Today is World Animal Day - Please help the 500+ animals at the GSPCA and here are a few ways you can
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)

World Animal Day is celebrated each year on October 4. It started in Florence, Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists. On this day, animal life in all its forms is celebrated, and special events are planned on locations all over the globe. 4 October was originally chosen for World Animal Day because it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and patron saint of animals and the environment. Numerous churches throughout the world observe the Sunday closest to 4 October with a Blessing for the Animals. However, World Animal Day has now gone beyond being the celebration of a Christian saint and is today observed by animal-lovers of all beliefs, nationalities and backgrounds. Animal blessings are held in churches, synagogues, and by independent Animal Chaplains in parks and fields. Animal rescue shelters hold fundraising events and open days, wildlife groups organize information displays, schools undertake animal-related project work and individuals and groups of friends or co-workers donate to animal charities or pledge to sponsor a shelter animal. At the GSPCA we help over 3000 wild animals and domestic through the doors every year and we currently have over 500 in our care. This Summer has been one of the busiest we have ever experienced in terms of numbers of animals from nearly 100 hedgehogs in our care to 50 rabbits, 30 reptiles to many parrots, dozens of cats to 20 ducks, hamsters to other animals in our care, many needing new and loving homes. Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “It is amazing the numbers of animals we help every day here at the GSPCA but we couldn’t do so much without the support of the public and local businesses.” “Today is World Animal Day and with over 500 animals in our care we are always appealing for support and help with the work we carry out 24/7 from donating towards the animals in our care, finding them new homes, helping volunteer with our work and I many other ways.” “If you would like to support our work then you can donate and find out more online, call us on 257261, pop into the Shelter in St Andrews, email admin@gspca.org.gg or by post GSPCA, Rue des Truchots, St Andrews, GY6 8UD.” "We have many wish list plans from a new dryer to our proposed new Wildlife Hospital all to help the many animals at the GSPCA and that pass through the doors 24/7." “We have so many rabbits and ducks in need of homes, as well as many lizards, turtles and many others which can be seen on our website or popping into the Shelter between 11am and 4pm 7 days a week.” "If you can't help adopt an animal maybe you could become an Angel pen Pal Sponsor or help towards one of our projects or wishes to help the 500+ animals in our care." "Without your support we could achieve so much and from all the animals in Guernsey and from the GSPCA we are so thankful for all the support we receive." "If you would like to help us in any way please do check out the links on our website, pop in or call us on 257261."

Could you 'Trick or Pet Treat' this Halloween & collect for animals at the GSPCA & safety tips
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)

Every year many children with parents or guardians head out at Halloween on the 31st October dressed up to celebrate the American tradition of 'Trick or Treat'. With the growing concern of the consumption of sweets and sugar why not this Halloween raise funds for charity. With the dark evenings it is important to ensure you follow some simple safety hints and tips, but this year could your Halloween night out help benefit the hundreds of animals in need in Guernsey. At the GSPCA we currently have over 500 animals in our care and over 3000 are rescued, cared for and rehomed by the GSPCA every year. When out 'Trick or Treating' why not instead this year say 'Trick or Pet Treat' and maybe add 'to help animals at the GSPCA'. Whether donations of change, animal feed or even actual 'Pet Treats' every penny helps make a difference. If you have a bucket to take out why not click here to download a label to stick to it to help advertise your collection http://gspca.org.gg/sites/default/files/Trick%20or%20Pet%20treat.pdf. Not everyone celebrates the Halloween tradition and it is important to please keep this in mind and respect the wishes of those who decline, but for those that join in and support your collection please do celebrate and thank them for their generosity. If you haven't got children or would rather not have them go out could your work place, group or school hold a 'Trick or Pet Treat' mufti day or event to help raise funds for animals at the Shelter? Halloween Safety Tips for Trick or Treating Children should always go out trick or treating accompanied by a responsible adult. If you have a group of kids going, the parents should choose two or three of them to go along and keep an eye on things. It is always best to keep to early evening to avoid upsetting homes where the residents may plan an early night due reasons such as their health or young children. Plan a safe route so parents know where their older kids will be at all times. Set a time for their return home. Make sure that your child is old enough and responsible enough to go out by themselves (any doubts please ensure an adult is present and accompanies them). Make sure that they have a mobile phone. Let your children know not to cut through back lanes and fields if they are out alone. Make sure they know to stay in populated areas and not to go off the beaten track. Let them know to stay in well lighted areas with lots of people around. Explain to them why it can be dangerous for kids not to do this. If they are going out alone, they are old enough to know what can happen to them in a bad situation and how to stop it from happening. Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you. This way you can check for any problem candy and get the pick of the best stuff! Instruct your child to never go into the home of a stranger or get into their car. Explain why this is not a good idea and what to do if someone approaches them and tries to talk to them. Make sure your child carries a torch, glow stick or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible to cars. Let them know that they should stay together as a group if going out to Trick or Treat without an adult. Explain that not everyone celebrates Halloween and if they decline to donate or give then that is the persons choice and should be respected politely. Some home owners will have animals and pets themselves and to take care when approaching or leaving a property. It is extremely important that where gates are present they are closed after use. At the GSPCA we want all animals and people to have a fun and safe Halloween and for those looking to support us this Saturday thank you so much as we and the animals really appreciate it. Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "This Halloween could you do something a little different to help animals in Guernsey?" "Instead of 'Trick or Treating' could you say 'Trick or Pet Treat' to help raise funds for animals in Guernsey." "Many of us as parents are concerned with the amount of sugar our children eat and many children love animals and helping them so why not combine the two this Halloween." "We want to ensure those going out are safe whether helping collect for the GSPCA or for themselves so we have popped a few safety tips online to keep in mind before heading out." "Thank you to all that choose to help us and the animals in our care this Halloween." If you would like a copy of the 'Trick or Pet Treat' poster please call 01481 257261, pop into the Shelter or email stevejbyrne@gspca.org.gg Thank you for your support.

Spooky Tours and Halloween Treasure Hunt Tours at the GSPCA October Half Term
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)

The week of Half Term the GSPCA are running Spooky Tours and Halloween Treasure Hunts at the GSPCA. Last year we had young vampires, cats, zombies and monsters for the scary events at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews. The groups on arrival will have lots of spooky things to do and see from Webster our tarantula to the many lizards in our care, black cats and many others some with scary names. Tours take about 45 minutes and once the treasure hunt quiz is complete all will get prizes for their great fancy dress and doing well in the quiz. The children will then hunt for spooky numbered cards in a very Halloween themed room. With ghouls and ghosts, smoke and bubbles, disco lights and spiders, wiggly worms and tunnels the children have to find hidden Halloween cards to win prizes. Last year all had a fantastic time and the parents and the children all left with a pumpkin bag full of gifts and saying - "This is fantastic, thank you so much." "I would have loved this when I was a child." "What a great afternoon, thank you." "They loved it, thank you." Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager and Grim Reaper Tour Guide said "We had a lovely spooky last Halloween and it was great to see the effort the children made with their fancy dress." "Once again this year we will decorate our events room with a Halloween theme and the children and the parents will be shown around the Shelter, playing a quiz and searching for the Halloween cards for prizes." "It is £20 per child or £17.50 with an Island Mums card and spaces are limited so please book early.” "All the funds raised will help the bats, cats, owls and many other animals at the GSPCA, as well as help towards our new Wildlife Hospital." "Please do call 257261 to book your childs place or via our paypal link and indicate your ideal day."

To see updates for this event please visit - https://www.facebook.com/Sidneysfundraising/ Corinne and her volunteers each year hold amazing evenings in aid of local charities and from all at the GSPCA thank you. Jill Daniels, started her singing career in the late 1970s even in those far off days her similarity to Vera Lynn was well recognised and earned her the title "The Sweetheart of the Midlands" . At that time Jill was selected to work in many of the top Cabaret Nightclub Restaurants such as the Talk of the Midlands (Nottingham), Talk of the North (Eccles) Heart of the Midlands(Birmingham) Embassy Club (London) as Support to Numerous Star acts and bands. Although at that time Jill was renown for her excellent renditions of Vera Lynn favourites. She did not actually specialise until she was asked to put on a special Show for the VE DAY 50th Anniversary Celebrations and a whole new show was produced at considerable expense, the music being especially created from scratch for all of the Wartime Favourites in Jill'singing key, (which happens to be the same as Dame Vera's) to recreate as near as possible the original versions, The VE DAY Shows were a total success and bookings started flowing in for the Wartime Show which is known as "HITS OF THE BLITZ". The same success was repeated for the MILLENNIUM Celebrations and for The Queens Jubilee Celebrations and Jill Daniels is now known Nationally and Internationally as Britain's No1 singer of WWII Songs and Patriotic Anthems. http://www.gspca.org.gg/blog/sidney%E2%80%99s-sponsored-events-presents-back-40%E2%80%99s-uk-act-jill-daniels-saturday-10th-november-2018
