This week we met Benjamin the cat...

Here's some information on Benjamin from the Humane Society of Ocean City...

"Say hello to sweet Benjamin! He is a seven-year-old neutered male domestic short hair. Benjamin was surrendered to us a few months ago and is still searching for his forever home.

He is a lovable, calm, and an extremely friendly companion. Something interesting and unique about Benjamin is that he is missing half of his tail due to being attacked by a dog.

He doesn't hold that against them and would still do fine in a home with dogs or cats. With Benny's laid-back personality he would do fine around children as well."

See the available Lite Rock Pets of the Week.

If you would like to visit Benjamin or need more information about any animal up for adoption at The Humane Society of Ocean City, call 609-398-9500 to make an appointment.
