The Busey Bank adopted HSCI again as one of their charities. Busey collected items for our Pet Adoption Center at their bank locations during June. Then, on Saturday June 28, Busey hosted "Cause For Paws" and a Dog Wash at their Empire / Fairway location, in the south parking lot.
Busey Bank also hosted radio stations WJBC, B104, and WBNQ, along with having snacks and door prize drawings. We brought out some of our pets to show off. As a bonus this year, the first dog wash of the season occurred in their employee parking lot.

2003's event had showers off and on.
Busey's inside lobby was home to HSCI cats, kittens, and a rabbit for a few hours. As you can see they were quite a popular attraction.
Busey Bank employees and HSCI volunteers combined efforts on washing dogs.
This little dog received the full treatment.
A bath made this dog feel wonderful. He looks quite happy.
Our dog wash at Busey was set up on the side of the bank and served as our kick-off to the 2003 summer.
