Humane Society of Central Illinois

Pet Parade - May 2006

The Humane Society of Central Illinois moved its Pet Adoption Center from 3001 Gill Street, Bloomington, to 423 Kays Drive, Normal, on Tuesday, May 16, 2006. As part of our move and celebration, we moved our pets in style with an informal Pet Parade!  To all the volunteers and everyone who helped with the Pet Parade, we offer a big THANK YOU!

Cats are notorious for not liking car rides. Wrigley and Addison must be wondering what in the world is happening on this unusual day at HSCI.
