Meet the Owners
I am Rosaline Hansen, a self-proclaimed crazy dog mom and the owner of Pet Wants Newton. My dogs play a huge role in my life and in making me happy every day. I launched this business because Pet Wants gives me a chance to really help fellow pet parents give their animals longer, healthier, happier lives.
I am a Massachusetts native and, for 15 years before Pet Wants, I worked in sales and marketing in the wine and spirits industry before my adoration for dogs drew me away. I absolutely love animals and my husband, Randy, and I loved the idea of having a family business, which led us to Pet Wants.
Randy and I have two rescue pups – a Golden/Lab mix (and mommy’s girl) named Luna and a Boxer/Lab mix (and daddy’s boy) named Loial. I have had dogs for most of my life and am a long-time donor to both the ASPCA and the Humane Society.
When we were thinking about opening Pet Wants, we got a few samples of the food. Both of my dogs absolutely loved it and Luna would no longer eat her old food without some Pet Wants sprinkled in. I had to horde the kibble until I could get more! I am thrilled to be able to bring such a great offering of products to the Greater Boston area through Pet Wants Newton. I can’t wait to meet you and your furry family members!
