TASA Events

Therapy Animals of San Antonio has several special events each year for members and their families. Click on the event name below to see photos from the event.

In the spring we get together at a local park for our Animal Crackers Picnic. We enjoy good food and fellowship and play games with our dogs.

During the summer we have had “summer camp”, a series of monthly in-service sessions where we learn anything from doga (yoga with your dog), to canine massage, to pet estate planning.

Our Annual Meeting combined with a Blessing of the Animals are in the fall. The Annual Meeting starts with fellowship and a catered lunch followed by a report of what we’ve done throughout the year. It is topped off with the announcement of the year’s Therapy Animals of San Antonio awards for outstanding therapy teams and supporters. Prior to lunch a local minister offers blessings for our wonderful animals who bring healing and joy to so many people.

We have also enjoyed attending the annual San Antonio Rampage hockey team’s Pucks and Paws game as well as the WNBA’s San Antonio Stars Hoops and Hounds game. Our dogs get their own seats and follow all of the action in the arena or maybe just take a nap.
