What better a way to teach children about different animal species than
to have the animals in the classroom? Not only can kids learn about
them, their development and biology, but they can learn how to care for
them as pets and, most of all, to respect them. A non-profit,
charitable organization, The Pet Care Trust, has been promoting public understanding of pets since 1990, and one of its newer programs, Pets In The Classroom, is trying to get more classrooms involved.
