A culmination of years of work, the new law makes many meaningful and long-overdue improvements to Iowa’s companion animal cruelty laws, recognizing the need to hold everyone to a higher standard of care, whether you’re a shelter/rescue, dealer, breeder or simply a pet owner.

Many thanks to everyone who emailed their lawmakers time and time again asking them to support HF737 and thank you to the lawmakers who supported this effort.

Today we’re celebrating this win for the animals!
