Nouska needs your help - A husky needs an operation to remove a cancerous lump

Submitted by GSPCA on 12:10, 3rd Jul, 2013 | 0

Nouska is an older husky that has found his way to the GSPCA Animal Shelter and it has developed that he has a cancerous growth in his chest.

To help save Nouska and lengthen his life next Wednesday he is having an operation to remove the lump.

With any operation there is both a risk and a cost but the vets and the team at the GSPCA feel that despite Nouska being over 10 years old he has a lot of life and love to give.

First microchipped Hedgehogs in Guernsey - Please help monitor Hedgehogs in Guernsey

Submitted by GSPCA on 12:22, 27th Jun, 2013 | 0

Yesterday the GSPCA microchipped the first Hedgehogs in Guernsey.

Scatters then Bonnie were the first two Hedgehogs to be chipped at the Shelter and the first to be know to be chipped in the Channel Islands.

The GSPCA have been using paint and plastic tags to help with monitoring the hogs released from the Shelter but these as with many methods fall and run off.

The GSPCA deal with hundreds of Hedgehogs every year and with declining numbers in the UK the Animal Shelter want to know if a Hedgehog returns to the Shelter that we can accurately tell this is the case.

The GSPCA would like to thank Rebecca Johns who popped into the Shelter yesterday with a fantastic donation of £157 which she has raised through a sponsored silence.

Rebecca downloaded a sponsor form from the GSPCA website and printed it off with help from her boyfriend and managed not to say a word during the event on the 9th June.
