The GSPCA is currently inundated with animals in need of new homes.
With World Animal Day on the 4th October we are giving Islanders a chance to view many of the animals in need by having open days and evenings at the GSPCA Animal Shelter on Tuesday the 1st and Wednesday 2nd October between 11am and 8pm and on Thursday 3rd October between 11am until 4pm.
Many of the small domestics including Hamsters, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Degus, Budgies, Cockatiels, other Parakeets, Ferrets will be in our Event and Training Room where there will be facilities to get a drink or snack, a selection of donated and new goods on sale, a seating area and of course GSPCA team members on hand to ask any questions.
For those wanting to view the cats available after 6pm on Tuesday and Wednesday staff will also be on hand to take you in and show you the cats in need of a new home.
With nearly 50 cats in need of new homes and another 50 birds and small domestics many of which have been rescued or gifted into the Shelter as their previous owners can no longer care for them we are appealing for new homes for these animals in need.
On Friday the 4th October which is World Animal Day we will be in Market Square, St Peter Port with a stall and a selection of animals from the Shelter that are looking for new homes, so if you can’t make it up then please pop along whilst we are in town.
The GSPCA is asking you to please spread the word of animals in need of new homes at the Shelter.
Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said ‘Nearly all areas at the Shelter are close to full capacity and we really need to find the 100′s of animals in our care new homes.’
‘They have to be the right homes but we have everything from a Bearded Dragon to Hamsters, chickens to ferrets, and so many cats.’
‘Many of the visitors to the Shelter are looking for younger cats but we are especially appealing for homes for our older feline friends that may have not had the best of lives.’
