Classroom Pet Grant






I love pets!  At home we have 4 dogs - a Chihuahua, a Pekingese, a German Shepherd, and a Great Dane {are you getting the visual?}, 1 cat, and a Chinchilla.  

When I found out I would be teaching Science...Life Science, no less...I knew I wanted to have a classroom pet!

I've been a little hesitant since the cost can be a little overwhelming in the beginning. 

However, thanks to Pets in the Classroom, I just found out there are grants available which allow for purchase of a classroom pet!!!  How awesome it that?

The program is through Pet Care Trust.  

I just filled out the grant application and should hear back from the program within 2 weeks!!!

My fingers {and toes} are crossed!  I"ll keep you posted....

  1. thanks for sharing! I also applied. My students are working on a service learning project that focuses on preventing animal abuse! Having a class pet would be perfect!
