Two Navy Retirees Bring Pet Wants to Amelia Island Area

When Tonya Garcia got her service dog, Sage, after retiring from the Navy, she realized two things – she needed a career that allowed her to have Sage as part of her daily routine and Sage needed special nutritional care. Now Garcia and her partner, Frank Zollars – both Navy veterans – are excited to start their new careers together as the owners of Pet Wants Amelia Island.

“Sage, my service animal, is a German Shepherd and my partner. I found it challenging to work her into my regular career, so I started to think about what my next steps might be. When I combined that search with her need for a specialized diet, I realized Pet Wants would be a wonderful opportunity to bring together our needs, my passion for education and my love of animals,” Garcia said.
