Puppy Auctions

It has become increasingly popular among non-profit organizations to offer Labrador Retriever puppies ‘for sale’ at auctions as a means of raising funds for the organization. The Labrador Retriever Club, Inc. opposes Labrador Retrievers being donated and sold at auction for any purpose, charitable or otherwise.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulates such ‘livestock’ (yes, puppies are livestock) auctions and requires the seller to have a USDA license. The full text of the policy can be found here USDA Puppy Auction Policy.
