Meet The Owners
Finding the right pet food for your dog or cat can be challenging, especially if they are dealing with digestive issues or overall health problems. I know what it’s like because our Shar-Pei, Moose, has Familial Shar-Pei Fever, a genetic condition. When our vet told us Moose would probably only live 3 years – but definitely no longer than 6 years – we started looking for ways to improve his life. That’s when we found Pet Wants.
I’m Lauren Northcraft and I own this business with my husband, Andrew Northcraft. We have three kids and three dogs – Moose, a Dutch Shepherd named Monroe, and a Pitbull mix named Beau. Andrew and I are both Ohio natives and we met at Xavier University in Cincinnati. After we got Moose’s diagnosis and found Pet Wants (which had just opened in Findlay Market), Andrew, who was in the entrepreneurship program at Xavier, started working as the company’s first intern. Within a couple of weeks, Andrew was moving palettes of food and making deliveries. We have been part of the Pet Wants family ever since.
