What pet owners are saying about Evanger's...

I live in Montville, Northern New Jersey, approximately 30 minutes west of NYC. I just started feeding Harley Evangers recently, but have known about your company for quite a while. (I have taken a large interest in animal health and nutrition over the past 8 years and always look for the best). You are also on my vet's recommended feeding list (Dr. Marty Goldstein at Smith Ridge Veterinary Clinic)

Harley always ate raw, but has stopped. He doesn't want to eat anything other than his treats & people food, and your canned entree's make it easier for me when I can't cook for him. He has his moments...last night he DEVOURED a can of "Hunk of Beef" but wouldn't touch it this morning......he's a handful when it comes to feeding time! He has a degenerative spinal condition called "Cauda Equina" and as he declines he gets pickier and pickier...you should feel "honored" that he'll eat your food, LOL... I'm just happy to have an alternative to feed him that I'm comfortable with, and your products are, in my opinion (and in your class of foods) the best!

This tournament is hosted by the X-Fidos Flyball Team.

Flyball has actually been around since the late 1960's. It is unusual in that it is a team sport – a high-adrenaline canine relay race.

It starts with two 4-dog teams in side-by-side lanes. At the signal light (which is very much like the light that starts drag races) the first dog on each team crosses the starting line. It runs 51 feet over four jumps to a spring-loaded box. The dog must hit the box with its paws to release a tennis ball, catch it, and return with it over the four jumps. As it crosses the start line, the next dog is on its way.

The team who successfully runs all four dogs in the least amount of time wins the race. It is not uncommon for entire races to be over in less than 20 seconds!

Testimonials from Our Customers

Here's what pet owners are saying about Evanger's Pet Food...

Michele Gouveia from Griswold, Connecticut wrote:

"I was SHOCKED that the foods were actually like the pictures on the site! Usually, the photos present a vamped up image of the dog food - but yours were true to form! I opened the mackerel and was amazed to see those little fishies staring back at me! I then opened the beef stew can and it looked exactly as the stew I would make myself. I placed both bowls down and literally in less than 3 minutes, both plates were devoured! My pups looked back at me, sat and raised their paws which is the signal that they wanted more. I was floored!

"YOU ARE MY SAVIORS!

"I am THRILLED that they LOVE your foods and am equally thrilled with the quality of the meals. "

About Our Company

Evanger's Dog & Cat Food Company, one of the country's oldest natural pet food makers, prides itself on manufacturing its own label of products since 1935. Unlike other pet food companies, the owners of Evanger's, Holly and Joel Sher, personally oversee the total quality control and processing of raw materials seven days a week. Being hands-on with our produce and meat vendors, food production, and distribution ensures that every single Evanger's product stands for safety and quality.

We prefer to use free-range poultry and game meat whenever possible. Our dry dog food menu consists of Pheasant and Brown Rice, Chicken and Brown Rice, Venison, and White Fish and Sweet Potato. All of these dry dog food selections are manufactured in the Midwest, near Evanger's headquarters in Illinois.

Our products consist of fresh, natural and superior ingredients, with no additives, preservatives, artificial colors, by-products, salt, hormones or antibiotics, to ensure quality on a human-grade level. We do not use any soy, corn, or wheat products in our foods, which makes Evanger's products popular among pets with allergies and diabetes.

Many of our products are organic and Kosher certified, and made with all U.S. sourced raw materials. Unlike other pet food companies, Evanger's focuses on fresh - not frozen - meat and produce whenever possible. While this makes the manufacturing process more cumbersome, we believe that planning ahead and going the extra mile for our customers makes a world of difference. We purchase 95% of our ingredients locally from the same distributor of five-star Chicago restaurants.
