It's time to get ready to Fiesta! Therapy Animals of San Antonio, an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization whose primary mission is bringing people and animals together for healing, invites you and or your business to participate in our 19th Annual Fiesta® Pooch Parade, an official Fiesta® event, on April 29, 2017. The parade is a 2.6 mile walk that winds through the scenic neighborhood of Alamo Heights. In addition to the walk, there are pre- and post-parade festivities and performances.
This parade is the best opportunity for pooches and their families to join in the Fiesta® celebration and learn about the wonderful pet-friendly businesses in the San Antonio and surrounding areas.
The generous support of local businesses and community members over the years has allowed us to meet the ever-growing needs of animal-assisted activities and animal-assisted therapy in the San Antonio area. The programs offered by Therapy Animals of San Antonio positively impact people in area hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, at-risk youth facilities, and schools, as well as Veteran-based organizations including the Warrior and Family Support Center. Through the first eleven months of 2016, 63 of our Therapy Teams (volunteers and their animals) gave more than 6000 hours serving our community. Facility visits improve the mental and physical health of local citizens in all age groups. StoryTails, our literacy program, helps under-performing elementary students improve their reading skills and build their self-esteem. We also conduct presentations throughout the community to educate the public about the human-animal bond.
As we continue to grow our programs, it becomes more vital to have backing from businesses in the community. You will see details of the work we do in our Annual Report.
We will feature supporters in the following categories.
