Othman Fadeel Launches Pet Wants of North Orange County
Othman Fadeel understands the importance of eating healthy, both for himself and his cat, Tyson. He is excited to spread his nutrition focused mindset to the community by launching Pet Wants of North Orange County. Fadeel has always been passionate about pets. Before Pet Wants, he worked for a training company overseas as the general manager. Prior to that, he spent seven years at PetSmart and often fostered animals that were left outside the store. He has taken on the role of fostering dogs, cats, and parrots in addition to his pets. He currently has two tanks of fish, three bearded dragons, a cockatiel, and two cats. He is excited to bring awareness to pet nutrition so animal lovers, like himself, can have healthier pets that live longer.
“My cat is prone to urinary tract infections, so he has to eat certain kinds of food. I also had a health scare recently that encouraged me to change the way I was eating. It’s amazing how eating better food can make you feel so much better – it’s true for both me and Tyson. Eating differently changed my life and I’m looking forward to helping people make that sort of change for their pets,” Fadeel said.

Marco Di Pasquale Launches Pet Wants of Kzoo West
Marco Di Pasquale is excited to help pet families feed their pets fresh, healthy food with his new business, Pet Wants of Kzoo West. When Di Pasquale was fighting brain cancer, he got a dog to keep him company. He quickly fell in love with his French Bulldog, Mio. Di Pasquale was dealing with his own health problems, while also spending tens of thousands of dollars on Mio’s health problems. They eventually discovered what made both Mio and Di Pasquale feel better –eating healthy.
“After I moved to Michigan, I decided to foster an 11-year-old dog named Missy. She had parasites, eye issues, ear infections, and heartworm when she was found on the street. She had special needs with all her medications. She needed personal attention, patience, and love due to incontinence, but I also discovered that she had an awful diet based on the cheapest kibble you could find. After switching her to Pet Wants and addressing her other needs, she was able to recover her dignity – she was all smiles and wagging tail. That’s what I want for all pets and I’m proud to represent Pet Wants in this community,” Marco Di Pasquale states.
