Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our cats or dogs, please submit an online adoption application for the pet you are interested in.
Please note that we will not be responding to general applications; you must submit an application for a specific cat or dog in order to be considered.
We are asking that interested adopters not come by either of our shelters in person as we are only processing adoptions via appointment at this time.
Please note that because of the quantity of applications we receive for certain animals (particularly puppies and kittens), we may be unable to respond to each applicant. If you have applied for a cat or dog and see that they are no longer available on the website, you can assume they have been adopted, and we strongly encourage you to apply for another.
Thank you for your cooperation during this time, and we look forward to introducing you to your new best friend!
Bideawee spends an average of $1500 caring for each animal during their stay with us. 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.
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 to match you with an adoptable animals that aligns with your personality and preferences. Due to the familiarity that all Bideawee Matchmakers have with our animals, 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.
