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 Sarah and Gracie the dogs. Here’s a little background info on Jelly Bean from the Humane Society of Ocean City…

"Sarah and Gracie are both 2 years old. Their owner could not afford their care. They have not been around kids, but would do fine with kids 10 and up.

Sarah is a Yorkie terrier mix. She is outgoing and happy. Loves to be on a lap!

Gracie is a terrier mix who is very shy and gets confidence from her buddy Sarah. She would enjoy a quiet home sitting next to her person. Loves being next to people she knows!"

If you would like to visit Sarah and Gracie 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.
