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 Pierre the cat…

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

“Pierre is a handsome 2-3 year old gray/black tiger striped domestic short haired cat with white feet and chest.

Pierre was brought to the shelter along with his older brother, George when his owners arrived at their new Ocean City residence from Florida and found out they weren't allowed to have pets. They immediately needed to surrender them.
Even after his long trip, Pierre was friendly with the shelter staff and put up no fuss when examined. Pierre would make an excellent addition to most situations. He's playful, friendly and affectionate. He is good with children and other cats. Although he was never with dogs, it seems as though he would adapt easily."
