Our program is now accepting applications for the 2016-17 school year. Just fill out the application and tell us about yourself, your students and your classroom.
We’ll get back to you with a decision within 3-4 weeks. If you qualify, we’ll send a certificate or coupons (depending on grant type) directly to you for the support of your classroom pets within 4-6 weeks from the date of approval.
That’s all there is to it.
The following conditions apply:
• Pets in the Classroom grants are offered to Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth grade classes only in both public and private schools.
• These grants are intended to support pets or aquariums in the classroom for the purposes of teaching children to bond with and care for their pets responsibly.
• The welfare of the small animals involved is of paramount importance.
• These grants must not be used for the purposes of research or experiments of any kind.
You may only submit ONE APPLICATION per school year.
Teachers who apply for more than one grant in a school year may be disqualified from the program.
Teachers who have previously received a Pets in the Classroom grant are only eligible to apply for the Sustaining Grant.
