Every Thursday morning at 7:15am on the Lite Rock Morning Show, the Humane Society of Ocean City brings in the new Lite Rock Pet of the Week.

If you are thinking about adding a pet to your family, please consider adopting from the Humane Society of Ocean City, a no-kill shelter recognized as one of the nation’s top ten animal shelters.

All of the animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped before adoption. All animals also receive an Alumni Card which entitles them to a 10% lifetime discount for veterinary services at the Humane Society of Ocean City clinic.

This week we met “Aries” the cat.

Here is some background of Aries from the Humane Society of Ocean City...

Aries is a 1.5 year old black/brown/orange tortoise shell DSH cat. She is playful and affectionate. She and her sister,Sassy,were surrendered to us in October 2015 after their owner was evicted from her rental property.

Sassy was adopted right away and is doing wonderfully in her new home. Unfortunately, Aries was not so lucky. She is stressed in our cat room and often won't show well to prospective adopters.

This is not a true indication of her personality. Shelter life can be overwhelming to a cat that has never experienced any other pets (besides her sister). Please don't let this deter any one from visiting with Aries.

The HSOC staff would be happy to bring Aries into another room for a one on one meeting for any serious adopters. Aries would prefer to be the only cat in the house hold. Dogs may be okay. Older (12 and up) or no children would be best.

We're sure that Aries would be on her best behavior in her new home. Someone just needs to give her a chance.
