Leash on Life - April 2005

The Leash on Life event at the Pet Adoption Center was an informational and fun fundraiser to benefit the pets of HSCI. WJBC afternoon host Jim Williams spent the day in one of our dog cages living the life of an HSCI dog!  Jim was able to go for walks, eat, see our vet, and more. Jim, along with his co-host and WJBC Pet Feature host, Beth Whisman, broadcast from 2:00 - 6:00 pm at the Pet Adoption Center. A big thank you goes to Jim and Beth for helping the animals at HSCI!

During the day, Jim had many pets join him --- including Milkdud the rabbit, a trio of kittens, and several cats and dogs. Jim was a great sport. HSCI appreciates his willingness to do this event to benefit our pets.

Throughout the day, Jim felt quite at home in his cage. He did do some non-dog activities like reading the newspaper and making calls on his cell phone.
