Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)
During the school breaks we run a series of guided tours at the GSPCA and we have now planned up to 2020 with some special tours for the children. You can also book a tour for a special event or birthday.
This coming Half Term is your opportunity to visit behind the scenes at our Animal Shelter in St Andrews and see the work being carried out.
We ask for a minimum donation of £7 per person and £5 per child, or £20 for a family of four or £18 with an Islands Mum card.
The tours take around 80 minutes and you get to see in many of the departments, interact with some of the friendly residents and a variety of species. The special tours can take a little longer.
Tours are a maximum of 20 people per tour, so please book early. The special tours are also a maximum of 20.
Some of the animals you will have the chance to see will be cats, rabbits, birds, hedgehogs, dogs looking for homes and some of the other wildlife.
If you would like a certificate as a gift then please do get in touch for more details
