What a glorious celebration we had at the El Rey Fido Coronation on Saturday, April 5 at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio! Our emcee, FOX29’s Morning News Anchor and co-host of Fox News First, Monica Taylor addressed the crowd and graciously introduced our 2014 El Rey Fido Court for all to see. One by one they adorned the stage in their gorgeous Grr-robes ready to take on their ambassador role for the SAHS and our El Rey Fido XII was crowned by 2014 Rey Feo, Jimmy Green. With food and refreshments on hand provided by the GHSA, canine companions and their owners in the Fiesta mood and great entertainment from the Danzavida De San Antonio Dance Company, all who attended truly enjoyed their morning with royalty!
Our ERF Coronation was definitely a sight to see! If you think your canine companion is royal, join the 2015 ERF Fundraising Competition on Monday, October 27!
We are saddened to share that Duncan, our reigning Duke of the Ever-Present Fire Hydrant, passed away in September. He was not only a big, handsome and loving Great Dane, but also a goofy guy with a heart of gold. Named after Tim Duncan from the San Antonio Spurs, Duncan was known as a gentle giant who played a vital role in helping to raise over $16,000 for the SAHS pets. We’d like to thank the Havelka family for giving us the opportunity to know the Royal Duncan.
