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 Scout the dog…

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

“Scout is a neutered male lab-mix, about 2.5 years old, he is an energetic, playful fellow who loves to play fetch and receive belly rubs!

He is a smart boy, knowing sit, down, stay, paw, fetch, and leave-it. Scout is an owner surrender from a busy household, he lived with children (7yrs & 10 mos) and a guinea pig pal!

Scout likes other dogs and people, we are not sure about cats.  House-broken, crate-trained, and familiar with using a doggie door, Scout is looking for a family with time and energy for playing and socializing! If you think that's you, call or come see Scout today at the HSOC!"
