About Us | Fresh & Nutritious Pet Food | Pet Wants Hamilton, OH

Who is Pet Wants?

We started with the goal of improving the health and well-being of our own pets. Now, we hope to use what we have learned to promote nutrition and vitality in pets across the country.

Meet The Owners

Hi, and welcome to Pet Wants Hamilton. We’re Chris and Rachel. Together, we opened our store because we want to make it easy for you to understand what is in your pets’ food and to ensure you have access to a better option. Our proprietary pet food is slow-cooked in small batches with fresh, all-natural ingredients every 30 days. Every kibble is guaranteed to be fresh and packed with nutrition. There is nothing else like it on the market. In addition to being made fresh, we only source the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice, and other ingredients available. There’s no sugar added, no fillers, and no animal by-products, and since we never use corn, wheat, soy, or dyes, the food is a great fit for pets with allergies. Surprisingly affordable, it’s a convenient, flexible option for many families.

"As pet parents, we cherish our four-legged companions as members of our family."

Caring for Our Furry Family

When you think of your pet, what brings you joy? Bright eyes? Shiny, soft coat? Tail wagging? Snuggle time? All of these things, and more, are reflective of our pets’ health. It all starts with fresh, nutritious ingredients. Food is medicine and like us, what our pets eat impacts their lives. When store shelves are filled with bags that all basically look the same, it can be confusing trying to decide what food is best. We often rely on marketing campaigns to help inform us. But how are you to trust the quality of the ingredients beyond the assumption that higher prices equate to better food? That a playful puppy in a commercial is really eating fresh, nutrient-rich kibble?

We intend to deliver on more than just a promise of fresh, high-quality food – we will build a community based on education and awareness around the ingredients our pets eat.

Our Inspiration

We were inspired by our faith and deep appreciation for animals and the great outdoors to open this store for you. We are passionate about helping your pets live full, healthy lives, so they can continue brining joy to you and your family. Our pets are amazing and they impact our own quality of life. We are proud of the ingredients we use and we are excited to share it with you, our neighbors.

Owning this business fulfills our desire to help make our community an even better place, to support local initiatives, our first responders, and our parks. As active community outreach volunteers, we are committed helping local rescues and humane societies by offering our high-quality pet food to the animals in their care. We intend to continue these compassionate efforts by helping vulnerable children, women, and families.

What's Wrong with Name Brand Foods?

Most commercial pet food is manufactured in mass quantities and sent to a series of distribution warehouses before finally making it onto the shelf at your local store. There it sits…possibly for up to 6-8 months before it’s purchased for consumption. Because pet food loses its nutritional value over time, pets can ultimately end up eating a diet that’s low in nutrition and can ultimately lead to unnecessary sickness, disease and even a shortened life.

How Pet Wants Got Started

As pet parents know, a pet’s diet is very important. Pet Wants was created in 2010 after the owner of Pet Wants noticed some serious health issues with her beloved pets. Problems began to appear and quickly worsened. Many unsuccessful trips to the veterinarian’s office and several thousands of dollars later, the owner decided to take matters into her own hands. She discovered the problem was the low nutritional value of the food she was feeding her pets. In simple terms, the pets weren’t getting enough of the right nutrients necessary for a healthy life. As a pet parent who cared deeply about her pet’s welfare, she felt terrible — like she had let down a family member. She was shocked to learn that the nationally recognized premium brand food she trusted for her pets lost most of its nutritional value from sitting too long in warehouses, and on store shelves….she decided there had to be a better way.

How Are Pet Wants Products Different?

It’s simple. Freshness is the key to good nutrition. We provide our proprietary pet food formula that has been carefully developed over the years and deliver to your home to ensure freshness. Your pets will appreciate a healthy, complete and balanced pet food made from fresh, all-natural ingredients. Since our food is slow-cooked to lock in nutrients and is made in frequent, small batches, we deliver the fresh and highly nutritional food to our customers within weeks, not months, of being made. Our customers appreciate the convenience of our auto-delivery system that they can modify prior to each delivery. This ensures that the best possible food is delivered when they need and only how much they need – delivered right to their door – for the same price as most premium commercial pet foods.
