Founded in 1903 by Mrs. Flora D'Auby Jenkins Kibbe, Bideawee is one of the oldest humane organizations in the United States. Since its founding, Bideawee has been committed to celebrating and respecting the relationship between people and companion animals in life and death. To honor that commitment, in 1916, the nonsectarian Pet Memorial Parks at Bideawee were established to provide an appropriate final resting place for deeply loved companion animals. For more than 90 years, the Pet Memorial Parks at Bideawee, with locations in Wantagh and Westhampton, have been the final peaceful and dignified resting place for more than 65,000 companion animals.
