Fur Ball Gala 2023! Time to raise a glass and have a blast! - 10/21/23 • Details
Meet Duke, a 6.5-year-old German Shepherd Malamute Mix dog. Lucky and his 6 siblings arrived at our shelter after being seized by the Sheriff's department earlier this month. These guys have not had much exposure, so they are timid at first, but we know with the right home they are going to make someone excellent pets! At this time, we are in search of a home for Duke where he can be an only dog as he seems much more relaxed and happy that way. These dogs were living outside so we cannot guarantee they would be 100% potty trained at this time, however when they are taken out to go potty regularly, they do keep their kennels clean. Duke will need more work learning to walk on a leash and someone with patience to reassure him.
We always recommend testing all our dogs with any other potential family members prior to adoption to ensure the best outcome for all!
If you are interested in adopting this pet, please fill out an adoption questionnaire at www.yakimahumane.org and a staff member will contact you once your questionnaire has been received.
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 lifesaving. 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.
