Diane Johnson Opens Pet Wants Cranberry

Diane Johnson and her two dogs, Norman and Sadie, are pleased to announce the launch of Johnson’s new business, Pet Wants Cranberry.

Diane JohnsonPet Wants Cranberry is a mobile business that offers free, personal delivery to the northern Pittsburgh communities surrounding Cranberry Township, including Seven Fields, Mars, Zelienople, Rochester, Freedom, Ambridge, Sewickley, Ross Township, Franklin Park, Wexford, McCandless and Warrendale.

“I’m a big believer in food as healing, but trying to make sure my pets were getting the nutrition they needed with off the shelf products was proving to be an overwhelming task. I was drawn to Pet Wants because of the quality, freshness, and the trustworthiness of the food. Then with more research, I found that the great pet food attributes were matched by the upstanding character of the company. Quality, freshness, trustworthiness, character ... that all truly matters to me, so I decided to open my own local franchise. Pet Wants is the perfect combination of my love of my pets and my passion for trustworthy nutrition,” Johnson said.

Johnson has two Labrador mix rescues that she adopted after her beloved Great Dane/Labrador mix passed away. She was still heartbroken, but ready to expand her family, when she met Norman and Sadie, who had been rescued by a family who found them running through a state park in Kentucky.

“I drove up to the rescue not knowing that Norman and Sadie were waiting for me. I met the other animals at the rescue, but none of them were the right fit. When I met Norman and Sadie, they had just arrived at the rescue and they were a muddy mess and they stole my heart. We thought they were adult dogs – but they were still puppies – and now they are a healthy 90- and 80-pounds. I’ve tried to do whatever I can to make their lives amazing and now I’m excited that they get to come to work with me,” Johnson said.

Pet Wants Visitor BoardJohnson comes to Pet Wants with more than 25 years of corporate experience across the retail, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and financial industries. She has more than 20 years of experience as a Six Sigma Greenbelt focused on process improvement and she has consulted with Fortune 100 executive teams on the improvement of business performance. Although Johnson was proud of her corporate career, she decided that she wanted to run her own business when she found Pet Wants.

“My dogs have always had some itching that I couldn’t stop and their coats were a charcoal color. I didn’t even realize their color was dull. Now that they are eating Pet Wants, I’m having people ask me if I dye them black because their coats have improved so much and the itching has stopped. Originally I thought they might be sensitive to chicken, but it turns out they are just sensitive to poor-quality food. Pet Wants has made a big difference for Norman and Sadie and I’m excited to see the difference it makes for other animals in my community,” Johnson said.
