President's Corner - Leslie Granger


As President and CEO of Bideawee since August 2017 and an avid animal lover, I am often asked for my opinions on many issues relating to the animal welfare field. Sometimes the issues are very serious, sometimes they are controversial, and sometimes I’m asked for my opinion on fun and light-hearted subjects. I’ve been asked everything from whether I think cats are smarter than dogs to what the most pressing issue facing pets in this country is! In addition, not only am I ultimately responsible for the care of thousands of animals each year, but I oversee an amazing team of staff and volunteers across three sites in Manhattan and Long Island and this brings with it many concerns that face both humans and pets. This is a place you can visit to find some of my thoughts on many subjects – both light-hearted and serious. Thank you for joining me on this journey to save more animals’ lives.
