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 “Jerry” the cat.

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

“Jerry is a handsome orange & white domestic short-haired cat, who is a little over one
year old. He has been at the HSOC since Halloween 2016, having been found
stray behind a local business. Jerry is intelligent and outgoing, commonly
initiating interactions between himself and staff members!

Though he may not be a big snuggler now, a good home and a little patience should have him purring in your lap in no time! Jerry can be a bit mischievous as he is a
young, curious fellow; he likes to explore areas and objects! He likes other
kitties, and would do well to have a cat buddy to pal around with. Jerry
also enjoys playing with toys and enjoying some fine catnip now & again!
Dogs are probably okay as housemates, possibly even friends; children should
be older, 12 and up would be good.

If you think Jerry would be a good addition to your home, please come down and see him today!
