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 “Kaden",  the chihuahua mix. Eight-year-old Kaden is a neutered male who likes other small dogs, is used to a quiet home, but is good with people and children. Kaden would possibly be okay with a dog friendly cat..

Here’s how the Humane Society of Ocean City describes Kaden…

Kaden is a calm dog who loves attention. Even though he is used to a laid back lifestyle he does like to go for walks. Kaden was surrendered with is housemate, a female chihuahua, who was already adopted. Kaden would be a great dog for a senior looking for companion.

If you would like to visit Kaden 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. We 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.
