

From puppies to adults the many dogs are as yet to be named.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "The team have been kept very with so many new dogs in need of homes."

"We have never seen so many Dalmatians in one place in Guernsey."

"They are all shapes and sizes from puppies to adults and at the GSPCA we would love to find them their forever homes."

Slovakian puppy reunion - there can be a happy ever after - please help support banning the illegal puppy trade

Submitted by Steve on 22:50, 16th Mar, 2016 | 0

Last August 25 Slovakian puppies were stopped at Guernsey Customs in an awful state on route to the UK.

Then in September the two people transporting them were in Guernsey Magistrate Court for animal cruelty and fraud to hear their verdicts.

A 59-year-old man from the Slovak Republic was found guilty of animal cruelty and fraud and fined a total of £2,500.  He was told that the fine must be paid from custody or he would serve the alternative of 14 days in prison, which he quickly paid.

Submitted by GSPCA on 08:36, 15th May, 2012 | 1

The GSPCA since the launch of our special offer of £4.99p has microchipped over 100 dogs and cats.  With nearly 1 in 2 stray cats and dogs that come into the Shelter have no form of ID the GSPCA launched an offer to try and ensure as many pets are chipped as possible.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'We are so pleased with the number we have chipped so far but there are tens of thousands of dogs and cats in Guernsey and if there are only half that are chipped we still have a long way to go.'

Below are some of the details, facts and figures released last month -

Please help our animals in this cold weather

Submitted by GSPCA on 16:23, 8th Feb, 2012 | 0

With the cold weather the GSPCA are appealing for help towards electric heat pads for the animals in our care.

 

We have a variety of species from cats to hedgehogs all in need of items to keep them warm in this cold snap.  Although we have enough to manage at present we are appealing for donations so that we can purchase additional heaters in case we have more sick, injured or abandoned animals brought in this winter and what will no doubt be a busy time when the fledgling season starts.

Christmas Gifts Should Have Meaning & Not Real Feelings

Submitted by GSPCA on 01:40, 22nd Dec, 2011 | 0

Every year the GSPCA have to deal with animals after the Christmas period that become discarded or unwanted after being given as gifts on Christmas Day.

With only a few days until Christmas the GSPCA are asking people not to rush out and get a pet for a Christmas present even if its on Santas list.  Instead we ask that the family or household think seriously and if you are looking to bring a new pet into the home then leave it until after the festive period when households return to normal and it is less stressful for a new pet in a new home.

GSPCA condemns puppy farms and buying animals off of the internet

Submitted by GSPCA on 19:11, 17th Nov, 2011 | 0

The GSPCA has had recent reports of not only individuals that may have received puppies from puppy farms in the UK but also individuals that have been deceived online from websites advertising puppies for sale.

The GSPCA always encourages responsible pet ownership and by purchasing animals on line or from a puppy farm is far from helping animal welfare.
