Bideawee Pet of the Week: Annie

Bideawee of Westhampton has a number of pets available for adoption.

This week, is looking to find a home for Annie, a social, sweet 3 year old Hound mix, who is looking for her new family.

According to Deanna Murphy, the client care coordinator for Bideawee, Annie came to Bideawee after we rescued her from a high-kill municipal shelter.

"Annie has a lot of energy and loves to play. She is seeking an obedience-minded adopter, that is willing to teach her basic obedience and can provide her with exercise each day to channel her energy appropriately," Murphy said.

Annie, Murphy said has a lot to offer any family, and would do well in almost any home.

The adoption fee for Annie is $150. All of Bideawee’s pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. Bideawee’s pets receive socialization, exercise, behavioral training and other daily activities that let the staff get to know each animal's special personality to make the best match.

To adopt Annie or any other animal, call the Adoption Center at 631-325-0200 or visit them at 118 Old Country Road, Westhampton.

I would love to adopt from you but your guidlines are to strick for anyone to adopt, my mother tried to adopt awhile ago and i was surprised al the question that were asked. I now you are thinkin of the animal but remember anyone who wants to adopt shouldn't have to give their personnal history and credit rating for adopting an animal. Anyone who wants to adopt should be able to without wondering if they have to give up their first born child. If they have a Heart to go and adopt there then they have the right to adopt.

Hmmm. Bide-A-Wee is one of the premier institutions that provide adoptable pets that are neutered, spayed, vaccinated and chipped. Pet adoption is akin to marriage, it's a relationship. Animals are not capable of assessing the capabilities of those who want to adopt them, so Bide-A- Wee does. There are so many animals that need caring, loving homes and so many people that want companionship and truly care about their animals. But, many adoptions end up being problematic. The "strict guidelines and rigorous exam" for those who adopt Bide-A-Wee pets helps to ameliorate conditions that might not be optimal.

Thank you, Mr. Calabro. Our matchmaking process is designed to ensure a Bideawee pet and the adopter are perfectly matched so they enjoy a rewarding life-long journey together. Many factors are used to ensure that we make perfect matches that last a lifetime. We are sorry you feel these guidelines are too strict, but appreciate your feedback. To clarify, the matchmaking application does not require a credit check on the potential adopter.

Hi Bide-A-Wee, I don't feel these guidelines are too strict. Please read my post carefully. Please note that my family underwrites the neutering program at the WH facility and have been Bide-A-Wee supporters for 3 generations.
