Jeffers was founded in 1975 by Dr. Keith Jeffers, PhD, in the basement of his ranch home. He began his journey as an advisor for local livestock owners and soon realized that his customers needed a reliable and more cost efficient source for their supplies. Dr. Jeffers began to go door-to-door to establish a customer base, and soon had enough customers to start the very first Jeffers Catalog. "Dr. J" spent countless nights with his wife Dorothy and daughters, Mary and Ruth hand delivering these catalogs. Jeffers now has three catalogs distributed to customers every change of season. The catalogs are for Pet Supplies, Equine Supplies, and Livestock Supplies.
In 1999, Jeffers ventured into the online world with JeffersPet.com and quickly became popular with customers who were previously buying through the catalog. Since '99, the website has been continuously improved with customer feedback playing a key role in these changes. Currently, Jeffers operates an integrated eCommerce site, covering each of the 3 catalogs with a unified cart, plus a Facebook page for each catalog, and a blog full of helpful articles and tips.
Our most recent upgrade to the site added on site customer product reviews, personalized wish list capabilities, viewable order history, and online wholesale pricing (for our wholesale accounts). We also upgraded our affiliate program at the same time (Fall of 2010) to include higher commissions, more frequent payouts, and 45-day cookie duration.
All orders from Jeffers are filled from our 120,000 square foot warehouse (in Dothan). Most orders ship the same day they are ordered and those within the Continental US generally arrive within one week. If you are local to the area, you may stop in our retail store, operated right on site, which makes about 90% of our products available for pickup.
