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 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."
