We love to hear from animals that have been adopted from the GSPCA.

Yesterday we received this wonderful message from the owners of two rabbits adopted from the GSPCA last year:

We just wanted to send you an update of two bunnies we adopted in October. They have been re named Coco & Fudge (aka Madonna & Roulenska), we love them so very much and think they are very happy with us too! Lexi & Carrie xx

At the GSPCA we have nearly a dozen rabbits in need of homes some of which were at the Shelter when these two were in our care.

This morning a baby bunny has been rescued with a broken leg.

The young animal was found near Genats Estate in Castel and has just been to the vets to be seen what can be done to help this poor defenceless young rabbit.

GSPCA Ambulance Volunteer Warden Andrew Green rushed the injured bunny to the vets and thankfully despite his injury he has received initial treatment and has received treatments including pain relief.

The GSPCA are appealing for the owner to please call us on 257261 as soon as possible.
