Finding the right food for your pets can be tough. At Pet Wants, we are focused on bringing you fresh, small-batch, slow-cooked food with ingredients that are designed to positively impact your pets. I’m Harold Blake and my wife, Linda Blake, and I opened Pet Wants Central Vermont because we saw an opportunity to make a positive impact and honor the lives of our family members.
The inspiration to open this business started when I lost my mom to COVID-19 and my sister to cancer. They both loved animals and did quite a bit of volunteering during their lives. As I was thinking about a way to continue their legacy, we found Pet Wants. Of course they aren’t the only ones to love pets – Linda and I have rescued a number of abandoned animals, adopted cats and even raised wild fish. We currently have a black cat named Hope and a chocolate lab named Joy.
Linda and I have been married for almost 45 years and we’ve lived in Central Vermont for the last 25 years. While I’ve been working with individuals with developmental disabilities and coaching Central Vermont Special Olympics, Linda has been working at Vermont’s busiest restaurant. In addition to helping pets live longer, healthier lives, we are excited to be part of this community in a new way as small business owners.
We offer free, personal delivery throughout Central Vermont, especially Washington and Chittenden counties, including the communities of Barre, Montpelier, Burlington, Stowe, Berlin and the surrounding areas. We look forward to meeting you!
