Review for Iowa Friends of Companion Animals, Des Moines, IA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

The nonprofit does great great work against the cruelty in Iowa puppy mills. But since it is Iowa Friends of Companion Animals, I would like to see them also do something for the suffering/death of cats, as cats are companion animals also. There is a great lack of low cost spay and neuter services in most rural towns of Iowa; resulting in many homeless animals that are put to death or suffer as strays because there are not enough homes and very few "no kill" shelters (some rural towns have no shelters at all).

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?

Unsure

Hi Cats 14. There are several groups working on spay/neuter in the state but no one was working on the puppy mills. That is why we took it on. The amount of work required is huge and the expenses large and we have very limited resources so we choose to stay focused on one issue and not dilute our effectiveness by engaging in other animal welfare issues. Thanks for your comment.
