Rangeview is known to rescue students from failing classes and saving those who may not be able to graduate, but who would have known that it is also known for helping rescue animals?

Ms.Govern is the sponsor of the Animal Rescue Club; she started the club two years ago. This year the club has 20-25 members and is still looking for more recruits.

Anyone with an interest in saving the animals is welcome to join at any time! The more the merrier! There is no limit on the number of members,” Govern says.

Govern started the club for her dog named Cypress who was 24 hours from being killed at Houston’s BARC animal shelter due to overpopulation of the pets.  Because of him, she created the club to provide an opportunity for students to be able to volunteer and help save more animals.

“ I love it!” says sophomore Jordan Clanton, member of the Animal Rescue Club. “I can easily balance my busy schedule while being a valuable member to the club and I think the club is really helping our animal shelter community.”

The club raises money for local animal shelters while also helping animal lovers get some volunteer hours at local shelters.The club’s last event to raise money was the Animal Rescue Club Fall Fair which many students had attended.

Meetings consist of an agenda of when the next volunteer opportunity is, and we spend time brainstorming fundraisings events to get people involved,” said Clanton.

Junior Imani Williams said, “I actually didn’t know about the club, but I’d probably join it.”

Interested students can join the Animal Rescue Club by attending any meeting.The club meets the second Wednesday of every month at 3:30pm in room 121.
