Bide Awhile is a private, no-kill animal shelter that has been serving HRM since 1969. At the very heart of Bide Awhile is the respect we have for our animal friends and the value we place on our relationships with them. We believe that both human and animal lives are enriched when they come together and because of this, we work hard to place animals in in loving home environments.

On an annual basis, Bide Awhile finds “furrever” homes for approximately 380 cats and dogs. Current programs include a pet visitation program at local senior’s residences, and a reading circle with school children at the grade 3/4 level. Since 2002 we have been providing a low cost spay/neuter program for low income families,

I was raised to volunteer: nursing homes, clinics, church nurseries, school, everywhere that could use help. It’s such an intrinsic part of me, to use my life to help improve the quality of others. Debby Ryan
