Fiesta® Pooch Parade Sponsorship Information

On April 24, 2021 we are celebrating the 22nd Annual Fiesta® Pooch Parade, hosted by Therapy Animals of San Antonio. The fun begins with the popular costume contest. Enjoy opportunities to watch well over a thousand people and their pooches, join the fun, visit others, work with your dog on socialization and fitness goals, visit local businesses at our sponsor booths and walk in the parade of pooches as it winds through the scenic, shady neighborhood of Alamo Heights.

Therapy Animals of San Antonio is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization whose primary mission is bringing people and animals together for healing. The generous support of local businesses and community members over the years has allowed us to serve the growing needs for human animal interactions in the San Antonio area. The programs offered by Therapy Animals of San Antonio positively impact people in area hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, schools, youth facilities and many other community organizations. We are currently partnering with several community-based and Veteran-based service organizations. In 2019, 106 of our members and Therapy Teams, (volunteers and their animals) gave more than 7800 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 conducted 34 presentations in 2019 throughout the community to educate the public about the benefits of human animal interaction.  

We have recently initiated our CARE (Crisis Animal Response) Program providing teams with enhanced training (FEMA, Human and Animal First Aid, CPR and crisis response techniques) able to respond to community disasters and crises across Texas. 

To meet our expanding requests for service, we need your support. Whether that support is financial or the gift of your time, you are appreciated and will help us make a difference! You can see details of the work we do in our Annual Report.
