Mission Statement

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.


Founded in 1903 by Mrs. Flora D'Auby Jenkins Kibbe, Bideawee, which means "stay awhile" in Scottish, is one of the oldest and largest humane organizations in the United States. Bideawee's three locations in New York, Wantagh, and Westhampton is home to approximately 350 to 500 animals at any one time and places thousands of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens in loving homes every year. The organization operates two full-service veterinary practices in Manhattan and Westhampton and is also home to two of the oldest and largest Pet Memorial Parks in the country located in Wantagh and Westhampton, NY.
