Life-Long New Orleanian Brings Pet Wants to the French Quarter

Born and raised in New Orleans, Patricia Benit-Laing is excited that she’s following a life-long dream in her own hometown with the launch of her new business – Pet Wants French Quarter.

“I've wanted to have a pet store since I was a little girl. I was lucky enough to work for my cousin who is a veterinarian through high school and college where I developed my passion for pet healthcare. While we have some amazing products, I’m most excited about our food because it’s made from fresh ingredients that are slow cooked on low heat to preserve the nutritional value,” Benit-Laing said.

Pet Wants’ specially crafted, private-label pet food formulas are made in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients, enhanced with vitamins and minerals, for a complete and balanced diet in every bowl.  Pet Wants French Quarter has multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas, all made in the USA. They also offer a wide variety of natural healing and calming products, such as natural salves, balms, anti-itch sprays, paw wax and more.

“Pet Wants is unique because all of our products are made with fresh, high-quality ingredients with a focus on providing pets with the best possible nutritional and supplemental products. I’m looking forward to bringing Pet Wants to New Orleans and helping pets live longer, healthier lives,” Benit-Laing said.

Benit-Laing and her family have a long history of pet ownership including cats, dogs, birds, hamsters and a bearded dragon, but currently only cohabitate with two French Bulldogs, Jackson and Rose. Pet Wants French Quarter is a mobile business that offers personal delivery service to Uptown, The Garden District, Lower Garden District, Mid City, French Quarter, Bayou St. John, Carrollton, Fontainebleau, Audubon, Algiers, Central City, CBD and the surrounding areas.
