Beautify CNMI! Animal Welfare Committee

The first meeting was held for Beautify CNMI! Animal Welfare Committee on February 22, 2007 at Cafe on the Park. It was a good turn out! Thanks to all of you who came out and contributed to the discussion on how to remedy the island's animal-related problems.

The following issues were discussed:
  • Responsible pet ownership;
  • Educating the public through the media;
  • Dead and roaming animal pick-up;
  • Building and opening a shelter;
  • The effects that animals have on our environment and communities;
  • Volunteer veterinary clinics; and
  • Laws and ordinances that relate to animal ownership.

These issues were introduced for discussion. People were asked to brainstorm and come up with ways to tackle these issues.

If you have an idea that you would like Beautify CNMI! Animal Welfare Committee to address, please send it to Katie Busenkell at All comments and concerns are welcome.
