Meet the Owners

How much thought have you given to the food you’re feeding your pets? Chances are, unless your pet has special needs, you’ve just been picking up the same bag of food at the grocery for years without looking at the label. Many of the top pet food brands are packed with fillers and even those who focus on quality ingredients, often have bags of food sitting the shelves for months or even years.

At Pet Wants, our food has been slow-cooked with fresh, all-natural ingredients and our distributor makes the dog and cat food in small batches once per month so every kibble is guaranteed to be fresh and packed with nutrition. For animals with special needs, gluten-free and grain-free options are also available. To make it even more convenient, you can either stop by our store at 1118 South Fort Thomas Ave., Fort Thomas, KY 41075 (combined with Dirty Hairy’s Dog Spa) or have the food delivered to your door. 

We are Lisa Kelly and Susan Cramer and we opened this business because we wanted to bring that high quality, convenient pet food option to our community. We’ve been best friends for more than a decade and we saw the positive impact of Pet Wants in our own lives. Lisa, who also owns Dirty Hairy’s Dog Spa, saw great improvements in the allergies, skin, coat and digestive systems of her clients’ pets. Susan fed Pet Wants to her elderly cat who had gotten skinny, lost his fur and in just a few short weeks, saw him acting like an entirely different – and healthier – cat.

We both have a passion for animals and a desire to be business owners so when we found out Pet Wants was offering franchises, we were immediately on board. Pet Wants can have a dramatic impact on the lives of animals and we’re excited to be able to offer it right here in Northern Kentucky. Besides, we can’t think of a better career than to hang out with pets and their owners all day!

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.
