Over the years (over 30) I have adopted four cats from Bideawee and to me, the whole organization is about love. They love the little fuzzies. These are really, really good people. The shelter is no-kill and takes in a lot of harder cases, like old and sick dogs and cats who need the most help. Dr. Paar is the vet center is skilled, compassionate and honest-- What I want in a vet.

I can affirm the superb care provided at this no-kill shelter and hospital, having contributed monthly to its Paws of Hope program for several years. Bideawee communicates with supporters, for example with stories about individual animals brought for advanced veterinary care. Bideawee has numerous volunteer programs and arranges numerous adoption and fund-raising events. Hurricane Sandy forced Bideawee to evacuate to one of its facilities outside Manhattan; the evacuation was accomplished with the greatest care to all animals, including those in the midst of risky and sophisticated treatment. Bideawee saves and heals animals other shelters give up on or are forced to release, then finds them permanent homes. An established organization supported entirely by contributions, Bidewee deserves all possible recognition.
