We Exist to   •   Get Action Alerts   •   Attend a Weekend Legislative Forum   •   Now and Coming Up

The Iowa Federation of Humane Societies was established in 1975 with the express purpose of promoting the advocacy and welfare of animals through an association of licensed animal shelters, humane societies, animal welfare groups, animal advocacy organizations, and concerned individuals working cooperatively for humane education and legislation.

We Exist to

unite county and local humane societies and animal protective societies and promote their activities

encourage the support and sponsorship of humane education programs

advance the education of the public on the subject of animal protection, exploitation, and abuse by cultivating the public’s understanding that all animals experience suffering

secure and support just laws for the prevention of cruelty to and the protection of animals through “grassroots” legislative action

Here is the background and particulars about currently-active animal welfare bills in the

Iowa Legislature

Federal legislature

03/06 (F)—Iowa Legislature Funnel Week One—most bills that aren't passed out of a committee by the end of the week are most likely dead, barring some extraordinary actions. As we enter Funnel Week One, most of the bills related to animal welfare issues are still not out of committee, so things may move quickly this week.

For the most up-to-date information regarding which bills make it through the funnel, check us our Facebook page.

Check out our 2015 Animal Welfare Conference scheduled for September 20-21.
