January 11, 2017 - Therapy Animals of San Antonio is honored to have been chosen by The Greller Gallery to receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of art in their OFF THE TRAIL exhibition by Paige Holland. The exhibit dates are January 12 - March 31. Ms. Holland's goal is "that the happy colors and positive energy found in this exhibition help to convey a similar feeling of warmth and love that the Therapy Animals of San Antonio provide their clients.”
