Iowa Puppy Mills Make Humane Society's 'Horrible Hundred' List
2 days ago
Iowa journalist Erin Murphy recently wrote that for the last five years, Iowa has held an outsized place on the national Humane Society’s annual publication of problematic commercial dog breeders. According to Murphy, advocates for humane treatment of animals say Iowa’s role as an apparent safe haven for habitually offending dog breeders — often called puppy mills — has been created by lax animal cruelty laws, weak enforcement of those laws, & powerful farming groups that resist stricter regulations they fear could encroach into agricultural territory.
To learn more about Iowa's ranking in the organization's most recently Horrible Hundred report, Des Moines FM host Chance Dorland spoke with John Goodwin, the senior director of the Humane Society of the United States' Stop Puppy Mills campaign.
