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 canine 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. In 2019, 80 of our Therapy Teams, (volunteers and their animals) contributed more than 4500 hours serving our community. Facility visits improve the mental and physical health of local citizens in all age groups.

To meet our expanding requests for service, we need your support. You can see details of the work we do in our Annual Report.

The Fiesta® Pooch Parade is our major fundraising activity for the year. We are asking for your assistance in supporting our mission. One hundred percent of all donations go to the support of our local programs.
