The Shelter was among the many organisations impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, which saw numerous fundraising events cancelled and extra financial strain as a result. However, even before the difficulties imposed by the lockdown, some animals had been waiting for the right owner to come along that could meet their specific needs.
Among the creatures ready to be rehomed are a trio of fish – two black moors called Swimshady and Big Fish and a Plecostomus called Vivian. The fish are all around two years old and have been searching for a home since February.
Additionally, two corn snakes – Phil and Mr Gilbert – have been searching for a home since the end of last year.
The JSPCA website says that Mr Gilbert ‘prefers coming out and about of his own accord’ as ‘when he is startled he can be a little bit grumpy if he is woken up too early.’
Meanwhile Phil is ‘a little nervous’ when removed from his enclosure but ‘friendly’ once he knows he is safe.
Also looking for a ‘forever’ home is Molly, a six-year-old German Shepherd who came to the JSPCA in March. Molly has underlying medical issues and is unable to live with other animals.
Anyone who would like to give an animal a home should contact the JSPCA on 724331 or visit jspca.org.je/register-to-adopt/ to find out more about the rehoming process.
