Meet Russell, an 8.5-year-old male Labrador Retriever.
Russell is what the shelter calls a "frequent flyer" meaning he has been to the shelter more than 3 times. In the past Russell's owner has come for him but sadly they have chosen not to do so this time. Russell is considered a senior but he has the energy of a much younger dog. Russell loves to explore which is likely why he has been in the care of YHS before. He can have a few issues with focus but this is likely due to his confinement. Russell is very fun to be around and is love for life is contagous.

A Picture says 1000 words...right? While an animal's picture draws interest, the reality is that as a potential adopter most people would like as much information as possible about a pet. The Yakima Humane Society is an open admission shelter. What does this mean? Over 90% of the pets at the adoption center arrive as strays, no history of behavior or medical care is known. Adding a pet to your family is a big responsibility. Please research carefully and remember that adoption is life saving. Adopt Don't Shop.
NOTE: All pre-adoption questionnaires are subject to approval. Adopters must be 18 years of age. Entire families may be required to visit, including resident dog(s). 24-hour adoption holds may be placed on any animal (for approved adopters) with a non-refundable deposit. All dogs must leave with a collar and leash. All cats must leave in a pet carrier for their safety. Renters are required to have proof of landlord approval.
