Our pets are our family. Pets extend our lives with all the joy they bring us and they deserve not only our love, but also the best nutrition we can give them. At Pet Wants, we are dedicated to providing high-quality pet food that is fresh and nutritious. I’m Alex Kombogiannis and I own this local business with my wife, Shawn.
At Pet Wants, 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. We offer multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more. Our storefront is located at 1310 Ranch Road 620 south, suite A7, Austin, Texas 78734 and we offer free delivery to Bee Cave, Lakeway, Steiner Ranch, Westlake, Tarrytown, River Place, NW Hills, Circle C, Zilker and Bear Creek.
I was born in Greece and moved to New York when I was four. I owned and operated a successful dry cleaning business, but I was never passionate about the work. Shawn is a native of Austin who worked in a myriad of executive positions at culinary schools until 2006 when she moved to New York to be with me. After spending eight wonderful years together in New York, we decided to move to Austin together. It was not easy to convince a life-long New Yorker to leave the city – until Shawn gave me a tour of Lakeway. I fell in love with Lakeway immediately and knew this was where I wanted to be. We love it here and we’re thrilled to own a business together working with animals and doing something we both enjoy and have a tremendous passion for.
A year after moving to Texas, Shawn and I decided to adopt a beautiful little dog who was on the verge of death. We saw this beautiful black lab online and decided to go see if he spoke to us – he was very sick weighing only 60 pounds, with more than 300 ticks on him, two tick infections, two upper respiratory infections, anemia, and a fever of 105. We fell in love with him at first sight, took him to the vet immediately, got him healthy and he’s been with us ever since. We named him Winston because we felt like he deserved a strong name and I’ve always admired Winston Churchill.
Winston loves the Pet Wants food and his coat is very thick, soft, and shiny. Winston brings us so much joy every day and we are thrilled that we can feed him a food that’s so good for him and that he enjoys. His experience with the Pet Wants food helped us decide that this was a business we wanted to open here in Austin. Come by the shop for a sample of our food and bring your dog or cat with you so we can treat them to the proper nutrition they deserve or contact us for free, personal delivery!
