The Abolition of Third Party Sale of Puppies and Kittens in England (Lucy’s Law)


The Government’s decision to pass this law was in 2018 and will come into force in April 2020.

The law states that no-one other than the breeder is allowed to sell puppies to the public. No third parties or dealers are allowed to advertise or carry out such a trade. The law comes with the advice to the public to see the puppies with their mother and to visit the breeder more than once. If properly enforced this law should bring about the end of ‘puppy farming.’
