Bideawee, a Westhampton and Manhattan-based animal welfare and pet adoption organization, is spreading holiday cheer throughout the Hamptons during two special holiday-themed fundraisers taking place this December.

The first, a chance to have your picture taken with Santa, will be held at the Bideawee Westhampton location on Saturday, December 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The pet friendly photo session will be offered on a first come, first serve basis. There is a $15 donation fee, which will include a digital copy of the holiday photo as well as a Bideawee gift bag. The contribution will support the Bideaweeans awaiting their forever home - who will be available to meet. There will also be Bideawee Matchmakers onsite to help match adopters with the right pet to compliment their lifestyle.

"Helping bring together pets and people is important to us - especially during the holiday season," Amy Brostoff, Bideawee Director of Marketing, explained. "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."

On Friday, December 14, Bideawee is joining forces with Donaldsons Volkswagen Subaru to host the annual Holiday Cuddle Dispatch. Throughout the day, local businesses will welcome some very, very special guests - adoptable puppies. The visits will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and those interested in having a Subaru Forester filled with the adorable Bideaweeans stop by for some cuddling should apply on the Bideawee website in advance with a charitable donation. For more information, contact Amy Brostoff at amy.brostoff@bideawee.org.

"We are proud to partner with Bideawee for the fourth year in a row for the Holiday Cuddle Dispatch," added Steve Fulco, Donaldsons Volkswagen Subaru General Manager Sales Operations. "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."

Bideawee is located at 118 Old Country Road in Westhampton. For more information, visit www.bideawee.org.
