Bideawee, a leading animal welfare and pet adoption organization serving metropolitan New York and Long Island, will be bringing a few exceptional four-legged friends who are looking for a forever home to the Westhampton Ben & Jerry's location as part of a special fundraiser and pet adoption event.
"Ben & Jerry's in Westhampton has supported Bideawee over the past few years allowing us to bring adoptable dogs to their shop and showcasing our pets in the community," explained Amy Brostoff, associate director of marketing at Bideawee.

In addition to showcasing the lovable pups, Ben & Jerry's is donating 30 percent of the proceeds from the day's sales to Bideawee. So go ahead and treat yourself to that Mini Vermonster - because it's for the dogs.
