Iowa Pet Breeders Association (IaPBA) is Dedicated to the advancement of professional companion animal breeders through Education and Collaboration.

Statement from Nancy Magnusson,

President of the Iowa Pet Breeders Association

Iowa Pet Breeders Association (IaPBA) is saddened and appalled to have been informed about mistreatment of dogs by a southeast Iowa breeder. IaPBA recognizes its obligation to promote the highest standards of dog welfare in keeping with our values and the expectations of the public.

IaPBA's mission is to educate our membership in the most up to date practices for the betterment of canine care and wellbeing. IaPBA has a code of ethics that all members are duty-bound to follow and violations of this code will automatically terminate membership.

We will look forward to a swift resolution of this matter and to continue to support responsible breeders who adhere to our code for ethical breeding.

Iowa Pet Breeders Association Mentor Program
