About Us:

It's been more than 70 years since George "Dad” Lang decided to try his hand at creating a homemade dog food recipe in his hometown of Meadville, PA. Commercial dog food was a luxury in Depression-era 1933, and young George's Springer had just given birth to eleven puppies.

Using a cereal product his father sold called, "Dad's Health Wheat,” George combined the cereal with meat meal in an old peanut roaster. The result was a biscuit his dogs loved and thrived on eating. Soon pet owners from all over parts of NW Pennsylvania and Ohio were asking for it.

What has since become DAD'S Pet Care is now a respected pet food manufacturer ߣ stilled based in Meadville ߣ with distribution in 24 states and 50 U.S. markets. The fourth and fifth generations of the Lang family continue to own and operate the company from a multi-plant complex in Meadville employing more than 200 workers.

DAD'S has the distinction of being the oldest pet food company in the U.S. still operating under the same name and ownership. Most importantly, the family remains committed to George Lang's original legacy of combining high-quality ingredients into great-tasting, nutritious pet foods that are a favorite among champion breeders and family pet owners.

DAD'S operates three plants at its manufacturing facility in Meadville. Each operates utilizing the latest technology in computerized batching systems, and each has earned a "Superior” rating ߣ the same process used for human food manufacturing facilities ߣ from a third party inspection agency.

DAD'S manages an extensive research and development department devoted exclusively to pet nutrition and care. DAD'S offers consumers a full line of pet food products including premium and super premium dog biscuits, soft and chewy dog and cat treats, dental care dog bones and dry food products for dogs and cats.

DAD'S maintains solid, longstanding relationships with suppliers. All ingredients are purchased directly from suppliers, who are required to sign affidavits attesting to ingredient safety and quality. Meanwhile, inspectors accept only ingredients that meet DAD'S stringent quality control specifications, are never altered, and never use low-cost substitutes.

DAD'S also sponsors an animal shelter assistance program call Have-A-Heart. The program raises funds through UPC proof-of-purchase labels collected by consumers. The UPC symbols are mailed to participating shelters in exchange for a cash donation from DAD'S Pet Care.
