Adopting an animal from pet adoption and foster centers in NYC is the ultimate win-win: You get a pet aka a best friend on four legs, and an animal gets the chance to live a full life with a loving family. Especially in a big city, where so many pet owners give up their pets for adoption, anyone looking to buy a puppy or kitten should first stop by a rescue shelter to see if they click with an animal in need of a home. Most of these shelters prep the animals for adoption by vaccinating and neutering them, so all you have to worry about is which of the to take your new pup to, where you’ll go for brunch at or which in NYC to go to buy your kitty the cutest accessories. So stop fawning over bodega cats you can’t take home with you and get to one of NYC’s best pet adoption and foster centers to rescue your own.

Bideawee exists due to the generosity of people who love pets. The care Bideawee provides for animals throughout their stay at the Adoption Center at Bideawee is very costly. 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.

Bideawee spends an average of $1500 caring for each animal during their stay with us. Close to 5,500 pets were adopted in a single weekend during  in NYC on May 31 & June 1, 2014.
