I am very blessed to have a loving home, warm bed to sleep in, nutritious food and the best vet care available, however not all dogs/cats are so lucky. I believe that every dog/cat matters! They deserve a second chance and I hope that the money I raise will make a difference in the lives of homeless pets in San Antonio. - Happy Happy Hazel
El Rey Fido began in 2002 as a feel-good spin on the already long-established Fiesta Royalty title of a similar name: Rey Feo. But what began as a pun has since evolved into an annual fundraising competition that raises tens of thousands of dollars each year for countless needy dogs and cats at the San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS).
How to Join the SAHS El Rey Fido Fundraising Competition:
Who will be El Rey Fido XVII? The fundraising competition’s top fundraising dog will be bestowed the honor of the crown, with four runner-ups joining the Royal Court.
It all leads to Fiesta® San Antonio and the SAHS’s El Rey Fido Coronation, an official Fiesta® event, in April where San Antonio’s top dogs have the opportunity to be dressed in true royal attire (velvet, sequins, and all).
Don’t miss your chance to support homeless pets in your community and become a part of seventeen years of SAHS Fiesta tradition!
