2012 National Puppy Mill Awareness Day
On Saturday, September 15, 2012 Iowa Friends hosted the 3rd annual dog walk to bring awareness to Iowa Puppy Mills, coinsiding with the National Puppy Mill Awareness Day.
This year the venue was changed from the State Capitol to Gray's Lake, also in Des Moines. It was a beautiful day for a walk where everyone who attended shared their passion for awareness of Iowa's puppy mill problem.

2010 National Puppy Mill Awareness Day Dog Walk
On Saturday, September 18, 2010, Iowa VCA hosted a Dog Walk to commemorate National Puppy Mill Awareness Day. Despite the cold, dreary, rainy morning approximately 50 people (and their dogs) came to support this cause and bring awareness to Iowa's puppy mill problem.
Sen. Matt McCoy and Sen. Staci Appel showed their support along with Sonya Heitshusen of WHO, Channel 13 News and several of Iowa's rescue groups who set up displays to promote themselves and show off the dogs and cats they have available for adoption.
