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 Petey the dog…

Here is some information on Petey from the Humane Society of Ocean City:

“Petey is a 4-year old pit bull mix. He's great with children and would make an excellent companion. He was surrendered to us due of the unfortunate passing of his owner. Petey is a lovable dog that will become part of your furever family.

Petey is neutered, up to date on his shots, micro chipped and will have a lifetime discount to our veterinary center. Please contact one of our adoption counselors to set of a visitation today. "
