Jason and Traci Darrow Open Pet Wants in Southern Oregon

Jason and Traci Darrow have a passion for animals – they have three dogs of their own and are the loving grandparents to four grand-dogs and one grand-cat. It’s that love for pets that inspired them to open their own business, Pet Wants Southern Oregon, which just opened this week.

Pet Wants Southern Oregon has multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas, treats and chews, as well as healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more. As a mobile business, Pet Wants Southern Oregon offers free, personal delivery from Ashland to Jacksonville and Eagle Point, including to Phoenix, Talent, Medford and Central Point.

“As a family, we prioritize responsible pet ownership and health is at the top of the list, for ourselves and our animals. The healthier and happier they are, the less time we spend with the vet and the more time we spend on adventures. We fed our animals the best — or so we thought until discovering Pet Wants,” Jason said. “As pet owners, we were excited to see Pet Wants turn a new page in the pet nutrition market, offering people like us a reliable brand to both treat our dogs and maintain their daily wellness with a more natural option — without wasteful packaging or empty calories — all focused on what each animal needs.” 

“We are thrilled to share Pet Wants’ true nutrition-focused service approach with pets and pet owners from our Southern Oregon home base, where our community shares a dedication to cultivating long, happy lives for our animals, and bolstering overall community sustainability,” Traci added.

Jason and Traci bring diverse backgrounds to this new business, including experience in economic development, construction, business ownership and leadership, nursing and politics. Having coached and participated in many sporting events and extracurricular activities with their kids, Traci and Jason know well the value of actively supporting all-around healthy community growth and resilience for future generations.
