Volunteer For Bideawee

Bideawee, an animal shelter in Westhampton, is looking for volunteers.

According to President and CEO Leslie Granger, 20 percent of the organization’s volunteers are senior citizens, who walk dogs, socialize kittens and puppies, do office work, and become foster parents for homeless animals.

“Volunteers are a vital part of the Bideawee family,” Granger said. “They devote their time, energy, and talents providing love, compassion, and support to the vulnerable pets in our care who need forever homes. If you love animals and have a couple of spare hours a week, Bideawee would welcome you into our volunteer family.”

Volunteers of all ages are welcome. To apply, visit www.bideawee.org.
