Doggie Italiano Party


Join us and Be Fido’s Friend for some good Italian food and fun while celebrating the adoption of Sir Enzo Cavatappi "Tappi" n/k/a Dougal.

While the adoption fees for BFF’s adoptable dogs cover the most basic of vetting, dogs such as Tappi need the extra help that Bialy’s supplies. We are so appreciative of their partnership in saving these special pups with mobility issues that we’d like to give back. We hope that with this fundraiser we can do just that, celebrate Tappi’s adoption and cover some of the enormous expenses Bialys contributed to save his life.

So Bring Your Furry Friends & Join Us for Some Italian fun!

Support the Big 35

Support the Big #35
This year President & Founder of BWF, Erin, turns 35 and she is hoping to make it a very powerful number. Most of you know that she has dedicated her more recent years to helping animals with special needs, starting Bialy 5 years ago and currently Josh the Pitbull - Special Needs and Happy who is turning 3 in June. Hence the importance of 3+5.

She is asking that together we make 35 amazing by raising $3,500 for Bialy’s Wellness Foundation in the next 35 days. That means finding 100 of our generous friends, family and charitable social media followers to help by May 21st.

Please consider making a contribution at the following link and sharing our goal:
