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 "Rocky" the dog…

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

“Rocky is an 18 month old, (N) male Yorkie mix. Rocky is highly intelligent, he knows sit, down, stay, come, leave it, gimmie-a-kiss. He is also very interactive and loves to run and play outside with you! He is a curious fellow and likes to explore.

Rocky can be cautious with strangers (people and dogs) at first, but warms nicely with food & affection. Rocky requires an experienced owner(s) with no children living at home. He may be okay with other dogs (meet n greet required).

Rocky was an owner surrender having come from a home ill prepared to raise a puppy. Rocky would benefit from some formal training and would be an excellent addition to any home willing to take the time and effort to meet his needs."

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