Therapy Animals of San Antonio supports a greener San Antonio.  Do consider ways on how you can make SA a cleaner environment by simply reducing your energy use at home (https://residential.savenow.cpsenergy.com/home) or reduce vehicle pollution by sharing a ride, or if you're not bringing a dog, taking the bus to our event www.viainfo.net. And remember, please pick up after your dog wherever you are.
