The Pets in the Classroom Grant Program is Now Accepting Grant Applications
The Pet Care Trust’s Pets in the Classroom grant program is NOW accepting applications for the 2022-23 school year. Spread the word to other teachers!
The grant program provides funding for a small animal or pet supplies to Pre-Kindergarten through 9th grade teachers in both private and public schools who desire to introduce a pet into the classroom or who already have a pet in the classroom. Interested teachers are welcome to apply.
For those of you who have been awarded an initial grant in the past, there are Sustaining Grants available to help support your existing classroom pet, or add a new pet. Please remember that if you have moved schools, you should continue to use your same account, and just update your profile information. Each teacher is entitled to one initial store or initial rebate grant, and then a sustaining grant each school year after that. The grant applications are available from August 1, 2022 through June 1, 2023.
For more information, please visit our (FAQ’s) Frequently Asked Questions area on our website, https://www.petsintheclassroom.org/faqs/ If you do not find your answer there or have other concerns, you may contact the Pets in the Classroom Team at: 443-921-2825
PLEASE NOTE: There is only one grant that is available to Canadian schools and it is through PetSmart. When you select apply for a grant, make sure to scroll down and select the appropriate store/category. Please see the image below.
