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 Ricky the dog...

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

"Ricky is a neutered male Shepard mix, ~ 1 yr old. Ricky has come from
Georgia looking for a forever home, having been picked up roaming-at-large
and went unclaimed by his owner. Almost out of time he was rescued and
eventually made his way to New Jersey.

Ricky is sweet, playful, and intelligent and will make an excellent
companion for almost any family type or size! He is a young, but calm and
gentle. Ricky enjoys walks and running in the yard, chasing balls (and
probably squirrels), and snuggling up next to you!

Ricky may need some house-breaking reminders, and all pooches and people
benefit from basic obedience training. He has spent time playing with other
dogs, is small and gentle enough for young children, though kitties may be
unknown to him.

If you'd like more information on Ricky or to meet him, please call or stop
in to the HSOC today! As always all of our animals are S/N, micro-chipped
and up to date with vaccines.
