I’m Rich Smith, the local owner of Pet Wants J-town and I’ve always had a passion for animals. I understand that, for many of us, our pets are members of our family and giving them the best opportunity to live a long, healthy, and happy life starts with making sure they are getting the nutrition they need to thrive. At Pet Wants, we are committed to making fresh, high-quality food that’s conveniently delivered—without breaking the bank. We make it easy to give your pets the best.
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 J-town offers multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more. In addition to our shop at 3831 Ruckriegel Parkways, Pet Wants J-town offers free, personal delivery to Jeffersontown, Hikes Point, Fern Creek, Crestwood (Pee Wee Valley), Mt. Washington, and the surrounding areas.
My journey to Pet Wants started when my Corgi named Jake’s health started to decline. He had been losing the ability to use his back legs, so I researching ways to help him feel his best, which included making sure he had the right nutrition. That’s when I found Pet Wants. We took great care of Jake and he was 13 when he died, but I wish we had known about Pet Wants earlier because I know now what a difference quality food can make. Our younger Corgi, Tessa, who has been eating nothing but Pet Wants, is happy and healthy and I’m looking forward to helping other pets live happy, healthy lives.
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.
I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, and attended Trinity High School and the University of Louisville, where I earned my business degree. I previously owned a Louisville comic book business called Zone and have always had a passion for local businesses. I’m looking forward to meeting you and your pets and helping you find the right Pet Wants products for your family.
