Your furry friend can now be a Bark Ranger at San Antonio Missions! Follow the B.A.R.K. principles to earn the Bark Ranger status:

Bag your pet’s waste- Help keep the park clean by collecting and disposing of dog waste in outdoor trashcans.

Always leash your pet- Pets must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet.

Respect wildlife- It is important that you keep your dog at a respectful distance from any animals you may encounter, including other dogs.

Know where you can go- Pets are not allowed inside mission churches or the visitor center. Never leave pets alone in a car. Beware of heat.

WARNING: Do not leave animals unattended in your vehicle. They can die within 20 minutes in South Texas, where temperatures can reach 80 degrees by 9:00 a.m.
