Trinity GAP Club is an all-girl's club that functions through Trinity High School in Euless, TX. The mission of Trinity GAP Club is to give girls a positive outlet for their time and to show them positive alternatives for their lives. One of the community service projects that the Trinity GAP Club is involved in is to work with the Euless Animal Shelter. In helping the shelter, we sponsor as many animals as we can to help get them adopted and find good homes for them. Find out more at www.trinitygaprescue.org. Trinity GAP Rescue is the 501c3 partnering with the GAP Club.
Trinity GAP Rescue (TGR), founded in 2012, evolved to support The Trinity GAP Club (Girls Awareness Program), founded in 2003, as a girls club at Trinity High School in Euless, Texas. The mission of the Trinity GAP Club is to give these high school girls a positive outlet for their time and show them positive alternatives for their lives. Their community service project is volunteering with the Euless Animal Shelter and sponsoring as many animals as funds allow to provide spay/neuter, shots, and other vetting costs for the pets. Since a high school club has limitations as to the support they can provide the Euless Animal Shelter, TGR was formed as a 501c3 charitable organization to support the GAP Club and provide services beyond their capabilities. TGR and the GAP Club meet at the Euless Shelter once a week to interact with the pets and obtain information and pictures for networking sites to help these pets find homes. Adoption fees for these shelter pets recycle back into the program to continue vet funding for all shelter pets. Adoption fees do not even cover basic vet services, and there are always unforeseen medical expenses, so TGR and the GAP Club host adoption events and fund-raisers such as sales of baked goods, tamales, candy and candles and also host 2 large annual events on campus, a Pet Fair and a Walk-a-Thon. All funds collected by The GAP Club and TGR sponsor vetting and/or boarding for homeless pets. There are no funds for pets who come into the shelter sick or wounded. All vet fees are paid through donations to TGR and the GAP Club. TGR and The GAP Club work hard to raise funds to keep adoption fees low and competitive to help these pets find homes quickly since this is a municipal shelter with limited space. The Trinity GAP Club and TGR have made a huge impact in lowering the euthanasia rate of the Euless Animal Shelter by 80%. This percentage is misleading as it includes all pets, both adoptable and unadoptable. In the past few years, no adoptable pet has been euthanized. The Trinity GAP Club has won many local and state awards including “The 2009 Youth Volunteer of the Year”. Trinity GAP Rescue is proud to partner with the Trinity GAP Club!
