According to the Animal Legal Defense Fund, Iowa is the 2nd worst state for animal welfare laws in the country!! And by far, we have the MOST livestock animals of any other state (101,347,500 at last count). That number doesn't include the 17,000+ dogs in puppy mills in our state either! :(
Iowa has very limited regulation and oversight of the care and welfare of these animals. Iowa also has an "ag-gag law" that makes it a felony offense to record images or video of animal abuse or neglect situations.
WHO IS LOOKING OUT FOR THE WELFARE OF OUR ANIMALS?????
If you love animals, please stand up for them. Make your voice heard. Positive change can be made on a legislative level. Sign up for the ARL's Humane Action Network to learn more about how you can help animals in the state of Iowa: www.facebook.com/arlhumaneaction/?fref=ts...
