AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture has revoked Class B dog dealer Kenneth Schroeder’s license after an undercover investigation at Georgia Regents University by The Humane Society of the United States, according to a press release.

Five random-source Class B dog dealers remain in the U.S. after the revocation of Schroeder’s, according to the HSUS. Schroeder and the USDA came to a settlement agreement on Jan. 15 after a USDA complaint was filed in September 2013 alleging multiple and serious violations of the Animal Welfare Act, including allegations of obtaining dogs from illegal sources.

In Nov. 2013, The Humane Society of the United States claimed Schroeder sold six dogs to GRU. Recently, GRU announced it would no longer acquire dogs from random source B dealers.
