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.

Here are the details of the GSPCA dog training classes run by Lorna and her wonderful team of dedicated and trained volunteers -

Following reports that a puppy in Cornwall has died after biting into an e-cigarette refill, vets are warning pet owners to ensure they are kept out of reach of animals.

British Veterinary Association (BVA) President and vet Robin Hargreaves has said 'This is a tragic case and very worrying when you consider how many people are now using e-cigarettes. Nicotine poisoning acts very quickly and can be fatal, especially when large doses are involved.'

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.

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.
