About Me


About Me PicMonkey Collage 2Hola!  My name is Telma and I am a mommy, wife, and dog rescuer.  The most important things to me in this world are family and dogs. My love for dogs started since I was a child.  I would always cringe at the site of stray dog and wish that I could save them all.  I grew up and started to pick up strays and find them homes.  I moved to San Antonio, Texas three years ago and was shocked at the amount of stray dogs that roam the city.

I started fostering for an organization that has set out to make San Antonio a No Kill City.  I just knew that I could do more.  Last fall, I joined a group of wonderful women and started San Antonio R.O.C.K.S.  We have to this day saved over 150 dogs.

This website is to highlight all things that are important to me: family and dogs.  At The Fire Hydrant is a place for great stories, great products, and the everyday things that make life so much fun.  I am a mother of a four year old little girl and three crazy pups.  I would love to teach my daughter to treat all animals with kindness.  This blog is dedicated to her.  She’s taught me that love comes in many forms.


Hola! Mi Nombre es Telma.  Mi adoración por los perros empezó desde que era una niña.  Siempre me pesaba ver a los perros callejeros y siempre quise poder ayudarlos.  De adulto, siempre recogia a perros que me encontraba y trataba de encontrarles un hogar.  Cuando me mude a San Antonio me impresiono la cantidad de perros callejeros que rondaban la ciudad.

Me inscribi para ser madre de crianza para un perro, para una organizacion que su meta es hacer de San Antonio una ciudad donde no practican la eutanasia.  Despues pense que podria hacer mas y me junte con un grupo de mujeres para empezar nuestro albergue de perros.  San Antonio R.O.C.K.S. ha salvado mas de 150 perros hasta la fecha.

Esta pagina es para resaltar todas las cosas que son importantes para mi: La familia y los perros.  At The Fire Hydrant es un lugar para buenas historias, buenos productos, y todas las coas que hacen la vida divertida.  Soy madre de una niña de cuatro años y cuatro hijos caninos muy loquitos.  Me gustaria enseñarle a mi hija a tratar a todos los animales con respeto y amabilidad.  Este blog esta dedicado a ella.  Ella me a enseñado que el amor viene en muchas formas.
