This year’s El Rey Fido fundraising competition was a close and exciting one! We are overjoyed by the involvement of all our canine contestants and their human companions. In total, all 2017 participants raised over $63,000 for the dogs and cats at the San Antonio Humane Society!
Pictured here is our 2017 El Rey Fido XV and Royal Court (from left to right): Duke of the Chew Toy, Andy Wheeler; Knight of the Royal Court, Levi Aguirre; Princess of the Food Bowl, Hope Elizabeth; Duchess of the Fire Hydrant, Sammie Green; and El Rey Fido XV, Olivia Stein;
The weather may have driven us indoors, but it didn’t stop our Royal Pooches from storming through the crowds to receive their honor as El Rey Fido XV and the 2017 Royal Court. Over $63,000 was raised for the dogs and cats at the San Antonio Humane Society thanks to the determined efforts of these fundraising dogs and we are exceptionally grateful! We are ecstatic to welcome Olivia, El Rey Fido XV; Hope, Princess of the Food Bowl; Andy, Duke of the Chew Toy; Sammie, Duchess of the Fire Hydrant; and Levi, Knight of the Royal Court to 15 years of El Rey Fido Royalty.
Thank you again to our sponsors: Grand Hyatt SA, VCA Animal Hospitals, Mr. W Fireworks, and PetCo for helping us to make this event possible and Rey Feo LXIX Fred Reyes for presenting El Rey Fido XV with her royal crown. Also a big thank you to Adam and Jenny in the Morning at Magic105.3 for presenting our Coronation!
Be sure to follow El Rey Fido XV and her Royal Court as they continue their media tour through San Antonio and catch them as they join their fellow canines during Next Saturday’s Pooch Parade. Viva Fiesta! Viva El Rey Fido!
