Animal Supply Company (ASC), a pet food and supplies distribution, announced the acquisition of Bark to Basics, a family-owned business serving independent retailers, day care/kennels, vet hospitals and groomers in six states (Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana) with two distribution centers in Kansas City (Olathe) and Houston.

“Bark to Basics is a great addition to the ASC family, as it furthers our ability to serve our existing customers, welcome new customers, and allow ASC to provide a key brand, Champion Petfoods, makers of ORIJEN and ACANA Dog and Cat Foods, to the Midwest and Texas,” said Don McIntyre, chief executive officer of ASC. “This strategic acquisition also brings additional sales resources to support our delivery of Champion to customers and continue our commitment to providing exceptional service.”

With the missions of both companies focused on improving the lives of cats and dogs, promoting a world where pets are happy, healthy and safe, the two companies also share an alignment of values focused on: honesty (integrity), enthusiasm (passion), success (results oriented).

“This is an exciting opportunity for two great companies,” said Terry Garberg, owner of Bark to Basics. “Bark to Basics and ASC both share an unwavering commitment to service, a passion for pets and a focus on strong relationships with both customers and vendors.”
