Designed to appeal to the entire family, whether they own a pet or not, this year's "Pet Pride" event also features a Furry Fiesta Pledge Parade to celebrate Cinco DeMayo and celebrate the upcoming opening of the Iowa Humane Alliance Regional Spay/Neuter Clinic in the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids Corridor. The Furry Fiesta Pledge Parade offers the opportunity for participants to help us raise pledges of support for Iowa Humane Alliance, win prizes and raise awareness about the importance of spaying or neutering your pets.
