Fur Ball Gala 2023! Time to raise a glass and have a blast! - 10/21/23 • Details
*Nemo has being a very good boy at the adoption center and loved getting a second photo shoot in the green grass. Nemo has met a number of dogs at the shelter and is good with most but really just wants to hang with his handler and play with toys. Like most Husky's Nemo is talkative and thinks that the world is his playground.
Meet Nemo, a 1-year-old male Husky mix.
Nemo is an outgoing and active dog. He weighs in at 56 pounds at this time and has some leg to him. He would make a great hiking companion. Nemo is likely to enjoy the outdoors, he does okay on his leash and would love to go for a walk with you today. Nemo likes to keep a clean kennel and might do well in the home with a kennel training approach. He is sure to love some couch snuggles if you allow it. It was reported to animal control that found Nemo was not fond of the finders own dogs. A meet and greet with all K9's in the home is required prior to adoption.
Please do your breed research before applying to adopt Nemo. Huskies and Husky mixes are very special dogs with unique requirements. They often have the inclination to roam and can be great escape artists. Huskies need to be active and do best with adopters that can help them burn extra energy with fun training. They can have strong prey drives, and while every dog is different, many huskies will chase cats and livestock. Grooming is also an important part of their routine, brushing them several times a week can help prevent their undercoat from matting and keep them looking their best. Huskies are a fun, active breed that many have fallen in love with over the years, but please keep their breed needs in mind when considering adding one to your household.
This pet is available for adoption on 2/3/23 and is located at the Yakima Humane Society. If you recognize this animal please contact the adoption center at 509-457-6854.

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.
