A new local pet food and supply company has just launched in North Raleigh. Locally owned and operated by Ron and Rachel Whidby, along with their daughter and son-in-law Michelle and Joshua Hurley, Pet Wants North Raleigh offers free, personal delivery to all of North Raleigh.

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 North Raleigh has multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more. Pet Wants North Raleigh offers convenient, free, personal delivery to the entire North Raleigh area and the family is looking to open a brick and mortar store in early 2019.

The Whidbys and the Hurleys are experienced business owners and they each bring different strengths to the team – from back office and operational experience to marketing and sales. They were drawn to Pet Wants when Rachel started looking for a flexible opportunity that would allow them to work with animals.

“We looked at a variety of options for more than a year and nothing spoke to us. When we found Pet Wants, we realized it was exactly what we’d be looking for,” Ron said. “People are increasingly more aware of what they are putting into their own bodies and the importance of nutrition for humans, so we think the timing is right to start talking about nutrition when it comes to our pets. We’re looking forward to helping people understand what is – and what isn’t – in pet food.”

Pet Wants has a 100-percent, money-back guarantee on the freshness and quality of the food and the company 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.

“The world of pet food can be complicated so, for us, I think the most exciting part about this business is having the opportunity to talk to people in our community about animal nutrition and educate them about what’s in the food they can buy, especially in comparison to our products. We want to make sure people have all the information so they can make the right decision for their own family,” Michelle said.

Ron and Rachel are long-time Raleigh residents and Michelle and Joshua were both born and raised in the Raleigh area. Ron and Rachel have a 7-year-old coonhound named Summer and a grand-dog named Bell, who is a 9-year-old lab/hound mix. Michelle and Joshua have a miniature dachshund named Bandit. All of their dogs are rescues.

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, not all natural, 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. Their food is exclusively crafted. It’s fresh, healthy and slow-cooked with no sugar added, no fillers and no animal by-products. They source only the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice, and other ingredients. Fresh ingredients make for better food… and better health for pets. And since they never use corn, wheat, soy or dyes, the common pet health problems associated with these ingredients are no longer worries. Their fresh food is conveniently delivered to the customer within weeks of production, not months. Roughly half of Pet Wants products are sold through their store and half through their convenient, home-delivery program. You can learn more at http://www.PetWants.com.
