The El Rey Fido (ERF) Coronation became an official Fiesta event in 2014, but the ERF tradition has been carried on since its humble beginnings in 2002. The ERF Coronation is held annually during Fiesta San Antonio and is the culmination of months of vigorous fundraising by local participants and their canine pets. All funds raised benefit pets at the San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS). Each year’s top-fundraising dog is crowned El Rey Fido (The Doggy King/Queen), with four runners-up joining the ERF Royal Court. The ERF Coronation is carried out in true festive Fiesta spirit, from folklórico dances to vivid royal canine attire. Every year, participants from San Antonio and the surrounding area come together to make ERF another successful and beneficial year for our community’s dogs and cats.
The San Antonio Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization that has served Bexar County and its surrounding areas since 1952. The SAHS shelters, medically treats and rehabilitates thousands of dogs and cats every year. 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. We serve as one of the largest dog and cat adoption organizations in San Antonio, Texas, helping to decrease the community’s large pet overpopulation problem in a humane manner. As a local nonprofit, we are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). We do not receive funding from the federal government, the HSUS, or the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
Admission is free.
