Classroom Grant Program
Pets in the Classroom is an educational grant program that provides financial support to teachers to purchase and maintain small animals in the classroom. The program was established by the Pet Care Trust to provide children with an opportunity to interact with pets—an experience that can help to shape their lives for years to come.
We will be accepting applications until June 1, 2020 for the 2019-20 school year.
If you have received an initial grant in any previous year, you will only be eligible to apply for a $50 Sustaining Grant for the upcoming school year. To apply, you will need to log into your account and select the sustaining grant option.
Due to school closures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, all pets in the classroom should be in the home of the teacher, student, or another person who is familiar with and can best care for the pet’s needs.
For more information on how to properly care for many of the animals our grant program supports, you can reference our animal care sheets: https://www.petsintheclassroom.org/pet-care-sheets/.
