When Kevin and Kristine Ford started feeding their dogs Pet Wants pet food, they saw the positive impact almost immediately. Their pets’ energy was up, their coats looked great and they even started shedding less. Now the Fords are pleased to announce that they are bringing Pet Wants food and pet supplies to their community by launching their new business – Pet Wants South County.
“It’s hard to know what’s best for your individual pet, especially when there are so many crazy expensive options out there. We’re excited that, with Pet Wants, we can give people an opportunity to find a fresh, high-quality and nutritionally-balanced food that’s more affordable than human-grade food, doesn’t have to be refrigerated and isn’t raw. We also offer treats and Spaw products that are specially designed to help your pets live their best lives,” Kevin said.
Kristine and Kevin have been married for 26 years. Their family started with a Beagle and now they have one daughter, Nicole, and two dogs – a 10-year-old Australian Cattle Dog named Libby and a 2-year-old Bichon Frise/Shih Tzu mix named Angel. Kristine, who was born and raised in Orange County, started her career in human resources. After taking some time off to stay home with their daughter, she went back to work managing an E-Commerce business that uses the profits to build orphanages around the world. Kevin owns a business that helps start-up companies get their products to market. He’s a member of the Elks and regularly volunteers his time to support veterans and a variety of great causes.
“We had been considering opening a business together, but we wanted to do something we were passionate about. We’ve always had dogs and we are passionate about their health and well-being. In a time when people are thinking more about what they are eating and about what they are feeding their pets, Pet Wants meets a need here in South County. With Pet Wants, you can get high-quality, fresh food and treats that are convenient and nutritionally-balanced,” Kevin said. “We started feeding our own dogs Pet Wants before we launched this business and we saw a difference almost immediately. They are both doing great and it’s amazing how much less they are shedding.”
As Pet Wants nutrition experts, Kevin and Kristine can help pet parents create a diet that’s custom to their individual animals’ needs and suggest additional treats and other products too. For the Fords, it’s about creating a personal experience for each customer and helping people and pets live happier lives.
“Pet Wants is truly designed to help people and their pets. Nutrition has a dramatic impact on the lives of our animals and, when our animals are happy, so are we. Pet Wants is an amazing opportunity for us to make a difference in our community while making new two-legged and four-legged friends. We look forward to Pet Wants’ future here in South County,” Kristine said.
