MEET OUR 2024 El Rey Fido Court


From Left to Right: Thunder, Knight of the Royal Court (Clinton Rodgers), Tootie, Duchess of the Chew Toy (Dorian Reid), Bou, El Rey Fido XXII (Larry & Melissa Rogers), Gixzr, Princess of the Food Bowl (Amber Dunithan), and Mushu, Duke of the Fire Hydrant (Cynthia Chi). 


 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 XXII? 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 Water Bowl, Duke/Duchess of the Squeaky Toy, Duke/Duchess of the Puppy Paws, and Knight/Maiden of the Regal Kennel).

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

Our Mission is to protect and improve the lives of dogs and cats by providing shelter, care, adoption, rescue, spay/neuter programs, and community education.

The San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization that has served Bexar County and its surrounding areas since 1952. The SAHS shelters, medically treat and rehabilitate thousands of dogs and cats every year. Many of the dogs and cats in our care have been abused, injured, surrendered by their owners, or found as strays. As a no-kill organization, every treatable pet in our care stays in our care until they find a home or necessary placement with another no-kill organization. No pet in our care is ever euthanized to create space. Thousands of dogs and cats in San Antonio and its surrounding areas are saved from euthanasia every year due to the mission and practices of the SAHS.


As an El Rey Fido (ERF) Coronation sponsor, you will be among an exclusive group of organizations that are committed to helping the San Antonio Humane Society's (SAHS) continued mission to protect and improve the lives of dogs and cats in our community.
