Dead squirrels for research

Did you know the JSPCA Animals' Shelter collects dead red squirrels for research?

You can drop them at the Reception in anything from a bag to a jumper. This is so that the bodies of squirrels can be collected and post mortem examinations can be performed. It is important to have bodies that have not been frozen. This is a long term programme researching the prevalence of disease in Jersey’s red squirrel population.
