Last weekend the GSPCA joined in with the fantastic annual Torteval Scarecrow Festival.

This is the second year we have been allowed to join this wonderful family Guernsey event which is held in high esteem by so many.

Last year the GSPCA focused their scarecrow display on Jessie the beagle who had been stray for over two months and was caught only weeks before the event.

This year thanks to a GSPCA Torteval volunteer and Mr McIntyre the Animal Shelter has entered its first ever entry.
