Adoptable Pet of the Week: Yam

Say hello to Yam, the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week.

This 5-year-old pup loves hot dogs, peanut butter and cheese. And he is more than ready for his forever home!

Yam is up for adoption through the Animal Welfare League of Arlington. He is currently in foster.

His friends had this to say about him:

Yam is a sweet, five-year old boy that would make a wonderful addition to any home. He is affectionate and well-behaved and often just wants some extra love and attention.

He also loves to explore, whether it’s on long walks or at home! He is a big boy with an even bigger heart.

Yam’s favorite things are: long naps, snuggles, and cheese
But he’s not so into: loud noises
His special talents are: sit, shake, and fetch
His perfect day would be: sleeping next to his human and then playing with his stuffed shark.
If Yam was an ice cream flavor, he would be: sweet potato and brown sugar because he’s quirky but also the sweetest little boy. It’s also kind of like his name!

Important facts about Yam: Yam appears to be potty trained and rarely barks. He loves his treats and picks up on rules and tricks very quickly! Yam has not met children/cats/other dogs whilst in our care. Our team is happy to discuss these topics during your virtual appointment.

Is Yam a match for you? He’s definitely ready to meet his new family!

It is the decision of the United States Department of Defense (DoD) Washington Headquarters Services (WHS) to implement the Proposed Action: the 2024 Pentagon Reservation Master Plan Update (Pentagon Master Plan) as the framework to guide future decisions regarding land use and infrastructure at the Pentagon site and Mark Center. The Pentagon Master Plan aims to provide an update to the existing conditions at the Pentagon and Mark Center and presents projects and revisions to land use categorizations that will address the specific needs to reduce the Pentagon’s environmental impacts and advance sustainability, security, and resilience. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review has been completed through preparation of a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate environmental impacts arising from implementation of the projects. WHS has concluded that no significant impacts to the human or natural environment will result from implementation of any projects, and recognized negative effects will be reduced by adherence to standard best management practices, applicable permit and consultation conditions, and standard operating procedures. This decision is further documented in the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) signed on March 20, 2024.

This notice announces the availability of the FONSI to implement the 2024 Pentagon Reservation Master Plan Update.

For further information and to request a copy of the Final EA or FONSI, please contact Brian King, Environmental and Sustainability Program Manager, WHS/Facilities Services Directorate/Standards and Compliance Division/Environmental and Sustainability Branch; (703-614-3658 or [email protected]). Please include “Pentagon Master Plan Final EA and FONSI” in the subject line.
