From our founding in 1903, as one of our country’s first no-kill animal welfare organizations, Bideawee has been a leader in rescuing dogs and cats and successfully integrating them into loving homes. We do this by providing the highest quality shelter experience, medical care, socialization and adoption services within a disciplined and sustainable financial structure. We are a compassionate team of dedicated staff, board members and volunteers, and our work demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the well-being of animals and their people in our community.
We believe that a loving relationship with a companion animal is enriching, promotes health and well- being, and brings joy to everyday life. Adoption is a relationship, not a transaction.
We believe that every dog and cat deserves to live in a safe, loving, suitable home.
We believe that companion animals are significant, contributing members of families and communities and should be accepted and respected as such.
We believe that people should have access to information, resources and other services that support the health and behavior of their pets throughout their lifetimes while, at the same time, increasing the enjoyment these people take in their animals.
We believe in developing personalized services and high-quality programs through effective, continuous improvement and leadership.
We believe in acting with honesty, care and consideration in the workplace and in everything we do.
At Bideawee, our primary responsibility is to help every person be a caring and knowledgeable pet parent.
