Classroom pets offer so many valuable learning opportunities. That’s why PetSmart partners with the Pets in the Classroom Program to offer grants for teachers.
A grant from Pets in the Classroom can help you get one of these pets at minimal cost:
Grants are available to public and private school teachers in pre-K through 8th grade classes.
Guinea Pigs may jump up and down quickly, in behavior known as "popcorning"

Guinea Pigs need food and supplements with vitamin C, because they don't have this vitamin naturally
Goldfish can't close their eyes but can sleep with their eyes open
Goldfish have been kept as pets for more than 1,000 years, dating back to ancient China
