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 “Gus” the cat.

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

“Gus is a large, handsome black and white tuxedo cat with striking copper eyes. He is 2 years old and is good with dogs, cats, and children 12 and up. Younger children may be ok visit depending.Gus was surrendered when his
owner realized that she wasn't able to give him the time he deserved.

 

 

He's friendly, playful and quite comical but does have a scaredy cat side to him that comes out in unfamiliar situations. He resided in one room most of his life and will require some patience and understanding during the transition into his new home"

If you would like to visit Gus 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.

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.
