On April 27, 2019 we are celebrating the 21st Annual Fiesta® Pooch Parade, hosted by Therapy Animals of San Antonio. The fun begins with the popular costume contest. Enjoy opportunities to watch and work with your dog, visit local businesses at our sponsor booths and walk in the parade of pooches as it winds through the scenic 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 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, schools, and youth facilities. We are currently partnering with several community-based and Veteran-based service organizations. In 2018, 80 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 benefits of animal therapy.
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.
As in the past, we will feature supporters in the following categories.
