History and Serenity in Perpetuity 

One of the most remarkable aspects of Bideawee is the incredibly rich and unique history that we have as a 117-year-old organization. Perhaps there is no better place to witness this history than at our beautiful Wantagh and Westhampton Pet Memorial Parks. More than 65,000 cherished pets have found a final resting place there, and the beautiful and serene grounds are a testament to the love and commitment people have for their four-legged companions.

Pick of the Litter: Mango

Picked by: Deanna Murphy, Adoption Center Manager

Meet Mango, our Pick for October! Mango is a special girl who came to us after being abandoned by her owner as a senior kitty. We can only imagine how hard it was for her to lose her home and the only family she’s known for 12 years; however, her tragic tale hasn’t altered her loving personality one bit. She’s the sweetest girl and even gives kisses! Mango is a wonderful companion and deserves all the cuddles, comfort & affection in the world. Mango is healthy and adorable, and we can’t wait for her to begin the next chapter of her life.
