Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Company, Inc., was founded by Fred Evanger in 1935 to make the finest natural dog food available. Having raised champion Great Danes, Fred Evanger believed that a dog’s health was fully dependent upon their diet, which should include a wholesome nutritious dog food without preservatives or harmful additives. Fred Evanger worked hard at fulfilling this dream, and went as far as building his own canning factory at his kennels. We know now, nearly 70 years later, the value that was in the dream of building the worlds finest pet foods, Evanger’s.
Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Company is as innovative and creative today as we were when we began nearly 70 years ago. We have great respect in knowing that Mr. Evanger was a man ahead of his time. Today, the world knows and understands that GOLD stands for value, purity, and quality. Fred Evanger certainly accomplished his goals set back in 1935.
Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food was a success story right away. As word spread of the quality of the ingredients and how the manufacturing process was handled, the Evanger’s brand went first as a regional brand, then national. Breeders of show and sports dogs, veterinarians, and other professionals showed a real support for the brand. Evanger’s has also been a huge supporter of the independent marketplace.
Fred Evanger would be proud that, seventy-six years later, Evanger’s is still manufactured on the original site. Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food follows the same family traditions that Mr. Evanger first started. Quality delicious meals for dogs and cats, made in the family way, hand-packed.
As innovative today as when the company began, Evanger’s was the first pet food company to hand pack whole pieces of fresh meat and fresh vegetables into the can. This is the new trend in pet food we like to call “People Food for Pets.”
Still family-owned-and-operated, Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Company has grown into a worldwide success. Available at independent retailers close to you.
