Nonprofit organization Saipan Cares for Animals will be closing down their animal shelter within the next week due to a decision made by the CNMI Zoning Board. While the Commonwealth Zoning Board did inform SCA of the need to halt their current operations by the end of the month, they have not mandated SCA to vacate the premises.

CNMI Governor Ralph Torres comments, “SCA, and the many volunteers that encompass the organization, provide an essential service to the community. He is committed to helping find a viable solution for SCA as they are currently the only organization that provides medical care for animals in the CNMI.”
