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 Droopy the dog…

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

“Droopy is a male Basset Hound, ~6 years old. Having made the trek from Georgia to New Jersey, he is a happy, bumble-buddy who has a fairly typical hound-dog personality. Droopy is friendly and outgoing, loving to meet new people and pooches.

A well-mannered fellow, Droopy is playful and energetic, but not rough or rammy in nature. He is happy to romp around the yard or to snuggle on the couch and munch some nom-noms…both would be ideal in his book!

Droopy is suitable for children of all ages and other pets as he likes to play with other doggies, though he can be pushy with other dogs sometimes, not mean…just bossy! Cats are unknown. Droopy would be ideal in a home with a moderately active family, even better if you have Bassett experience or hound dogs in general.

If you’d like to meet Droopy, call or stop in to the HSOC today, we are open 7 days/week 11am-3pm. All of our animals are S/N, UTD on basics, micro-chipped and receive 10% lifetime discount at out Veterinary Center."
