I'm Sophie Batchelor and I was saved. You may not be able to tell by looking at me....but I was mistreated at a young age and was rescued from owners who were abusive and neglectful. In fact, my first owners decided they wanted to get rid of me and a groomer at Petsmart took me. Luckily, she worked in dog rescue along with some other nice people and they called my future Mom, Sharron. I am now in my Fur-Ever home. My mom, Sharon, went to the groomer to pick me up after I had been abandoned.


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).

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!

Get your dog on the road to Fiesta® Royalty!
