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 Lizzie the dog.

Here's some information on Lizzie from the Humane Society of Ocean City:

"Lizzie is an energetic older gal at 11-years old. She was surrendered to a shelter in North Jersey when the owners had an infant and didn’t want her anymore.

She does well with other dogs at her speed, no puppies for her.

Lizzie is working on her weight problem and will need an owner that will keep working with that. She also would prefer a home that is quieter and laid back with a yard and a few walks a day."

If you would like to visit Lizzie 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.
