Bideawee to Honor Iams at Tonight's Gala

Joe Garrison, a member of the Bideawee Board
Emeritus group, is being honored tonight for his years
 of service to Bideawee. Here he is with his Wheaten
Terrier, Austin, who Joe adopted from Bidewee
This past December, we participated in the Iams Home 4 the Holidays campaign, a wonderful progam that helps suport shelter and rescue pets in need. And we recently learned that Bideawee, one of the shelters that participates in the Home 4 the Holidays program, is honoring Iams at its annual June Gala in New York City tonight.

Bideawee, a Scottish term for "stay a while," is one of the oldest animal pet adoption and animal welfare organizations in the United States and serves the New York metropolitan area and Long Island communities.

Tonight, Bideawee is presenting the "Bideawee Corporate Award" to Iams in recognition of its corporate contributions to foster the health and well being of pets.

Says our pal Bev VanZant, also known as Pet Care Bev from Iams, "It makes me so proud to have this incredible organization take notice of our long-standing commitment in promoting responsible pet adoption and our support of animal adoption organizations across the country. This past year, you may recall, we helped more than 1.1 million pets find forever homes and donated 5 million meals to shelter and rescue pets in need. It's icing on the cake for Bideawee to honor us with this award!"

The Bideawee Ball is the premier social gathering that celebrates animal welfare and the mission to promote and support safe, loving long-term relationships between people and pets.
