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 Ozzie the dog...

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

"Ozzie is a 7-year-old miniature dachshund. He came in from another shelter after he was surrendered by his owners.

Ozzie has a history of back problems so he is a slow walker and doesn't move around a lot. He would love a quiet home by himself or with another quiet, laid-back dog. He is a sweet boy that loves his snuggles.
