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.

This week we met Rucca the dog...

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

"Rucca is a super sweet 4 year old Staffordshire Mix. She came to the HSOC because her owner was unable to keep her at the place that he was staying.

She is well behaved and knows many basic commands. Rucca would love nothing more than to romp around and play in the yard and then come inside and get her cozy on.

She is that big dog who thinks she is small so she would most likely do best in a home without small children

Please help give Rucca her 2nd chance at the loving home that she deserves."

If you would like to visit Rucca or need more information about any animal up for adoption at The Humane Society of Ocean City, call 609-398-9500 or stop in any day between 11a-3p.
