Finding the right food for your pet – especially if your pet faces health challenges – can be complicated. What food might work best for your pet? How can the food you put in your pet’s bowl help him live a healthier life? How long has that bag of pet food been sitting on the shelf? I’m Mary Almgren, the local owner and operator of Pet Wants Freeport, and I opened this business because I saw Pet Wants as an exciting opportunity to work with animals in the nutrition space, which is something I’m passionate about.

For the years while I was in medicine – especially while working in oncology – I stressed the importance of a healthy, clean diet. What you eat makes a huge difference in your overall health, especially when you’re facing a health challenge like cancer. I’m excited that now I can have that nutrition conversation with people as it relates to their pets. My German Shepherd, Jurgen Schnell, switched to Pet Wants food and it has made such a difference, especially with his skin. It’s amazing what fresh, natural, high-quality food can do!

Pet Wants is different because our 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 fresh and available by the pound.

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, homemade treats, freeze-dried food and more.

I’ve lived in Brunswick since 1991 and I’m excited that I get to be able to bring these awesome products to people in my own community. I’m also looking forward to having my sons help with the business along the way.

Our products are awesome, but Pet Wants is about more than what we sell. It’s also about having an expert here in this community you can turn to with your pet food questions who can help with recommendations for your individual pet. I think that, combined with the freshness of our food, really sets Pet Wants apart. Stop by the store soon – I’m looking forward to meeting you and your pet!
