Slow Food from the Farm and Trish’s Kitchen To Your Door with Love
We all know that eating better can help us live better lives; the same is true for our pets. Patricia “Trish” Benit-Laing, the local owner of Pet Wants French Quarter, has wanted to own a pet store since she was a little girl. Trish explained, “I was lucky enough to work for my cousin who is a veterinarian through high school and college where I developed my passion for pet healthcare. While we have some amazing products, I’m most excited about our food because it’s made from fresh ingredients that are slow cooked on low heat to preserve the nutritional value.”

Trish’s family has a long history of pet ownership, but currently they only cohabitate with two adorable French Bulldogs, Jackson and Rose. She is a lifelong New Orleans resident, pet enthusiast, an established abstract artist, and retired from a 26-year career in teaching academics and art to launch Pet Wants. She is thrilled to deepen her relationship with the community as a small business owner and is celebrating the first anniversary of her fresh, naturally sourced pet food and supply shop.

Pet Wants French Quarter is a mobile business that offers personal free delivery service within weeks of being made to New Orleans and surrounding areas. All products are made with fresh, high-quality ingredients, providing pets with the best possible nutritional and supplemental products to help pets live long, healthy lives. Their specially crafted, private-label 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. They offer multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas, as well as healthy treats made in Trish’s home like house made Sweet “Pawtatoes,” “Peanutty” Cookies, and beef jerky. CBD calming products, a digestive formula, bone and joint formula supplements, naturally healing and calming “Spaw” products, and all-natural chews are available. They use no fillers, animal by-products, sugar, corn, wheat, soy or dyes, which makes the food perfect for animals with allergies.

Pet Wants’ mission is to enhance the health, vitality and life of pets with high-quality food and honest advice from a Pet Nutrition Specialist at each location. Trish, the local owner of Pet Wants French Quarter, can create a personalized mix of food formulas for your pet.
