Grants and Resources for Classroom Pets

Last Updated: August 25, 2012

Pets in the ClassroomPets in the Classroom, a program of the Pet Care Trust, helps to establish healthy child-pet relationships at an early age by supporting responsible pet care in elementary and middle school classrooms across the country.

Kids benefit from exposure to pets in the classroom in ways that help to shape their lives for years to come. The Pet Care Trust supports teachers with educational grants, pet care tips, lesson ideas, classroom pet management, and more. 

Many school teachers have very limited resources for the support of classroom animals. That’s why the Pet Care Trust is sponsoring this program to help teachers support pets in the classroom through direct, no-hassle educational grants. You can obtain a grant for the purchase of new pets, pet environments or pet food and supplies for existing classroom pets.

The Pet Care Trust is a non-profit, charitable, public foundation. The purpose of The Pet Care Trust is to help promote public understanding regarding the value of and right to enjoy companion animals, to enhance knowledge about companion animals through research and education, and to promote professionalism among members of the companion animal community.
