Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $125 and in-kind grants of pet store discounts to USA and Canada PreK-9 public and private school teachers to purchase classroom pets, or to help cover the costs of current pet maintenance. Funding is intended to provide children with the experience of bonding with and caring for their pets responsibly.

Three types of grants are available:

- Store Grants (choose one of 6 participating retailers)
- Rebate Grants ($75 for small animal; $125 for fish/reptile/amphibian)
- Sustaining Grants ($50 yearly for maintenance of current pet)

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, you can choose the Pets in the Classroom Rebate grant. This is a rebate program that allows the teacher to make purchases and then submit receipts for reimbursement.

Please note: Expired certificates or coupons will not be accepted and grants are not transferable.

Pre-Application Information:

Before you apply, make sure you know your school district’s regulations as to which pets are allowed in the classroom. You may only submit one application per school year.

The Foundation accept grants from August 1 through June 1st each school year. Grants are NOT first-come, first served. If you meet the qualifications, you will receive a grant,

Many teachers mistakenly think they have a better chance of receiving a grant if they apply early; however, they sometimes end up having to switch their grant to a different animal because of allergies and other factors they were not aware of before school started. It’s best to wait until you are sure that the animal is the right fit for the classroom before you apply.
