Pet of the Week: Olive Gives Kisses and Likes Belly Rubs
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 “Olive " the dog.
Here’s a little background info on Olive from the Humane Society of Ocean City…
“Olive is a 7 Year old, brindle coated, spayed female Whippet mix.
Olive is originally from the island of St. Croix. She is house trained, full of playful antics and, of course, loves to give kisses on your nose. She would prefer to be the only pet princess in the home.
She has been in the shelter for over 2 years. Because she has a fear of thunder and a high prey drive(bred to hunt), that has kept her in the shelter. She is looking for her forever home".
If you would like to visit Olive 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.
