Pet Wants was started by Michelle Hobbs out of love and frustration. Veterinarians were unable to help relieve her dog's painful skin allergies...she discovered the national dog food brand she used was not fresh, not all-natural, and lacked complete nutrition...and was filled with undesirable ingredients and by-products. 'Chele was motivated and determined to create a better solution for all dogs and cats.

Pet Wants creates fresh and all-natural pet food and delivers it to our customers on a monthly, subscription basis...that ensures the food is fresh for the pets and that you generate consistent and ongoing revenue streams.
