8th Annual Gracias San Antonio

Facebook Live Art Exhibit

Pre-K 4 SA invites you to the 8th Annual Gracias San Antonio Facebook Live Art Exhibit and Online Art Auction to benefit Therapy Animals of San Antonio!

Gracias San Antonio: Children Are Citizens Project is grounded in the belief that children are not just future citizens, but also are citizens of the city in the here and now, with the right to express their opinions and participate in the civic and cultural life of San Antonio.

Gracias San Antonio began in November with the children’s participation in a program-wide election. Therapy Animals of San Antonio was selected as this year’s beneficiary non-profit organization to receive the 8th Annual Gracias San Antonio Auction proceeds.

Throughout the year, children and families engaged in City Explorations with their teachers to visit different places around San Antonio. Local artists joined children in a virtual or outdoor classroom to create authentic art pieces using a variety of artistic mediums to express the children’s perspective of their city.

Join us in supporting our children and Therapy Animals of San Antonio by attending our Facebook Live Art Exhibit and by bidding on this year’s amazing art pieces!

TASA SPECIAL 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 and pet nutrition.

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 previously 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. You never know where we will show up! 

Event Calendar

 Board Meetings:  The Board meets monthly on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM. Meetings will be virtual until further notice.

The TASA President sends a Zoom invitation to all members before the meeting and all are welcome to attend.  Please contact him at pres@therapyanimalssa.org if you have any questions.
