Response to Seizure of 170 Samoyeds in Worth County, Iowa

The Samoyed Club of America (SCA) and The Samoyed Club of Iowa have been gravely concerned by the inhumane commercial breeding facility in Worth County. Both organizations wish to express their gratitude to the Worth County Sheriff’s Office, the Humane Society of North Iowa and the ASPCA for taking action to remove these dogs from these horrific conditions.

SCA affiliated Samoyed Rescue organizations across the country have been partnering with The Humane Society of North Iowa since January of 2018 in assisting with voluntarily surrendered Samoyed dogs released from this commercial breeding facility.  As a result, over 136 Samoyeds were saved with over 83 finding their permanent homes through our Samoyed rescue affiliates prior to this recent seizure of animals.

Our members strive to practice responsible breeding and ownership. We encourage any potential owners to do their research on the Samoyed breed. This would include learning about the specific qualities & challenges of Samoyeds and meeting breeders in their environment who demonstrate full transparency of their breeding program. More information on the Samoyed Rescue organization near you that are assisting with this effort or in finding a responsible Samoyed breeder can be found on the Samoyed Club of America website ( ). We will continue to assist the ASPCA, our rescue affiliates and the Humane Society of North Iowa in any way possible in finding forever loving homes.

Thank You,
