Evan and Kara Canfield, the local owners and operators of Pet Wants Colorado Springs, are pleased to announce that Pet Wants is now available at the Fort Carson Exchange.

Pet Wants’ carefully developed pet food is slow-cooked in small batches with fresh, high-quality ingredients once per month, so every kibble is guaranteed to be fresh and packed with nutrition. In addition to being available at the Fort Carson Exchange kiosk, Pet Wants Colorado Springs will continue to offer free, personal delivery to all of greater Colorado Springs from the top of Pikes Peak to the edges of the eastern plains.

“We were getting quite a few requests to deliver Pet Wants to people living on base, but, with all the security checkpoints, delivering on base was a logistical challenge. When we approached the Army and Air Force Exchange Service about having a kiosk at the Fort Carson Exchange, they were excited about bringing us in. They said they’d never had a pet food company like ours ask to sell on base, so the only pet food available is what you’d find at a grocery store,” Evan said. “We’re excited about providing our service members and their families with a better, fresher, local pet food option.”

In addition to being made fresh monthly, Pet Wants only sources 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. Pet Wants Colorado Springs – which offers multiple blends of dog food and cat food – also offers healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more.

Evan and Kara are originally from the Cincinnati area, where Pet Wants was founded. They had visited the original store in Findlay Market and knew the founder, Michele Hobbs. Kara, a nurse, and Evan, a former firefighter, had been working in major manufacturing, but they had been doing a lot of research into pet food since adopting their five-year-old rescue dog, Maya.

“I was watching a Saturday morning show about animal rescues and it made me think about that original Pet Wants store. I asked Kara what she thought about seeing if we could open our own Pet Wants here in Colorado Springs and the rest is history,” Evan said. “We have been dog people for our entire lives and our furry friends are our family. We feel it’s only right to give back to our pets as selflessly as they do for us. Pet Wants gives us the opportunity to help provide pet families with the nutrition needed for happy and healthy lives.”

The couple officially opened Pet Wants Colorado Springs in the summer of 2017. Service at Fort Carson started Monday, March 5, 2018.

“I love Pet Wants because the company really does care about pets. Pet Wants isn’t some big retailer that only cares about the bottom line. We are here to make it easy to get high-quality food but also to answer your questions, provide excellent customer service and to work with you to improve the health and well-being of your pets through nutritious food,” Evan added.

About Pet Wants: Pet Wants was started by Michele Hobbs out of love for her pets and frustration. Veterinarians were unable to help relieve her dog’s painful skin allergies. After doing much research, Michele discovered the national dog food brand she trusted was not fresh and lacked sufficient nutrition and, when pet food sits in warehouses and store shelves for months and months, it loses even more nutritional value. She was committed to developing a better solution for all dogs and cats. Pet Wants food is exclusively crafted – fresh, healthy, and slow-cooked with no sugar added, no fillers, and no animal by-products. Pet Wants sources only the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice, and other ingredients. Fresh ingredients make for better food, which translates into better health for pets. And, since Pet Wants never use corn, wheat, soy or dyes, the common pet health problems associated with these ingredients are no longer worries. Pet Wants fresh food is conveniently delivered to the customer within weeks of production, not months. You can learn more at http://www.PetWants.com.
