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 Sadie the cat…

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

“Sadie is an adorable, petite, solid gray and white domestic short haired female cat. She is approximately one-year-old.

Sadie was abandoned outside and managed to find her way to a couple that takes care of a feral cat colony. They monitor their colony with cameras and noticed a cat they've never seen before. They wanted to do the responsible thing by getting her examined, dewormed, tested for contagious diseases and spayed.

They arranged for our vet clinic to take her as soon as they caught her. This was when it was discovered that Sadie wasn't a feral cat at all. She was a loving, affectionate house cat that somehow ended up outside. Further examination by our veterinarian also showed that her back leg had been broken at one time and was never taken for vet care.

At this point, her leg has healed on its own but isn't perfect. She gets around fine but will always have a limp. Sadie is extremely affectionate and seems as though she would be a good fit for most households.

Sadie would likely get along with other cats but dogs are unknown. However, she most likely would be fine in time. She also seems like she would be good with children of any age, visit depending. Please consider Sadie if you're thinking of adopting!"
