About Us | Fresh & Nutritious Pet Food | Pet Wants Scottsdale, AZ

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.

About Us

Keeping your pets happy and healthy, for as long as possible, is what all pet families want, but finding the right food can be a challenge. I am Robert Nilson and my mom, Susan Cooper, and I launched Pet Wants South Scottsdale because we saw an opportunity to provide pets with fresh, quality pet food and products, with the convenience of free, personal delivery.

When I moved from Los Angeles to Scottsdale, my dog’s skin got extremely dry and flaky with the change in humidity. When I switched her to Pet Wants food, it was a complete turnaround. She is also a picky eater, and she didn’t even want her old food anymore.

Meanwhile, I was looking for a new opportunity to get out of sales management, and my mom was looking for a new investment opportunity. When we researched the Pet Wants franchise, combined with my dog’s experience, we realized it was a perfect combination of our passions for health and animals. Pet Wants’ focus on freshness, quality and convenience truly resonates with us, and we think it will resonate with our community as well.

Pet Wants South Scottsdale is a mobile business, and we deliver to Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Cave Creek, Greater Phoenix and the surrounding areas. We look forward to meeting you and helping you choose the best products for your pets!

"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.

How Are Pet Wants Products Different?

It’s simple. Freshness is the key to good nutrition. We provide our proprietary pet food formula that has been carefully developed over the years and deliver to your home to ensure freshness. Your pets will appreciate a healthy, complete and balanced pet food made from fresh, all-natural ingredients. Since our food is slow-cooked to lock in nutrients and is made in frequent, small batches, we deliver the fresh and highly nutritional food to our customers within weeks, not months, of being made. Our customers appreciate the convenience of our auto-delivery system that they can modify prior to each delivery. This ensures that the best possible food is delivered when they need and only how much they need – delivered right to their door – for the same price as most premium commercial pet foods.
