The GSPCA Purple Week starts on Thursday 8th February and celebrations will carry on until the 16th with our anniversary being Valentines Day the 14th February. Ideas to get involved.......

From purple ties to GSPCA wrist bands, pin badges, or maybe you have a better idea? If you would like us to provide items to sell like wrist bands please get in touch. A Mufti or Dress Down Day is a great and fun way to raise funds to help animals in Guernsey and celebrate our 145th 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 during the GSPCA Purple Week to celebrate 145 years of animals being helped in Guernsey.. 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. The sets are prenumbered tickets and are £1 a ticket of 8 for £5. Some of the themes are: Frozen Minions Secret Life of Pets Angry Birds Dinosaurs Trolls Paw Patrol Pony Tails 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. We have over 70 Giant Animal Mascot Suits and if you would like to borrow them to raise funds please do get in touch for more details. FACT - Did you know the Shelter has cared for two lion cubs, two turtles and two monkeys in the last 15 years and currently has a seal pup on site? Fancy a sponsored event?

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?

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "In 2018 the GSPCA will have been helping animals in Guernsey for 145 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 over 3000 animals and birds 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 rising costs and projects ahead such as tiling our kennel floors and rebuilding our wildlife unit we hope that Guernsey will wear purple for animals and join in our birthday fun in February."
