No website for this.

Did a search for the Premium Pet Treats and found this under ph# 712-702-0197: Premium Pet Health (same address) and Selective Petfood Services Inc. (same address) / no web site

On another site this ph #came up 712-255-2545 with name Premium Pet Health (same address) / no web site

Then an actual website came up when I search the 255-2545 ph# and it is: http://www.heritagepork.com Could this be owned by same people and might it be where the pork is sourced from in their foods?

It's possible they are all owned by Smithfield:

Here's something about a Smithfield rendering plant in VA:

http://hamptonroads.com/2010/01/smithfield-foods-lay-fewer-employees-expected

Hampton Roads.com January 7, 2010

"Smithfield Foods Inc., which said last year that it would lay off 340 workers when it closes its Smithfield Packing Co. South plant, will lay off fewer than 30, a Smithfield executive said today.

"The pork processor and producer averted most of the proposed layoffs by not filling some positions that came open at the plant last year through attrition and by filling others with temporary workers, said Jeff Gough, Smithfield’s vice president of human resources.

"The South plant, “production-wise, should be dark by the end of February,” he said.

"But nearly 47 full-time employees -- 31 truck drivers and 16 others -- will remain at the rendering facility behind the South plant, Gough said. That unit – which processes after-products such as blood and bones for use in pet food and other products – will continue to be used by the North plant."
