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 Thomas the cat...

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

“Thomas has been here about a year and a half. He is a very big boy at about 18 pounds.Thomas is 7-years old. He would do great with other cats. He may hide from kids at first but with the proper introduction he should warm up to them.

He has interacted very well with some of our smaller shelter dogs and would do fine with them or a large dog if properly introduced."
