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 Charlie O' Cheeks  the cat…

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

“Charlie O'Cheeks is a 4-year-old Black and white domestic short-hair cat.

He was trapped as a "feral' cat that was hanging around a house. He came into the shelter with an old collar that had to be cut off.

The staff cleaned him up and treated some wounds. He is now neutered, up to date with his vaccines and micro-chipped.

With the help of volunteers, Mr. O'Cheeks has turned into a very sweet, lovable cat. He would most likely be fine with other cats and older kids. No dogs please, he is definitely not a fan of them."
