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 Scout the dog…

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

“Scout a 10-month-old lab mix, black in color. He was transferred from another NJ shelter that needed our help. Scout was turned into the shelter when his previous owner could no longer care for him due to health reasons. He is playful, energetic and loves belly rubs. He walks well on a leash and would make a great companion.

Due to his age and his energy level, we don't recommend with children under 10 years of age. Scout is neutered and up to date with all his vaccines. He comes with a microchip and a lifetime discount to our veterinarian center. So please come out and see him today! "

If you would like to visit Scout 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.
