Pets in the Classroom Needs Your Support

Pets in the Classroom, a grant program sponsored by The Pet Care Trust, provides educational grants to teachers in grades Pre-K through 8 to purchase new pets, pet environments or pet food and supplies for existing classroom pets. Teachers can obtain a grant or coupon for the purchase of a classroom aquarium through an online application process and direct, hassle free grants. The Pets in the Classroom program offers grants up to $150.00 for new pets and pet supplies. Also, teachers can apply for a sustaining grant of $50.00 to purchase additional supplies for current classroom pets.

Kids benefit from exposure to pets in the classroom in ways that help to shape their lives for years to come. Pets encourage nurturing, help build self esteem, teach responsibility and pets become friends! Our goal is to establish healthy child-pet relationships at an early age by supporting responsible pet care in grammar and middle school classrooms across the country.
