Our sweet dog, Buzz, is running for El Rey Fido 2020 and would love your support! Please consider a gift to the San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) to support his campaign – no gift is too small or too big! El Rey Fido is an annual fundraising competition to raise money for homeless dogs and cats at the SAHS. It began in 2002 and became an official Fiesta® San Antonio event in 2014.
We are forever grateful to the SAHS for saving Buzz's life and bringing him into ours! Buzz was rescued from an abusive situation and wasn't putting weight on his right front leg. X-rays revealed his body was riddled with small bullet fragments, one of which shattered his elbow. His leg was beyond repair, so to improve his quality of life, they amputated his right leg and provided physical therapy so he could regain mobility. Buzz is a survivor and doesn’t let his injury hold him back!
We had no intentions to adopt a dog. I was at the SAHS to oversee a photo shoot with El Rey Fido 2019 for The Charity Ball Association Rotogravure magazine. As we were setting up, a SAHS volunteer walked out with the most precious three-legged dog! He said Buzz had just gotten out of physical therapy and this was his first day that he was available for adoption. I have never had a dog my entire life, but it was love at first sight and as soon as I heard his story, I knew this was my dog!
Buzz is running for El Rey Fido to help the San Antonio Humane Society care for more animals like him until they find their forever homes. Your donation will be used to make sure every animal who comes through their doors gets food, shelter and above all else, care until they find their new families. And every dollar is a vote for Buzz for El Rey Fido 2020! Viva Fiesta! Viva El Rey Buzz!
