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 Suzette the cat. Suzette is a 3-year-old black and white tuxedo cat.

Here’s a little background info on Suzette from the Humane Society of Ocean City…

“Suzette is a stunning 3-4 yr old large framed blk/wht tuxedo cat. She was left in a apartment when the tenants moved out. A security guard found her and brought her to the shelter.

She was very untrusting of human intentions and would often become a bit temperamental. She has come a long way in nearly the year she's been at the shelter. We are sure she would thrive in the right home.

Suzette would prefer to be the only pet in a quiet home. She's is vocal and playful. She can easily be won over with treats and catnip. Suzette will require some patience and understanding in her new home but will be a forever loyal companion in return."

If you would like to visit Suzette or need more information about any animal up for adoption at The Humane Society of Ocean City, call 609-399-2018 or stop in any day between 11a-3p.

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 $50.00 for cats or kittens and $85 for dogs, adults and puppies. We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and debit cards. Checks are accepted upon management’s approval. All adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, microchip if requested, free first vet exam, and all necessary vaccinations through the first year. Adoption applications are available at the shelter.
