In 2016, over 60 Athens businesses and individuals sponsored the event, which raised $4,500 for Athenspets, the all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping the animals at Athens-Clarke County Animal Control and to reducing pet overpopulation in the Athens area. Proceeds from this year’s parade will again benefit Athenspets.
