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 “Toby” the dog. Toby is a 1-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier.

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

“Toby (a.k.a. “Tobi-Wan-Kenobi”) is an American Staffordshire Terrier, ~ 15 months of age. He is a neutered male, all light brown with matching eyes and nose. His most adorable physical feature would be his ears…first thing you notice about him!!

He is a very well centered dog, nothing seems to faze him. He never gets too excited or despondent. He is likely good with other dogs & cats & kids (10-12 & up visit depending).

Toby hails from Georgia, having made the arduous journey to NJ with three other pooches, he arrived in Ocean City on this September 1st. Whether you want a companion for yourself, your family, or also for other animals friends you have…Toby may be just the doggie you’re looking for! C’mon down and meet him today!!”
