There is an increasing demand for high quality, nutritious, fresh pet food due to a growing desire by pet owners to feed their four-legged family members food of the same high quality they feed themselves.  Additionally, the pandemic created an increased demand for delivery of consumer products.  These two things combined are creating a favorable environment for the successful growth of the Pet Wants brand.  The first quarter of 2021 saw growth in the footprint of the Pet Wants network in Indiana, Missouri, and Maryland.

“Most recently we were living in Portland and we were both facing layoffs because of COVID-19. We were thinking about getting closer to home, so we decided it was time to start a new adventure. There are a lot of great pet-focused companies and boutiques in Portland, which is what inspired us to look into Pet Wants. We’re thrilled to be opening Pet Wants Lee’s Summit and to be serving our community members and their pets,” Ledbetter said.
