Bruce Memorial Fund for Saipan Cares

This fund was set up in honor of Bruce, one of many puppies treated at Saipan Cares for Animals. Bruce was just a few weeks old when he stopped breathing during a routine procedure to help his badly broken back paw heal. He was loved very dearly and will be missed very deeply.

Saipan Cares for Animals is a non-profit animal shelter that also provides low cost animal medical care to the residents of the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas. It is one of only two animal shelters on island, the other being the city run animal control shelter which does not offer medical services. The only vet on island is too costly for a large percentage of the population, so for many Saipan Cares is the only option. 

The shelter also takes in sick and abandoned animals, including puppies and kittens that are not yet weaned and have to be bottle fed every few hours. Saipan Cares volunteers take these babies home and raise them, in the hopes that they can find a forever home when they're older. Many of these animals, despite the care and attention and love they receive, simply don't make it.

The reality of life for animals in the CNMI is harsh. There are no animal protection laws, little education on pet care, and a lack of affordable spay and neuter services which has resulted in a large population of strays. Saipan Cares stands alone against the odds, but despite everything has made a huge impact here over the past several years.

Please donate, in honor of Bruce the puppy, and in honor of the dedicated volunteers of Saipan Cares for Animals who treat the animals of Saipan like their own children, and whose hearts break every time they find an animal they can't save. Your donations will go straight back into the shelter to buy food, medicine, and other supplies, as well as to help bring in volunteer vets who can provide advanced services and surgeries.
