The 2019 El Rey Fido fundraising competition is officially over! We are happy to announce that the participants raised over $100,000 for the dogs and cats at the San Antonio Humane Society. Leading this group of successful fundraisers and new official Fiesta® Royalty: Happy Happy Hazel (El Rey Fido XVII), Sophie Batchelor (Princess of the Food Bowl), Bette Mid-grr (Duchess of the Chew Toy), Grayson Bleu (Duke of the Fire Hydrant), and Maximus Miller-Trynoski (Knight of the Royal Court). We are very thankful for all who supported everyone's fundraising efforts and we look forward to Fiesta 2019!

El Rey Fido began in 2002 as a feel-good spin on the already long-established Fiesta Royalty title of a similar name: Rey Feo. But what began as a pun has since evolved into an annual fundraising competition that raises tens of thousands of dollars each year for countless needy dogs and cats at the San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS).

Who will be El Rey Fido XVII? The fundraising competition’s top fundraising dog will be bestowed the honor of the crown, with four runner-ups joining the Royal Court.

It all leads to Fiesta® San Antonio and the SAHS’s El Rey Fido Coronation, an official Fiesta® event, in April where San Antonio’s top dogs have the opportunity to be dressed in true royal attire (velvet, sequins, and all).

Don’t miss your chance to support homeless pets in your community and become a part of seventeen years of SAHS Fiesta tradition!
