About Us | Fresh & Nutritious Pet Food | Pet Wants Fort Wayne, IN

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

I’m Greg Hering and I own Pet Wants Fort Wayne with my wife, Connie. We understand that you want to feed your pet high-quality food, but we also know you’re busy. We offer free, personal delivery to the greater Fort Wayne area, including Roanoke, Laotto and the I-469 corridor. If you live outside our delivery area, contact us to inquire about delivery or shipping for a reasonable fee.

I moved to Northwest Indiana in 2009 after building my business career at my family’s grain elevator and feed mill in Southern Illinois, serving the local farming community. Connie and I are now pet parents to a Leonberger named Nash and two rescue kitties, Sunny and Rascal. Connie and I put roots down in Fort Wayne together because we love this area.

I saw the need for Pet Wants philosophy in Fort Wayne. People want to know where their food comes from – they want to know it is high quality, locally-sourced, and healthy – and they want the best for their pets too. We believe Pet Wants is a perfect combination of my prior background, Fort Wayne’s love of pets and our desire to be involved in the community.

"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 Mission

Pet Wants exists to improve the nutrition, health, vitality, and well-being of pets. We make it easy for pet parents to provide the most nutritious food available to the pets they love. Our Mission is both noble…and necessary. Join us in this pet food revolution for the pets we love.

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.
