GSPCA Purple Month – Half Term Educational Guided Tours
Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)
This month we celebrate 150 years and GSPCA Purple Month.
As part of the celebrations we have planned Educational Guided Tours to see some of the areas of the Animal Shelter, look back at our rich history and the plans for the future.
This week you can see behind the scenes at the GSPCA.
We ask for a minimum donation of £15 per person and £8 per child, or £40 for a family of four and a 10% if you have an Islands Families card or an Angel Pen Pal Sponsor.
The tours take around 80 minutes and you get to see in a selection of the many departments, interact with some of the friendly residents, see a variety of species and learn about our history and our plans for the future as we celebrate 150 years.
Tours are a maximum of 20 people per tour, so please book early.
Your guide will be a member of the GSPCA team and they will lead you around the Animal Shelter and explain our work and how we help 1000’s of animals and do so much more.
Some of the animals you will have the chance to see will be cats, rabbits, birds, ferrets, reptiles, dogs as they are walked around the site and possibly some of the wildlife.
