A New Grants Program

J. McInnis Parent, volunteer...

Pets in the Classroom is a new grants program supporting responsible pet care in grammar 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. Our goal is to establish healthy child-pet relationships at an early age by supporting responsible pet care in grammar and middle school classrooms across the country. We know many public 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 grants. Pets in the Classroom grants are offered to public school Kindergarten through Sixth grade classes only.
Pets encourage nurturing, help build self esteem, teach responsibility and pets become friends! Classroom pets stimulate learning, and enrich the classroom experience. A classroom pet depends on you for its health, happiness and well being. Apply for your classroom pet grant today at www.petsintheclassroom.org

Thanks for the info on pets!! I've had a fish tank in my classroom for the last seven years. Even though fish are a little different than a mammal, they are still fun. Thanks again!!
