Meet The Owner
People are increasingly concerned about their own health and the food they are eating, so it’s the perfect time to talk about making sure our pets are getting the nutrition they need too! I’m Maren Hildum, the local owner of Pet Wants Beaverton, and I launched Pet Wants after seeing the improvement the food made on the pets in my own life.
When we switched our cats to Pet Wants’ food, the difference was obvious, especially in our geriatric cat. We thought she was at the end of her life, but after switching to Pet Wants, she ate consistently, gained weight and her digestive issues improved. Seeing the improvement in her quality of life – and thinking about my dog, Denali, who had skin and anxiety issues and has since passed away – I wondered if the other animals in my life could have benefitted from Pet Wants. This inspired me to be an advocate for pet nutrition and do what I can to improve the quality of life for our companion pets by opening Pet Wants Beaverton.
I grew up in Hillsboro, went to Hillsboro High School and met my husband, Ryan, at Oregon State University. With our first born I left the corporate world to raise my family and I now serve in local leadership with Classical Conversations. Our family has one older cat and we recently adopted two kittens from the Cat Adoption Team in Sherwood.
Finding the right pet food can be challenging, but once you find the best option for your individual pets, switching is easy. I’m excited to be in a position to help pets in this community by providing small batch, high-quality, fresh food through Pet Wants and being a source of information as you work toward finding the best option for your individual pets.
