A dozen potential fox, bobcat, and coyote farms in Iowa

The following addresses were obtained from public records, indicating dozens of farms (or other type of operation) that imprison foxes, bobcats, coyotes, and mink in Iowa.


Coalition Against Fur Farms has obtained hundreds of similar addresses from numerous states, each of which may be fur farms, which will be posted in the coming weeks. We will offer the same disclaimer each time:

  • These addresses are uninvestigated.
  • They house animals commonly used for fur, however an investigation is needed to determine the exact purpose of these operations.
  • There are numerous other reasons furbearing animals can be held captive, including being bred for pets, roadside zoos, urine-collection operations for trapping lures, or penning operations to train hunting dogs.
  • Some of these may be facilities which are helping animals. For example, wildlife rehabilitators and sanctuaries can often be required to have the same licenses as fur farms.

Please do your research, and share anything learned with Coalition Against Fur Farms.
