Iams Partners With Leading Anti-Hunting Organization
From the USSA

The Iams Company, maker of Iams and Eukanuba pet foods, has joined forces with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the nation's largest anti-hunting organization.
The company is helping sponsor the Pet Fest America tour, a series of animal shows in major metropolitan areas, nationwide. The shows were developed by HSUS. They debuted in early 2003 and will continue through April 2004.

"Sportsmen, and in particular sporting dog owners, understand the threat HSUS poses to hunting, field trialing and other activities," said Bud Pidgeon, president of the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance. "Iams has fallen into the same trap as some other businesses and it needs to be educated."

Companies such as General Mills, Accor Hotels, Pet Safe, Sears, and Ace Hardware ended relationships with HSUS after thousands of sportsmen levied strong protest.

"The Pet Fests are basically pet owner education and welfare events and also serve to educate and entertain consumers," Kelly Vanasse, Iams associate director of external affairs told the Alliance. "We also sponsor Ducks Unlimited, AKC and other events. We try to strike a balance."

Iams clearly doesn't understand how sportsmen will view its support for the nation's largest anti-hunting organization.

"We are currently fighting HSUS attempts to ban dove hunting in Wisconsin, bear hunting in Maine and Alaska, and other anti-hunting threats around the country," said Pidgeon. "Iams is adding legitimacy to HSUS's efforts."

The National Animal Interest Alliance was among those who alerted the Alliance of the issue.

Take Action! Sportsmen across the nation should contact Iams and educate them about HSUS's goals to end hunting, fishing, trapping and other forms of animal use. Contact President Jeffery P. Ansell, The Iams Company, 7250 Poe Ave., Dayton, OH 45414. Phone (937) 898-7387. Fax (

A guy I know got a letter from them last week & they have canceled their partnership with HSUS.
I can't post here but if you want to read it you can on another website
go to then go to the forum section & look for it under the Upland hunting & dog training forum
Interesting reading, they must be starting to take a hit in the wallet, to bad Proctor & Gamble their parent company dosen't see it that way.

(Columbus) - A leading dog food manufacturer has ended an event sponsorship of the largest anti-hunting group in the country.  The announcement came in the wake of a storm of protests from sportsmen and sportsmenís groups

click the above link and read the story.  looks like the good guy can make his voice heard once in awhile.

that is hilarious that they would even think of sponsering the event seeing as they lay claim that with Eukanuba your dog will find more coveys per year than with the leading competitor's food.

Someone in their PR dept probably is looking for a new job right now. Way to go on helping them figure out their mistake.

Speaking of their wallets hurting....have you priced their food?

Don't know if it is true or not, but I was told by a dog breeder that Iams was bought by Purina and the quality is not what it used to be.  I now feed Science Diet to my 10 week old Chocolate and to his 10 year old grandfather, and they love it.
