MEDIA ALERT From (ABNewswire) Bideawee and Goldman Sachs Sponsor Pet Vet Exams for Homeless Pet Owners on 8/26

Thursday, August 25, 2016

I am posting this as a courtesy only! I have received nothing--but felt when asked by the publicist that it was worthy of my charity tab!

I have pretty much copied this word for word from the press release sent to me by ABNewswire.

I have known about Bideawee located in NYC for many years--they have always been there to help the animals of NYC. And now they are partnering with Goldman Saks to help the homeless who own pets to get free vet exams!!

"Homeless Pet Owners in NYC can bring their cats and dogs to Bideawee’s on-staff veterinarian Dr. Shian Simms who will conduct feline and canine health exams and distribute animal care packages in Bideawee’s mobile adoption van.

The event will be held on Friday August 26 from 12:30 – 4:30 p.m. at The Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen located at:
296 Ninth Avenue at 23rd Street, New York, NY.

While I have precious little good to say about Goldman Sachs, it's nice that there is a program like this for pets and the homeless. Many homeless love their pets fiercely, it's great that there is some help for them.
Maybe GS start will expressing more public good and less corporate greed. This is a lovely start.
