Below are photos showing conditions in several Iowa puppy mills. These photos were obtained from the USDA. A description of the violation captured in the photo is included in most of the images. The images are sorted by the county where the facilities exist. The number of USDA licensed commercial dog-breeding facilities in each county is listed though there may not be photos for every one of those facilities. Some facilities whose photos are included may be out of business now but we are leaving the photos up so that viewers may see what has been allowed to go on. This is important because very little has changed which would keep this from happening again. The number of adult breeding dogs in each of the pictured facilities is also provided. This number changes over time. We’ll work hard to keep this information up-to-date but for the most current information please send a request to
