SAHS Fido Olympics – Companion Course

Think London is the only place you’ll see star athletes compete this Olympic season? Well think again! The San Antonio Humane Society is hosting the Fido Olympics; three weeks of competitive athletic challenges to determine which team will take home the ultimate prize, the Golden Biscuit!

The last event in the Fido Olympics was the Companion Course. Each doggie/human team followed the arrows around the course that was laid out for them. They had to weave in and out of trees and jump over benches. Each team did a great job, but one team finished the course faster than the rest. Javier from Team Labrador crossed the finish line in the fastest time and took home the golden biscuit for his team! Team Terrier took home the silver biscuit and Team Shepherd took home the bronze.

After three exciting weeks of competition, we are proud to award Team Labrador with the all-around, ultimate golden biscuit! Team Terrier took home the all-around silver biscuit, and Team Shepherd rounded out the event with all-around bronze. Thank you to all of our wonderful doggie competitors and cat coaches, and of course, our dedicated SAHS volunteers!

To see all of the videos and photos from all three events, please visit www.sahumane.org or facebook.com/sahumane. You can also visit all of our doggie champions and their Cat Coaches at the San Antonio Humane Society located at 4804 Fredericksburg Rd.

About San Antonio Humane Society

The San Antonio Humane Society is a non-profit, no-kill organization that has served Bexar County and its surrounding areas since 1952. We are not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States or the ASPCA. Every year, the San Antonio Humane Society shelters, medically treats, and rehabilitates more than 5,000 animals that have been injured, abused, or abandoned until they are ready for adoption. As an adoption guarantee organization, the shelter only euthanizes animals that we are unable to treat, have a condition that poses a significant threat to the other animals in the shelter or that have aggression issues. Through our adoption, volunteer, foster care, and educational programs we educate the public on the importance of responsible pet ownership, micro-chipping and spaying/neutering. In the near future, we plan to expand our ability to aid homeless pets by adding a shelter medicine hospital to our campus. Our mission is to protect and improve the lives of dogs and cats by providing shelter, care, adoption, rescue, spay and neuter programs, and community education.
