Become a Volunteer Veterinarian with Saipan Cares!

SCA does not have a full-time vet on staff. We rely on our volunteer veterinarians for spay/neuter clinics and other surgeries. It is a great opportunity to explore an island paradise in the heart of the Pacific Ocean while making a difference in the lives of local animals! We are currently seeking veterinarians who are interested in coming to work with SCA for one to three months.

COVID-19: Saipan is an extremely low risk area for COVID-19 and there is currently no know community transmission occurring. Everyone entering the island is required to quarantine upon arrival for 5 days. (Updated 1/6/21)
