Animals in the Class grant program, which has formerly been offered to Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade teachers, will be broadening its reach. For the first time, instructors in 9th grade class will likewise be qualified to apply!. Starting August 1st, grants will be offered to Pre-Kindergarten through 9th grade teachers in both private and public schools who prefer to present a pet into the classroom or currently have a family pet in the class with funding toward a little animal or for family pet supplies. We hope to accommodate other high school grades in the future, but are attempting to work within our spending plan constraints and grow at a sustainable rate.
