Improving Cats’ Lives!

POP Cats’ mission is rooted in helping cats by inspiring people to participate in the animal welfare community and by supporting feline organizations around the United States in meaningful ways.

A portion of Attendance Tickets and Exhibitor Fees goes directly into funding our participating animal non-for-profits. Additionally, we are committed to providing cat organizations with a platform to gain exposure, educate on their heartfelt causes, collect funds, conduct adoption drives, and recruit volunteers.
