Meet Skunk, a 6.5-year-old Shepherd Malamute Mix.
Skunk came to us after the shelter assisted the Sheriff's office with the seizure of 7 extra-large Malamute Shepherd mixes this summer. These guys were living in a tough situation, but we are excited to get to know them and find them new homes. 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! 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. Skunk 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.
