Trinity High School in Euless to host pet fair
Each pet adopted from Trinity GAP is spayed or neutered, heartworm tested, and vaccinated.
The Trinity High School Girls Awareness Program (GAP) will host their semi-annual Pet Fair this Saturday, May 14th at Trinity High School in Euless. The Pet Fair will benefit the Trinity GAP Rescue program and the Euless Animal Shelter. Trinity GAP Rescue is credited with having drastically reduced the euthanasia rate at Euless Animal Services by providing assistance, fostering, and sponsorship for shelter pets.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is expected to draw hundreds of pet owners and pet lovers from across DFW. Planned activities include:
Low Cost Pet Vaccinations (10 a.m. - 1 p.m.)
Ask-A-Vet On Site
Pet Contests and Cake Walk
$5 Nail Clipping by House of Paws
The school is located at 500 N. Industrial Boulevard in Euless.
The mission of Trinity GAP Club is to give high school girls a positive outlet for their time and to show them positive alternatives for their lives. Working with the Euless Animal Shelter to save homeless pets is one way they do that. While some of the girls foster pets from the shelter in their homes, others go weekly to walk the dogs and take pictures of the new pets that have come in. They then post those photos, as well as photos of pets in GAP foster homes, on their AdoptAPet.com website.
Each pet adopted from Trinity GAP is spayed or neutered, heartworm tested, and vaccinated. The Pet Fair fundraiser helps offset these costs so Trinity GAP Rescue can continue to offer affordable adoption fees for the wonderful pets in their care.
Just this past week, the Trinity GAP program won the district Crystal Apple Award for the highest level of Adopt-a-School participation for a high school.
