Calling all teachers! Add a pet to your classroom this year!
On August 1st, Pets in the Classroom will once again begin taking applications for the 2019 – 2020 school year! This amazing grant program provides teachers financial support to purchase and maintain small animals in their classroom – anything from a fish, hamster, gerbil, guinea pig or parakeet.
Note that this is not a first-come-first-served program – ALL teachers that qualify for the program will receive a grant! They do ask that you carefully consider what type of pet you want for your room as well as district guidelines and even suggest that you have your students vote on what type of animal they would prefer!
The Pets in the Classroom grant can be applied for every school year; however, if you have previously received the grant you will only be eligible for a sustaining grant to help provide for the classroom pet you have already purchased. If you no longer have the original pet, you can also use the sustaining grant to purchase a new pet and supplies.
Teacher Pre-K through 9th grade in both public and private schools are eligible to apply for the grants. Head here to learn more about the program!
