I was one of the many people who was unaware of the existence of puppy mills until I started to see information posted on Facebook by the Iowa Friends of Companion Animals. My heart hurts for the dogs and puppies in these horrible places, and I support the work done by this amazing group to bring their plight to people's attention. "Man's Best Friend" needs our help, and I feel that the best hope of changing the laws in favor of the dogs is by supporting Iowa Friends of Companion Animals.
