Bideawee Will Host Two Special Events in December to Spread Holiday Cheer and Raise Money for Homeless Animals on Long Island

Westhampton, New York, November 28, 2018 – Bideawee, a leading animal welfare and pet adoption organization serving metropolitan New York and Long Island, will host two special holiday-themed fundraiser events on Saturday, December 1 and Friday, December 14 in the Westhampton area.

“Helping bring together pets and people is important to us – especially during the holiday season,” said Amy Brostoff, director of marketing at Bideawee. “Both events will not only spread joy to participants, but will raise money to support the care of our animals, and will provide an opportunity for our adoptable pets to meet potential families. Our holiday wish is to find them all a home for the holidays.”

The community is encouraged to bring their pets to Bideawee’s Westhampton location at 118 Old Country Road on December 1 for photos with Santa. Photo sessions will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on a first come, first serve basis. For a $15 donation, attendees will not only be supporting homeless animals, but will also receive a digital copy of their pet’s holiday photo and a Bideawee gift bag. In addition to the photos, attendees will have the opportunity to meet adoptable dogs and cats. To ensure people meet the right pet to match their lifestyle, Bideawee Matchmakers will be available.

For the second event on December 14, Bideawee is teaming up with Donaldsons Volkswagen Subaru to spread holiday cheer to employees at local businesses by bringing adoptable dogs to offices as part of its annual Holiday Cuddle Dispatch. Companies must apply on the Bideawee website in advance with a charitable donation to have a Subaru Forester filled with adoptable puppies stop by between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a visit. Media is welcome to stop by Donaldsons for photos and/or video of the volunteers and puppies getting ready for the visits. Please contact Amy Brostoff at if you are interested.

“We are proud to partner with Bideawee for the fourth year in a row for the Holiday Cuddle Dispatch,” said Steve Fulco, General Manager Sales Operations at Donaldsons Volkswagen Subaru. “It’s an amazing opportunity for us to get out in the community and bring smiles to so many working Long Islanders while helping find homes for adoptable puppies during the holiday season.”
