If you've already created a profile, go directly to the Choose your grant type  page.


You must review and agree to all terms below before applying for a grant.

ONE Pets in the Classroom grant per teacher, per school year is permitted. Teachers who apply for more than one grant in a school year may be disqualified from the program.


Pets in the Classroom grants are offered to Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade classes only in both public and private schools. Due to funding limitations, home school settings and high schools do not qualify for grants at this time.

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.

Only small animals that reside in the classroom are eligible for this program.  Dogs, cats and other larger house pets do not qualify.  Science projects such as caterpillars/butterflies, worms/composting and chicken egg hatching projects are not considered pets in the classroom and do not qualify for this program.

Grant approval is at the sole discretion of the Pet Care Trust.


Grants are not transferable.


By completing the grant application form, you affirm that you AND your principal agree to all terms listed above

How to Apply

The Pet Care Trust, in partnership with our industry retailers and pet product suppliers, offers the following Pets in the Classroom grants. When deciding on which grant to choose from, carefully consider what type of classroom pet you are seeking, and where you like to shop for your pet supplies.

The grants offered by our retail partners are limited to the animal types listed on their grant page.  If you are seeking a classroom pet not listed on one of the retailer grants, or if you choose to shop at a different pet store other than one listed to the left, you can choose the REBATE grant.  This is a rebate program that allows the teacher to make purchases then submit receipts for reimbursement.

Teachers can apply for ONE of the eight grant programs listed on the "Choose Your Grant Type" page.
