TJ O’Connor Adoption Center makes a change
To Dave’s Pet Food
The Thomas J. O’Connor Animal Control & Adoption Center has made a change in the food it feeds its cats and dogs to Dave’s Pet Food.
Executive Director, Pam Peebles said there were a number of factors prompting TJO to switch to a different food. “We were looking for a high quality food that we could feed consistently to the animals sheltered at TJO. Many come in struggling with malnutrition, intestinal parasites and other medical complications. Providing them with a steady, high quality diet is one of the first and most important steps we can take to get them on track to wellness. Staying local and communicating with a friendly business was important too.” She reached out to Dave to talk about a solution and very quickly it became apparent that Dave’s Pet Food was a perfect match. “Dave’s made it affordable for us to achieve our goal of feeding a high quality, consistent diet to the animals that call TJO their temporary home. We are also quite pleased to buy from a friendly, local business that values customer service.”
Adopters will also receive a coupon for a free 4lb bag of Dave’s Brand Dry Dog or Cat food when they bring their new furry friend home.
Dave’s Pet Food is owned and operated by David Ratner, owner of Dave’s Soda and Pet City. As a pet supply retailer, Dave knew that there was a lot of great pet food on the market, and there was a lot of affordable pet food on the market, but there was not a lot of great, affordable food. That’s why Dave made the decision to start a private label pet food for his customers. The goal when the brand was started was simple- a really great food that is nutritious and delicious at a reasonable price. A world famous nutritionist created his first formula and the rest is history. The brand continues to grow. As of today, Dave’s Pet Food is sold in more than 2,000 independent pet stores all across the USA, as well as many online sites, including the Home shopping Network.
