The Pets in the Classroom grant program was established by the Pet
Care Trust to assist teachers in obtaining or maintaining classroom pets. The program provides grants to Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade teachers in both private and public schools for the purpose of teaching students responsible, long-term pet care at an early age. Studies have shown that caring for pets has a positive effect on children, improving school attendance and teaching children responsibility, as well as encouraging nurturing and building self-esteem.
