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 Gator the dog....

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

“Gator is a male Blue-nose American Staffordshire Terrier who is 2- years old. Weighing nearly 80 lbs, he is a large fellow with a heart as big as he is! He was abandoned by his previous owner after they were evicted.

He is a sweet boy who loves spending time with you, doing pretty much anything. He enjoys walking the neighborhood, playing in the yard, fetch, tug, & maybe even a dip in the kiddie pool! Gator also loves to snuggle up like a little guy, snoozing the afternoons away with you on the porch. He is an engaging and personable guy, who needs daily interaction (and belly-rubs).

Gator is looking for a home with energetic, active people who are experienced with dogs, even better if with his breed. He is not ideal for living with small children. He may be okay with other dogs, though meet and greet is required and by appointment only. Cats are unknown and not recommended. Gator is a smart fellow, already knowing sit, stay, down, and paw.

If you think your home is the place for Gator then please call or stop down to the HSOC today.
