About Us | Fresh & Nutritious Pet Food | Pet Wants OC South, CA

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 Owner

Pet nutrition can be confusing, and with so much marketing out there it’s hard to know which products are best for your individual pet. I’m Shannon Weel, the local owner of Pet Wants OC South, and I opened this business because I’m passionate about the health and happiness of animals. Pet Wants OC South allows me to provide the freshest, most nourishing pet food to the pets in my community so they can live long, healthy lives. There’s nothing else like Pet Wants on the market.

Pet Wants’ specially-crafted pet food formulas are made in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients enhanced with vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced diet in every bowl. Pet Wants OC South offers multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax, and more. Pet Wants OC South offers free, personal delivery to Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, Foothill Ranch, and the surrounding areas.

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

Caring for Our Furry Families

Working with Pet Wants often starts with education – I want to get to know your pets and their individual needs so I can help you find the products that might work best for you and your family. Pet Wants is also different because of the freshness of our food. Pet Wants food is made fresh and in small batches here in the United States and many of our products are homemade. Pet Wants has a 100-percent, money-back guarantee on the freshness and quality of our food and 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 Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy, or dyes, which makes the food great for animals with allergies. We also offer multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as a healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax, and more.

My Inspiration

I’m a single mom with two kids – Lily and North – and three animals, our dog Roxy and our cats, Piper and Robin. I was always interested in owning my own business, but I knew it had to be something I would be passionate about and that my family could be part of too. When I found Pet Wants, it hit all the marks: it was about animals, nutrition, and community involvement while also being flexible, exciting, and family-focused. My animals love Pet Wants and I’m excited to meet you and your pets so we can work together to find the products that will work best.

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.
