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 XXI? The fundraising competition’s top fundraising dog will be bestowed the honor of the crown, with four runner-ups joining the Royal Court (Prince/Princess of the Food Bowl, Duke/Duchess of the Chew Toy, Duke/Duchess of the Fire Hydrant, and Knight/Maiden of the Royal Court).
It all leads to the SAHS’s El Rey Fido Coronation, an official Fiesta® event, on April 22, 2023 where San Antonio’s top dogs have the opportunity to be dressed in true royal attire (velvet, sequins, and all).
