Local Family Brings Pet Wants to Ohio

Local residents Danielle and Jason Moats are pleased to announce the launch of their new pet food and supply business, Pet Wants Chardon.

Danielle and Jason will be opening their store at 209 Center Street, Unit I, in Chardon with a grand opening on Saturday, October 19. Free, personal delivery in parts of Geauga, Lake and Cuyahoga Counties, including Madison, Perry, Chardon, Chesterland, Gates Mills, Mayfield, Wickliffe and East Cleveland. The Moats also own a Pet Wants territory in Solon with delivery services to Hudson, Aurora, Twinsburg, Streetsboro and the surrounding cities.

Danielle has lived a dual life throughout her career – while she found her full-time work in the corporate world in finance and operations, she always had a second job that kept her involved with animals. Danielle owned a pet sitting business while in college, did accounting work for a veterinarian’s office part time, managed a boarding facility on weekends, had a small business baking dog treats and launched a non-profit that catered to street dogs while the Moats lived in Houston. Now she’s looking forward to working with animals full-time – and with Jason by her side – with Pet Wants Chardon.

“Pet Wants enables us to work with animals and focus on nutrition, which are two of our passions. I am a strong believer that our health is dependent on what we put into our bodies – whether you have two legs or four legs. Pet Wants provides an opportunity for us to help pet owners understand what’s in most commercial, mass-produced pet food and offer them better options through Pet Wants. It also allows us to help pet families take a more holistic approach to pet health through both our food and our other unique products,” Danielle said.

Jason and Danielle have four children – Alexis, Vinson, Savannah and Isaac – as well as four rescue dogs, Harlem, Star, Brooklyn and Sabie. Danielle was born in Lake County and Jason lived in Perry his whole life except for the three years he and Danielle lived in Houston. They decided to move back to Ohio and settle in Perry because Danielle fell in love with the small town charm and small community atmosphere. They’re looking forward to becoming more involved in the community through Pet Wants Chardon.

“Jason and I have always wanted to open a business together and we wanted it to be something that we could be passionate about and that our whole family could be a part of, which is what led us to Pet Wants. We are thrilled to be able to bring these great products to the Chardon region and to support the community we call home as business owners,” Danielle said.
