“Many people and children came over and cuddled the dogs and puppies,” Cody said.

The SCA has been participating in community events to promote pet adoption, she added.

Dogs and cats ready for adoption are at the Saipan Cares of Animals shelter on Pendan St. in As Gonno. (

“These dogs and cats need a home. They are all really sweet pets and great with children,” Cody said.

SCA volunteer Luke Gillies said those who want to adopt pets must fill out a form. “We just want to know where they live or and make sure if they have a yard for the dogs,” he added.
