Steve and Amy Dicks
The world of pet food can be complicated, especially if you have a pet with special dietary needs or health challenges. We’re Steve and Amy Dicks, the local owners and operators of Pet Wants East Raleigh, and we opened this business because we saw an opportunity to bring fresh, healthy, convenient pet food to the community we love.
We’ve been together since 1992 and now have two beautiful children, Xander and Sienna. We’ve spent the majority of our careers in retail and sales and have always had pets in our lives. Currently we have a French Bulldog named Ms. Giggles. After finding Pet Wants, we started looking into the food we fed Giggles. We thought it was a decent food that was within our budget, but as we researched Pet Wants, we started to realize how many fillers are in most pet foods and how long some of those foods have been sitting on the shelf. Now Ms. Giggles is eating Pet Wants – she absolutely loves it and we feel good about giving it to her.
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 because it’s delivered fresh.
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. We also offer multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as a healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax, and more.
We try to live healthy lives and are mindful about what we eat. We are excited that, through Pet Wants, we can help pets in our community live healthier, happier lives by bringing high-quality, fresh, nutritious food to our community. We could have opened a business selling anything, but we’re excited to be selling something we believe in and we’re looking forward to sharing that passion with you!
