About Volunteer Application

  • Volunteer Qualities

    Bideawee’s mission is to cultivate and support the life-long relationships between pets and the people who love them. Bideawee is seeking volunteers who believe in the mission and will represent Bideawee in a professional and positive manner. A desire to improve the lives of animals in need is a critical part of being a successful volunteer at Bideawee.  The organization welcomes all pet lovers to become a part of the Bideawee family by volunteering to have a positive impact in the lives of animals in need.

  • Time Commitment

    Bideawee prefers volunteers who can devote a minimum commitment of 6 months. Depending on the job, some volunteer opportunities require a weekly commitment. However, there may be other volunteer opportunities that have been specifically designed for individuals that have limited time to give to the organization. If you are interested in volunteering please contact one of the Bideawee Volunteer Coordinators at the location closest to you - Manhattan, Wantagh, Westhampton - at 866-262-8133 to see where there are opportunities that will work within the constricts of your calendar.

  • References and Age Requirements

    Most volunteer opportunities have a minimum age requirement of 18 years or older. However there are volunteer opportunities for pet lovers under the age of 18 if accompanied by a relative. This includes volunteers that work with animals and machinery. Foster volunteers must be at least 21 years of age. Please take a look at our volunteer opportunities page for all age requirements. Bideawee appreciates every member of our volunteer community and the organization strives to make each experience an enjoyable journey.
