Duke is Lovable and Goofy – Pet of the Week
Every Thursday morning at 7:10 am on the Lite Rock Morning Show, the Humane Society of Ocean City introduces 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.
This week we met Duke, the dog.
Here's some information on Duke from the Humane Society of Ocean City:
"Duke is a big, goofy coonhound mix that is around 6-years-old. He loves to go on walks and run around the yard. He would love to be your jogging, hiking, and/or camping partner.
Duke was surrendered to the shelter when his owners decided they didn't have the time for him. He does well on walks with other dogs but would prefer to live alone.
He cannot be trusted with cats, unfortunately. Older kids would be fine due to his exuberance."
If you would like to visit Duke or need more information about any animal up for adoption at The Humane Society of Ocean City, call 609-398-9500 to make an appointment.
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 $65 for cats and $325 for dogs under 6 months; $225 for dogs from 6 months to 7 years; $125 for dogs 8 years and over.
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, and all necessary vaccinations through the first year.
