National Pet Week May 4th - 10th!

This year, PAWS and Beautify CNMI! will be celebrating National Pet Week from May 4th until May 10th. During this week, volunteers will be giving humane education presentations to various schools around the island and promoting the humane treatment of animals.

If you are interested in learning more about our volunteer efforts, please contact Rose Callier at

And, on May 17th, PAWS and Beautify CNMI! will be hosting our Second Annual Best of the Worst Dog Show! Categories include:

  1. The Fattest;
  2. The Most Uneven Ears;
  3. The Best Belly Dragger (shortest legs);
  4. The Most Disobedient;
  5. The Booniest;
  6. The Most Like a Movie Star; and
  7. The Best of Show.
Participating in the event is free, though all participants must have on a collar and leash. And, if your dog has mange, we ask that you not bring the animal to the dog show. Rather, we urge you to take your pet to either one of the island's veterinarians for treatment.

Entry forms and waivers can be downloaded at Please submit your entry form to Katie Busenkell at The waiver must be signed at the event in the presence of one of our volunteers.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact PAWS at or at 285-PAWS.

PAWS and Beautify CNMI! would like to thank our 2008 National Pet Week Sponsors: Costco, PEW, Beautify CNMI!, DLNR, and Angil Design, Inc. Thank you for your generous donations and making this year's celebration possible!
