Pet-caring Products Since 1945
Family owned and operated for over 70 years, Van Ness has been a leader in providing quality, pet-caring products that fit the needs of pets and provide a great value for you, the pet parent.
Every Van Ness product is designed to meet our own industry leading quality standard we call “Pureness.” Pureness stands for our superior benchmarks for pure quality, pure functionality, pure style and pure safety.
As an organization, Van Ness extends the concept of Pureness through our unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship, animal welfare and community involvement..
At Van Ness we are proud to carry the “Made in the USA” badge on over 95% of our pet products and have stood behind that promise for more than 70 years. As a family-owned business, we take pride in fostering and supporting our local communities through job opportunities and outreach at a grass-roots level.
Our dactories are based in New Jersey and Arkansas, and the individuals on our US-based teams each play an important role in helping Van Ness fulfill on its commitment to our customers of providing the highest quality pet products at competitive prices. Not only are just about all of our products Made in the USA but all of the materials we use are traceable back to the source and made only with FDA approved materials.
Something most consumers may not be aware of regarding the pet product industry is that it is not regulated by a standardized set of laws and requirements from a government agency such as the FDA. This is a surprise to many because our pets are a part of the family and here at Van Ness we believe they deserve safe, high-quality products. And, it’s important to remember that it’s not just your pets who come into contact with pet products every day – it’s you and your family.
This is why at Van Ness we have made the commitment to ensure all of our products are manufactured with the highest standards in place, even if our competitors don’t. We use only FDA approved materials and everything we put into our products is traceable back to the source. That means we know exactly where our materials are coming from and can ensure they are safe for your pets and your family.
Van Ness is also committed to creating environmentally friendly products wherever possible. For instance, all of our cat pan liners are made using 65% recycled plastic for drawstring models or 100% recycled plastic for basic and sifting models.
When you purchase a Van Ness product you can rest assured that the health and quality of life for your pet and your family are our first priority.
