I wish these people lobby for regulations and humane treatment for the poor dogs that are trucked in and out of the state.
Or better yet use the money the raise to actually help the shelters, instead of "lobbying" for a change in laws rather than lobbying for the enforcement of the laws in place already.

Top notch organization! Donations are spent wisely and they are true to their mission. I am grateful to IVCA's work in my state.

This organization is a first class operation. They work tirelessly to improve the quality of animal welfare regulation in the state of Iowa, as they relate to puppy mills. Education of the public is essential to the well-being of companion animals and ending suffering in Iowa puppy mills. This group is making it happen. I recommend that anyone who is even a remote pet lover find a way to get involved with or follow this group!

Far above any others I've worked with professionally, this nonprofit organization adheres to their mission and provides factual data to inform the public and our legislators. I'm proud to have them in the corner of animal advocacy.

This organization works tirelessly to protect animals from harm. We run a rescue which is honorable but what Mary is doing is so much more. She is working towards prevention! This organization continues to inform the public of the horrors of puppy mills. I hope that one day they will prove to law makers that puppy mills have no place in Iowa.
