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 “Sam I Am" the dog. Sam is a 6-month-old wire haired terrier (similar to a Jack Russel Terrier). Here is some information on Sam I Am from the Humane Society of Ocean City:

Sam.I.Am was transferred from a high volume kill shelter. He is a very high energy pooch. He loves to interact and play with toys. Sam would do best in a mid-level energy home, & requires daily exercise (walking and playing).

Sam would benefit from social and behavioral training. He seems to be okay with other dogs, & is unknown how he is with cats.

If you would like to visit Sam I Am 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. They 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.
