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 Jewel the cat...

Here's some information on Jewel from the Humane Society of Ocean City...

"Jewel is a 2-3 year old domestic short-haired cat. She came into the shelter in March with her kittens. All of her kittens have been adopted and now it’s her turn.

She is a very sweet cat when other cats are not in view. Jewel truly does not like other cats and will make it known. She has no problem with dogs as long as they aren't in her face. Do you have a cat free home that needs a playful young girl?

Please contact one of our adoption counselors for more information. All cats are up to date with vaccines and have been spayed or neutered. The HSOC also provides each pet adopted by us with a 10% lifetime discount to our veterinary center."
