Meet the Owners

About Pet Wants Springfield MOFinding the right food for your pet can be challenging – especially if your favorite companion suffers any health problems. We’re Holly and Dennis Ensor and, before Pet Wants, we were home cooking 80 pounds of hamburger, 50 cups of rice, and 15 pounds of carrots for our dogs each month. When we tried Pet Wants – and saw the difference it made – we knew this was something special. We had talked about opening our own business and decided that opening Pet Wants Springfield would be the perfect combination of our passion for pets and our entrepreneurial spirit.

Pet Wants’ carefully developed proprietary pet food is slow-cooked in small batches with fresh, all-natural ingredients once per month, so every kibble is guaranteed to be fresh and packed with nutrition. In addition to being made fresh monthly, Pet Wants 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, since Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy or dyes, the food is a great fit for pets with allergies. We want to make giving your pets great food easy, so if you live in Springfield, Nixa, Ozark, Republic, Rogersville, or the surrounding communities, we’ll bring the food to your door at no charge.

We’re excited to tell people about the nutritional value of Pet Wants. We had two yellow labs – Ben & Jerry (because we love ice cream!) – and finding food for them was a challenge. We researched everything and tried all kinds of food, but nothing worked until Pet Wants. It’s miraculous. You should feel good about what you’re feeding your pets and, with Pet Wants, we know you will.

When we’re not educating people about pet food or making deliveries, you can find us on our ten acres enjoying nature or spending time with our children – Christopher and his wife Marian and Sarah and her husband Chris – as well as our grandchildren, Gabriel and Jude, and our Labrador, Jerry. We miss Ben very much!

How Pet Wants Got Started

As pet parents know, a pet’s diet is very important. Pet Wants was created in 2010 after the owner of Pet Wants noticed some serious health issues with her beloved pets. Problems began to appear and quickly worsened. Many unsuccessful trips to the veterinarian’s office and several thousands of dollars later, the owner decided to take matters into her own hands. She discovered the problem was the low nutritional value of the food she was feeding her pets. In simple terms, the pets weren’t getting enough of the right nutrients necessary for a healthy life. As a pet parent who cared deeply about her pet’s welfare, she felt terrible — like she had let down a family member. She was shocked to learn that the nationally recognized premium brand food she trusted for her pets lost most of its nutritional value from sitting too long in warehouses, and on store shelves….she decided there had to be a better way.

What's Wrong with Name Brand Foods?

Most commercial pet food is manufactured in mass quantities and sent to a series of distribution warehouses before finally making it onto the shelf at your local store. There it sits…possibly for up to 6-8 months before it’s purchased for consumption. Because pet food loses its nutritional value over time, pets can ultimately end up eating a diet that’s low in nutrition and can ultimately lead to unnecessary sickness, disease and even a shortened life.

How Are Pet Wants Products Different?

It’s simple. Freshness is the key to good nutrition. We provide our proprietary pet food formula that has been carefully developed over the years and deliver to your home to ensure freshness. Your pets will appreciate a healthy, complete and balanced pet food made from fresh, all-natural ingredients. Since our food is slow-cooked to lock in nutrients and is made in frequent, small batches, we deliver the fresh and highly nutritional food to our customers within weeks, not months, of being made. Our customers appreciate the convenience of our auto-delivery system that they can modify prior to each delivery. This ensures that the best possible food is delivered when they need and only how much they need – delivered right to their door – for the same price as most premium commercial pet foods.
