Charlee Bear Products Makes Acquisition
Charlee Bear Products, owner of Charlee Bear Dog Treats, acquired Hound & Gatos. Hound & Gatos is a nationally distributed line of canned pet food known for introducing the Paleolithic diet to dogs and cats.
“At Charlee Bear, our mission is to improve the health and nutrition of pets through simple, natural ingredients one small bite at a time,” said Peter Gottsacker, owner of Charlee Bear Products. “Our passion for quality pet products and ingredients was a natural fit with Hound & Gatos, and we are pleased to welcome this brand into the Charlee Bear Products family.”
The Hound & Gatos line is designed to cater to the carnivorous instincts of dogs and cats with simple food that's full of nutrition. The only ingredients in the canned recipes are real meat, vitamins and minerals.
“Our success at building a significant national presence for Charlee Bear has empowered us to further expand into animal nutrition,” said Gottsacker. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this growing industry and look forward to further building our company’s presence with current and future brands.”
Charlee Bear Products already started the process of hiring additional management and sales support for the Hound & Gatos brand, now based in Wisconsin. The company also plans on refreshing the branding in the coming months.
