A CHARITY set up just over a year ago to save dogs from being killed in Spain has now rescued more than 60.

Little Black Dog – Guernsey Rescue and Adoption was formed in August 2016 to save dogs from so-called ‘kill shelters’ in the north of Spain.

‘We have a network of ladies in Spain who go in to the kill shelters who organise the release of the dog,’ said Johanne Taylor, the brains behind Little Black Dog.

‘At that stage the dog is microchipped, neutered, blood-tested, rabies inoculated, treated for internal and external parasites and they get a pet passport.’

While dogs tend to be treated as a member of the family in Guernsey, they said that is not always the case in Spain.
