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 “Grady" the cat. Grady is a 1.5 year-old black and white long-haired cat, who is on a special RX diet.

Here is some information on Grady from the Humane Society of Ocean City:

"Grady Is friendly, playful and good with cats or kids. Unknown with dogs but probably okay.

He was brought to us because he had been having accidents in the house for 6 months. Instead of the owner taking him to the vet, he surrendered him to the shelter insisting that it was a behavioral issue.

Shelter Staff immediately recognized him having trouble urinating and took him to be examined by the HSOC vet. Further diagnostics showed he had crystals in his urine which was causing him to have the accidents that the owner thought was behavioral.

If he had taken him to the vet the owner would've found out he had a serious medical issue that could've simply been rectified by using a higher quality or prescription food.

Due to his condition going on for so long untreated, Grady now has to be on a special prescription food that helps to ensure a healthy urinary tract so this issue won't return."
He is a beautiful boy looking for attention and love.

If you would like to visit Grady or need more information about any animal up for adoption at The Humane Society of Ocean City, call 609-399-2018 or stop in any day between 11a-3p.

To adopt from the HSOC you will need one form of identification, which includes your name, permanent address and proof of ownership (i.e., local tax stub). If you rent, written approval from your landlord is required as well as personal identification.The adoption fee is $50.00 for cats or kittens and $85 for dogs, adults and puppies.

They accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and debit cards. Checks are accepted upon management’s approval. All adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, microchip if requested, free first vet exam, and all necessary vaccinations through the first year. Adoption applications are available at the shelter.
