New York, NY—On October 6, 2013, there was another protest against Bideawee, located at 410 East 38th Street, in NYC.
The above Video and Photo are from that Protest.
Bideawee is a NYC ANIMAL SHELTER that has been employing an animal abuser named GARY HOOPER there for years. And, Bideawee has been retaliatory when this has been brought to their attention, in addition to ignoring the protests and phone calls against Gary Hooper. They have also been unresponsive to a generous offer to fund the installation of security cameras FOR FREE, which just shows that Bideawee is protecting an animal abuser.
Bideawee really exemplifies the case of the fox guarding the hen house.
This is one of several protests against Bideawee, since subsequent inquiring phone calls after our previous protests were NOT returned.
They do NOT want to be held ACCOUNTABLE for employing an animal abuser.
The above Video was shot from our Bideawee Ball protest. In it, a Bideawee Staffer shook her finger at a protester. The Staffer was defending an animal abuser, and yelling "You know him?"
Staffer Val, you know who doesn't KNOW Gary with the animals? Upper Management at Bideawee, like Steve Tedder and Marcia Hennessey, rarely are even on the FLOORS that the animals are. And, Gary is allowed unlimited, unsupervised time with the animals. And, this all occurs without cameras.Bideawee is RELYING on people like you, Val, who will never stand up to having an animal abuser on their Staff, or even stand for having cameras in the multitude of areas where Gary Hooper can have unlimited, unsupervised time with the animals.
Please see below for some Footage from our previous 2 protests, both which went ignored by the Staff there, aside from calling the cops on our peaceful protests. You can also Visit our Protests Page at: http://www.bideaweeemploysabusers.org/Protests.html
Bideawee on 410 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016, a NYC ANIMAL SHELTER, has employed an animal abuser named GARY HOOPER there for years.
The above 2 Videos are from our 2nd Protest against Bideawee on 4.28.13. The 2nd Protest had to happen because our phone calls about Gary Hooper to Bideawee went un-returned.
Bideawee called the NYPD again on us, as the 1st Video demonstrates. It's odd how Bideawee will call the cops on a peaceful demonstration, but let an animal abuser remain on STAFF.
I have witnessed him abusing the animals (and he verbally harasses PEOPLE). There is often a connection between animal abuse and people abuse.
When I brought it to the attention of the Bideawee Staff through emails, it took them many months to sit-down with me in a meeting that I was TOLD was to be about Gary's abuse. It wasn't.
They RETALIATED against me by forcing me to leave volunteering, in a decision that both Marcia Hennessey (HR) and Steve Tedder (Marketing) said they had reached BEFORE even sitting down to the meeting. The meeting was never about the abuser, Gary.
That's how Bideawee handled complaints about having an animal abuser on its Staff! They have received many other complaints about Gary, but most people who complain about him just disappear from Bideawee. He is protected by Marcia Hennessey, who said she views her Staff as her "babies" and set up a false dichotomy between choosing between Gary and myself.
The choice should be about choosing what is good for the ANIMALS, which she never mentioned.
Oh, and their MARKETING man, Steve Tedder, initially tried to make jokes and minimize the situation of having an animal abuser WORKING in an animal shelter by saying it was some kind of "personality difference".
ADOPT from Bideawee just to get them away from that abusive Staffer, Gary!
