Help raise funds for our 144th Anniversary during the GSPCA Purple Week 10th to 17th February
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)

The GSPCA was founded in 1873 and this February to help celebrate 144 years caring for animals in Guernsey we are asking for your help. There are many ways you, your school, group, work place, business can help celebrate. The GSPCA week starts 10th February and celebrations will carry on until the 17th with our anniversary being Valentines Day the 14th February. Ideas to get involved....... Why not wear purple for the day? The GSPCA logo is purple and we are encouraging people to wear purple for a day or more during this week from purple ties to GSPCA wrist bands, pin badges, or maybe you have a better idea? A Mufti or Dress Down Day is a great and fun way to raise funds to help animals in Guernsey and celebrate our 144th anniversary. How about a 'Take Your Dog to Work Day' although normally this is celebrated in the summer why not hold a day at your work place early. Maybe you would like a tombola set for your work place? We can arrange a ticketed tombola with prizes to help raise funds for the animals in our care. Dress as an animal for the day? Its fun and a great way to celebrate the fact that the GSPCA help 1000's of animals and birds every year. FACT - Did you know the Shelter has cared for two lion cubs, two sea turtles and two monkeys in previous years and currently has a seal pup on site? Make your page with JustGiving OSA Recruitment staff supporting the GSPCA A sponsored event? From a sponsored silence to a wax, stop smoking to a dog walk there are many ways you can raise funds to help animals in Guernsey. To download a sponsor form please Download a GSPCA Sponsorship Form FACT - Did you know the GSPCA has 300+ animals in their care at any one time? Sell goods for the GSPCA? The GSPCA has a number of new GSPCA goods on sale including pens, pin badges, wrist bands, car stickers and small toy dogs which we can provide in a counter box to help raise funds for the Animal Shelter. Help raise funds for the GSPCA 140th year Help raise funds for the GSPCA 140th year To apply for these or the other items please download a form on this link Help raise funds for the GSPCA 140th year FACT - Did you know that in 1919 the first home for stray dogs and cats was at 11 St John Street, St Peter Port. 5/- (five shillings) a week was paid to the tenant for housing the kennels and looking after the animals? A collection box / wishing well? The GSPCA are always looking for businesses and places to locate collection boxes around the Island. By clicking the above link or emailing stevejbyrne@gspca.org.gg you can apply for one to help raise funds for the GSPCA. Also if you have a bigger premises maybe you could accommodate one of our GSPCA Wishing Wells. These can be seen at the Shelter which are made on site and are a fantastic way to highlight the need of raising funds for the GSPCA and that your business supports our work caring for animals in Guernsey. GSPCA Wishing Well FACT - Did you know in October 1929 the GSPCA purchased its present site at Les Fiers Moutons, St Andrews. The house, outbuildings and ¾ vergee of land were bought freehold for £400.00 plus a further 2 vergees of land for £120.00 and an extra £5.00 included the spring and well? There are many ways you can join the GSPCA Purple Week - Celebrating 144 years Caring for Animals in Guernsey between Friday 10th February and Friday 17th February. Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "In 2017 the GSPCA will have been helping animals in Guernsey for 144 years and we are asking animal lovers to help join in and celebrate with us." 'We are looking at holding a number of events during the week and if anyone has any other ideas please let us know.' "It costs over £600,000 a year to help care for the 1000's of animals and birds we have through our doors, provide the 24 hour 7 day a week emergency service for animals, the welfare work, dog training, education and more and we are appealing for people, schools and businesses to get involved to celebrate the wonderful work we have done and have to do for the future." "With ever rising costs we hope that Guernsey will wear purple for animals and join in our birthday fun in February." "Our biggest wish and project we are hoping to acheive is renewing all 42 kennel floors which will cost in excess of £25,000 as well as raising the much needed funds to run the Shelter 24/7 and if you would like to support us please give us a call on 257261 or email us at the GSPCA." "We are looking at holding a number events through February and details will be on our website."

Dog First Aid Course
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)

Every year we hear of pet owners being faced with circumstances of their pets being injured or caused harm often through no fault but an accident. To help pet owners each year we hold a series of training courses and we have set dates for first aid courses for those interested in helping dogs and cats. The dates set for 2017 are: Cat First Aid 6.30pm - 8.45pm Wednesday 10th May 2017 - Ref - Cat 10/05 Dog First Aid 6.30pm - 8.45pm Thursday 18th May 2017 - Ref - Dog 18/05 Dog First Aid 6.30pm - 8.45pm Wednesday 22nd November 2017 - Ref - Dog 22/11 All first aid courses are a minimum £20 donation and you must book your place by the lunch time on the day of the training session. Within the sessions you get the chance to learn about what to do if you were faced with an emergency situation with your dog or cat. All participants receive handouts, a few goodies and a certificate. Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "The dog and cat first aid courses are designed to help those wanting to learn how to perform life saving first aid to their pets or animals they may come across." "We cover all aspects of first aid for pets from CPR to seizures and all for just £20 which goes towards helping the many animals in our care at the GSPCA."
