We're animal lovers, just like you. Perhaps you already recognize us as one of the nation's leading animal welfare organizations; but there's so much more to what we do. Bideawee is a community - of compassionate caregivers, volunteers, and friends - dedicated to helping people and animals build safe, loving, long-term relationships. That's ambitious, we know. But we believe it's crucial for breaking the cycle of unwanted or abandoned pets in our world. Founded in 1903 by Mrs. Flora D'Auby Jenkins Kibbe, Bideawee, which means "stay awhile" in Scottish, is one of the oldest humane organizations in the United States.
Bideawee's Mission is to promote and support safe, loving, long-term relationships between people and companion animals by providing a continuum of services and programs that are innovative, personalized and of high quality.
