Pet Wants Vancouver and Portland North

We’re Ryan Oller and Jennifer Hope, the local owners of Pet Wants Vancouver and Portland North.  We joined Pet Wants because we absolutely love our two dogs – Jake and Ellie – and care about their nutritional needs. We are animal lovers at heart and want to be centered in a business that serves our community, our customers, and their pets, too. We wanted people to have easy access to fresh, nutritious pet food and high-quality supplies, and to provide dog and cat parents with a holistic approach to their pets’ well-being. We met in junior high, went on one date in high school and then rekindled our relationship at our 20-year high school reunion. We have one son, Sebastian. Ryan comes from a sales management background focused on business development in the greater Seattle area and specialized in selling meat and seafood all over the world. Jennifer has an extensive background in office management, in the radio industry and the window covering industry. We went into business for ourselves after running Jennifer's family's business and realized that the skills and strengths we have together would be better served in starting our own business. 

Owning a business in an industry that we are passionate about, serving our Vancouver and Portland North communities that we love, is something we are excited about each and every day. We look forward to meeting you and your favorite animals!

Our Inspiration

Very simply, you and your pets inspire us to innovate.

Pet Wants was founded on the belief that mainstream, big-box store pet food wasn’t synonymous with nutrition or quality. So, we created a better option. Second to your veterinarian, our goal is to be your trusted resource in pet care.  From food and treats to skin relief, we earn that trust through transparency of ingredients and sourcing, a knowledgeable and caring staff, and a sincere passion to be the best and provide the best for you and your pet.

We are proud of what we do, and what our food and services do for your pet’s quality of life. If you have a story of how Pet Wants has helped your pet, or an idea you’d like to share, click here! We’d love to be inspired!

History of Pet Wants

Our founder, Michele Hobbs, started Pet Wants out of love and frustration. One of her beloved dogs suffered from painful skin allergies and, no matter what food they tried, her pet continued to suffer. Michele realized very quickly that national dog food brands were not fresh, they lacked complete nutrition and, most importantly, they were filled with dozens of non-nutritious ingredients and animal byproducts

Michele decided to change that. She found a manufacturer and worked with them to formulate a custom pet food in small batches to be made fresh every month. Her animals loved the food — and so did the pets of all of her friends. Almost overnight, Pet Wants was born.
