Little Black Dog Guernsey Rescue and Adoption (LBD) is a local dog rescue non-profit organisation which was created by Johanne Taylor and Sandra Hunter in 2016. In 2017, LBD became a Guernsey registered charity (CH563) and is run by a small team of ladies, with many more helpers behind the scenes.

Their sole aim is to rescue abandoned dogs from Spain and LBD now work in conjunction with SCAN (Society for the Care of Animals in Need) who are a registered rescue charity in Spain, who don’t only rescue dogs but cats as well. SCAN take dogs and cats into their rescue shelter in Spain, often saving them from having to enter the kill stations. SCAN assess the dogs and provide rehabilitation if required and also bring the animals back to good health if necessary. They ensure that all the necessary veterinary requirements are undertaken under their supervision, in order for their animals to meet all medical requirements to be adopted in Guernsey.

SCAN take care of all the technicalities, paperwork and travel arrangements in order to arrange the deliver of rescue dogs to their new adopters in Guernsey. All the rescue dogs are blood tested, vaccinated, neutered or spayed (if old enough), rabies inoculated, treated for worms, ticks, fleas and are micro chipped and vaccinated against Leishmaniosis. Both rescues work closely with the States of Guernsey veterinarian department and not only adhere to all the mandatory medical requirements regarding the importation of dogs, but also to additional tests and treatments which they suggest.

LBD take care of the home checks locally and, in conjunction with SCAN, the matching and suitability of dogs to new adopters and the final placement of dogs. LBD deal with all the adoption arrangements which need to be put in place, provide photos of your adopted dog and updates whilst awaiting arrival. LBD also provide follow up and assistance to any dogs placed in Guernsey if required.

If you are interested in adopting a dog from Spain but would prefer to avoid all the complications that the medical and transport arrangements bring or if you are only considering adopting a foreign rescue dog but still a little unsure then get in touch by emailing LBD will be more than happy to meet with you and go through the adoption process in detail.
