Jeremy Horton & Michael Schirmer Bring Pet Wants to San Francisco

Pet Wants’ specially-crafted pet food formulas are made in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients. Pet Wants SF offers convenient, free, personal delivery to the entire San Francisco Area.

Long-time friends and pet parents Jeremy Horton and Michael Schirmer are pleased to announce the launch of their new pet food and supply business, Pet Wants SF.

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 SF 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 SF offers convenient, free, personal delivery to the entire San Francisco Area.

“There are a lot of options in the pet food industry, but none of them are like Pet Wants. I think people genuinely want the best for their pets and diet is a huge part of that. Pet Wants offers people a great opportunity to have healthier, happier pets by feeding them a whole food that’s conveniently delivered,” Schirmer said.

Horton is originally from Alabama and has lived in San Francisco for the last 9 years. He served in Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm with the 109 Evac. Hospital and has been a nurse for the last 21 years, including three years as a travel nurse. He has a 6-year-old Shih Tzu named Gracie.

Schirmer, who has owned a dog walking business for the last 10 years, moved to San Diego in 1986 and then to San Francisco in 1995. He’s originally from Indianapolis and is a casual marathon runner and cyclist. Michael has completed two AIDS LifeCycles and has an 11-year-old Cattle Dog named Harper.

Horton and Schirmer found Pet Wants when Horton was looking for a change.

“I’ve spent my career in nursing and I was ready for a change. I still wanted to do something that could make a difference for people – and now their pets – and when I found Pet Wants, it seemed like a perfect fit. I asked Michael if he was interested in opening the business with me and the rest is history,” Horton said. “Pet Wants is different because our food is natural, high-quality, limited ingredient, slow cooked, fresh and convenient and our treats are nutritious.”

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.

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.
