Nonprofit Pet Care Trust has joined forces with therapy dog organization Pet Partners to launch Dogs in the Classroom, a pilot program that provides interactions with registered therapy dog teams in approximately 100 classrooms across the country through the 2021-2022 school year.
Research has shown many social, behavioral and academic benefits of student interaction with pets in the educational setting, including improved academic performance, increased reading competency and reduced school-related stress.
The program complements existing program, Pets in the Classroom, an educational grant program that provides funding to pre-kindergarten through 9th grade teachers for a small animal or pet supplies.
