A few facts about Pets in the Classroom:
- Since we began accepting grants for the 2013-2014 school year (July 22), we have issued over 11,000 grants.
- We issued more grants in August than in the entire first year of the program in 2011-2012
- Over 34,000 grants have been awarded since the program began, reaching nearly 1.7 million kids (average of 50 per class due to multiple classes in each middle school classroom).
We are well on our way to our goal of introducing 5 million children in 100,000 classrooms to pets and the benefits they provide! Thank you for your support! Please help us to continue to touch the lives of kids by helping us spread the word. Or, if you interested in supporting the program financially, you can donate as well!
