Meet the Owners

About Pet Wants Chicago NorthWhen you buy pet food at the pet store, grocery store, or big box store, how do you decide the best option for your animals? Do you know what’s in the bag you’re taking home – or how long that bag has been sitting on the shelf – before you give it to your pet? Navigating the world of pet food can seem complicated, but it doesn’t have to be.

My name is Ewa and my husband Chuck and I own your local Pet Wants business. We have always had a pet in our lives and now together we provide a home for three rescue dogs. We value the importance of great nutrition and exercise in our own lives, so we want to provide that for our pets too. In researching pet foods, we decided that the Pet Wants food was a good match for Roscoe, Goliath, and Lucky.

After having our pets on the diet of Pet Wants, we became interested in sharing these wonderful products with other pet owners. Combining our love for animals and our interest in proper nutrition is what led us to open Pet Wants North Chicago.

When you buy Pet Wants, you’re not just picking a bag up off a shelf. Chuck and I will be available to explain the food options we have available and what might work best for your pet. Our personal touch along with our fresh, quality food, and our free delivery will make you a happy pet owner of a healthy and happy pet.

Pet Wants’ carefully developed proprietary pet food is slow-cooked with fresh, all-natural ingredients, and made once a month to ensure that every kibble is fresh and packed with nutrition. Only the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice, and other ingredients available are used. There is no sugar added, no fillers, and no animal by-products. Plus, since Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy, or dyes, the food is a great fit for pets with allergies.

Our animals, like yours, are a part of our family and a huge part of our lives. We provide a healthy and delicious diet for them, which ensures a better life. We are looking forward to providing this same opportunity to you, the pet owners in our community, and for your pets. Pet Wants food gives us this chance. Making pets healthier and happier is our passion. Contact us today and let us send you a sample for your favorite companion.

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.

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 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.
