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 Ginger the dog…

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

“Ginger is a female Boykin Spaniel (aka the “Little Brown Dog”), who is just under 2yrs old. A super-sweet and happy-go-lucky girl, Ginger is a shy but friendly pooch who is unfamiliar with domestic life. She enjoys snuggling, walks, and playing, though when she is feeling confident and secure. Highly intelligent, Ginger learns quickly and has an eagerness to please, having learned sit, (some) down, and walks okay on a leash.

Having come up from Georgia, Ginger was a likely a breeding dog, as she appears to have had a few litters already. She bears a thick, wavy, beautiful brown coat which matches her soulful eyes and fuzzy little ears! Ginger is looking for a quiet, not-too-busy home with no kids—too much chaos will be unsuitable for her; other dogs may be okay, though meet and greet is required (by apt. only); cats are unknown but likely okay.

Ginger needs to not be alone for extended periods of time, and would prefer if she were the princess! Empty-nesters or a retiredperson(s) would be ideal. Ginger is a calm girl, who really just wants to hang around with you, goof off, and get belly rubs! She needs patient folks, as she can be short on confidence sometimes, but she is HUGE on happiness and affection!."

If you would like to visit Ginger 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.

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.
