Do you have a soft spot for a furry friend? Is the window glass on the inside of your vehicle covered with nose writing? Does your best friend jump up and down when they see you (even if you've only been gone for ten minutes) and greet everyone else they meet with a happy wag of the tail? Then you're much more than just a "mom" or a "dad" to a companion animal. You're the type of person we're looking for. In fact, you may be looking for us, too.
Anyone interested in supporting Therapy Animals of San Antonio is more than welcome to join our group. You do not have to have an animal to join. There are many ways that you can participate and be an active member. Therapy Animals of San Antonio is an all volunteer, non-profit 501(c) (3) tax exempt organization. Your membership dues and donations are fully tax-deductible. Your participation in our programs and the Fiesta® Pooch Parade will add dimension to our membership.
