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 Nina and Sparky the dogs…

Here is some information on Nina and Sparky from the Humane Society of Ocean City:

“Nina is an 8-year old Rat Terrier mix and Sparky is an 8-year old Chihuahua mix.

They have lived together for a few years and have bonded so we are interested in Nina and Sparky be adopted together. They like to go for walks and play in the yard. They are also happy to hang out on the couch. They both have a good play level for their age. They would do best in a home with a quiet family. While they would do fine with kids we would recommend an older family due to their energy level."
