Application cycle opens for Pets in the Classroom grants - Colorado Springs Gazette

Teachers have the choice to get a pet via among the program's participating shops-- Petco, Petsmart, Pet Supermarket, Pet Supplies Plus, Petland, and Petland Discounts - or to buy their pet dog through a neighborhood animal shop through a rebate grant..

Previous grant recipients are not qualified to get funding for a brand-new classroom pet, yet are welcome to make an application for the sustaining grant, which supplies as much as $50 to keep an alreadying existing class pet.

Classroom pet dogs are shown to aid in boosting school attendance, motivating supporting, developing self-confidence, promoting compassion, teaching duty, stimulating understanding and enriching the class experience.

With 8 different types of grants, each instructor has the possibility to decide on which grant corrects for him or her through a grant application on the Pets in the Class internet site

Pre-kindergarten through 8th grade instructors in both personal and also public schools which desire to introduce a pet dog into the classroom or currently have an animal in the class are eligible to use.


The Pet dogs in the Classroom grant program will start accepting applications Saturday for the 2015-2016 school year.

The program was established by the Pet Treatment Depend on.
