Every Thursday morning at 7:15 AM 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 “Bree” the dog. Bree is an 8-year-old cairn terrier with special needs.

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

"Bree is a female Cairn terrier, ~ 7-9 yrs of age, who came to the HSOC on Sept. 1st 2016. When she arrived, she was brought in a large plastic tub container, which was filthy.  She was missing ~90% + of her hair, covered in filth, and could hardly walk. The previous owner claimed it was their daughter’s dog and had to be surrendered as she was going away to school. Bree was found to have untreated flea allergies, a grain-food allergy, and other problems. After much TLC, Bree has been nursed back to reasonable health, having recovered much of her hair and has healthier skin, though she trundles around the hallways and offices of the shelter with determination to follow her best friend and shelter assistant manager Courtney everywhere, or find another tennis ball, or insist on yet another meal (she eats a TON for such a small bugger!).
 Bree LOVES tennis balls (especially yellow ones), food, and Courtney. Bree is quite fond of people and is intelligent, inquisitive, outgoing, personable, and vocal. She can be insistent about her toys or food, but is never mean…sweetest little pooch you could meet! She does have a truly engaging personality!
 Bree is an extreme special needs case. She requires dedicated care as she must receive multiple medications multiple times per day each day, a specific medicinal bath every three days, and specific food, all for the rest of her life. She is pad trained (though occasionally misses slightly), she can walk, err… trundle is more like it, though she is slow and cannot navigate any type of stairs, etc.
Bree is not available for adoption, but may be available to be fostered if the situation was correct and all necessary aspects of the household are able to meet her needs. If interested in meeting Bree or donating to her life-long care, please stop down at the HSOC!"

If you would like to visit Bree 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.
