  • Adoption Fee

    Bideawee exists due to the generosity of people who love pets. The care Bideawee provides for animals throughout their stay at the Adoption Center at Bideawee is very costly. To help offset these expenses, there is a processing fee for each adoption. In NYC, there is an additional license registration fee required for those who adopt a dog.

    Bideawee spends an average of $1500 caring for each animal during their stay with us.


    • Puppies under 6 months - $350
    • Small breed adult dogs less than 20 pounds - $200
    • All other adult dogs - $150


    • Kittens less than 6 months - $150 (Second kitten less than 6 months – half off at $75)
    • Adult cats - $125
    • Senior cats greater than 7 years - $50.



  • Adoption Consultation

    Once the Bideawee Matchmaker has gathered all the necessary information, he/she will take you through all the steps in the adoption process. Bideawee Matchmakers use the information that you provide about your habits and lifestyle and match them with the behavior, activity level and personality of the pets in the Adoption Centers at Bideawee.  Due to the familiarity that all Bideawee Matchmakers have with the available pets we can work with potential adopters to make a perfect match that will last a lifetime.   

    In addition, if you currently have a dog(s), please bring your 
    dog(s) into the adoption center, where s/he can get acquainted with a Bideawee dog in a private room.
