Members of the Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce joined the Schrock family for a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony April 12 for Beaverdam Pet Food at 12933 Sussex Highway in Greenwood.
Working daily with animal nutrition, feeds, and supplements for nearly 30 years, founder Truman Schrock became concerned about the pet food industry. He realized that most people had no idea what ingredients and additives were going into their pet food and began a dream that would one day become Beaverdam Pet Food.
Beaverdam was founded in 2003, from the home of Truman and his wife Mary in Greenwood. They continue to operate in Greenwood and deliver Beaverdam products to the Mid-Atlantic Region, as well as distributing to Chewy.com. They will soon be distributing to Amazon.
Beaverdam has four lines of dog food: HiEnergy, HiProtein, Skippers Choice and Eli’s Select, as well as a cat food: Sheila’s Pick. It offers three varieties of dog cookies: peanut butter, cheddar cheese and oatmeal cinnamon, all of which are human grade. Also offered are 18 different bones and chews that are all sourced in the United States and smoked with no added preservatives.
Through the many years of business, Beaverdam and the Schrock family have been an ongoing support to their pet community as well as the humans that love them. They participate in fundraising events, with both financial contributions and educational presence. They are also happy to give samples of their products, and to see if a diet change can help someone’s pets.
