People are more focused than ever on living healthier lifestyles, so why should they feed fast food to their pets? Pet Wants is the health food of the animal world. Pet Wants food is slow cooked in small batches with high-quality ingredients – not with fillers or harmful chemicals – and delivered fresh to your door. Our products can help your pets live healthier, happier lives.

I’m Maureen Farr, the local owner and operator of Pet Wants North Tampa. I run this business with my autistic adult son, Channing, as well as my two best friends, Rachelle Simonof and Carolyn Victor. We offer multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as a healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax, and more. Pet Wants North Tampa is a mobile business offering free, personal delivery services to New Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Pebble Creek, Odessa, Lutz, and Carrollwood.

Rachelle, Carolyn, and I know what it’s like to try to find the right pet food for your furry companions. I’m a failed pet foster mom who ended up adopting her two Chihuahuas, Katie and Makai, and a Beagle named Sedona that were all my fosters. I also have a Great Dane, Devon, who I’m training to be a service dog for my son. Rachelle is a proud pet mom owned by two Shiba Inus, Justice and Raven. Carolyn is our favorite cat lady – she has had cats all her life and currently owns two energetic rescues, Nugget and Smokey. We understand that every pet is unique, and we look forward to helping you find the right products for yours.

I enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1993 and retired as a Major in 2013. In addition to owning and working with Pet Wants, I work as a contractor, flying drones overseas. I’m also a certified pharmacy technician and veterinary technician and I have a Bachelor’s degree in liberal studies, a Masters of Education degree, and am currently working on my PhD in psychology with a health psychology emphasis. I have been volunteering with the local humane society for many years and, because of my experience as a veterinary technician, I often foster newborn animals.

Rachelle, Carolyn, and I have been talking about going into business together and I was ready to be able to spend more time home. I love working with animals, but I didn’t want to go back into being a veterinary technician, so I started doing some research and found Pet Wants. The products, the story, and the business model spoke to us and now we’re excited to be able to bring Pet Wants to the people here in the northern Tampa area.

Pet Wants has a 100-percent, money-back guarantee on the freshness and quality of our food and we only source the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice, and other ingredients available. There’s no sugar added, no fillers, and no animal by-products and Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy, or dyes, which makes the food great for animals with allergies.

Give us a call today and let’s talk about how we can help you find the food and products that work best for your pet and your family. Thanks!
