Why Participate?

Because you love animals and know that pets make our lives more fun, more meaningful, and more loving. POPP is an opportunity to celebrate the animals who enrich your lives, while generating support for pets who need people to love.

Plus, who doesn’t love a parade?!? Live entertainment, games, cool cars, and thousands of adorable animals of all shapes and sizes. What could be more fun than partying with your pooch, carousing with your cat, or raging with your reptile?

Pets = Love. Parade = Love. So, we ask: Why not participate and be among the first to experience Tucson's newest tradition!

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Pets give us their unconditional love. However, not all pets have someone to love. And some pet owners need occasional help to keep their companion animal healthy and happy. Pima Animal Care Center exists to help these pets and people. Annually, PACC helps over 19,000 pets find new furever families and has the best live outcome percentage of any large public shelter in the nation. Additionally, PACC assists people who need help for their pets, preserving 1000’s of families and saving these animals from the shelter experience. Your participation in POPP celebrates the pet(s) in your life and supports the pets in all our lives.
