About Us - Pet Wants Cuyahoga

Lauren and Andrew Northcraft

Finding the right pet food for your dog or cat can be challenging, especially if they are dealing with digestive issues or overall health problems. I know what it’s like because our Shar-Pei, Moose, has Familial Shar-Pei Fever, a genetic condition. When our vet told us Moose would probably only live 3 years – but definitely no longer than 6 years – we started looking for ways to improve his life. That’s when we found Pet Wants.

I’m Lauren Northcraft and I own this business with my husband, Andrew Northcraft. We have three kids and three dogs – Moose, a Dutch Shepherd named Monroe, and a Pitbull mix named Beau. We decided to open Pet Wants Cuyahoga because we’ve seen the impact from Pet Wants’ commitment to providing quality nutrition for our four-legged family members.

Pet Wants’ specially crafted 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 food is nutrient dense, not just because of the ingredients, but because of how it’s cooked and that it’s delivered fresh.

Andrew and I are both Ohio natives and we met at Xavier University in Cincinnati. After we got Moose’s diagnosis and found Pet Wants (which had just opened in Findlay Market), Andrew, who was in the entrepreneurship program at Xavier, started working as the company’s first intern. Within a couple of weeks, Andrew was moving palettes of food and making deliveries. We have been part of the Pet Wants family ever since. We absolutely love the products, the mission and the company and we’re thrilled to be the owners and operators of Pet Wants Cuyahoga.

Pet Wants has a 100-percent, money-back guarantee on the freshness and quality of our food and we only sources 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. We also offer multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more.
