Did You Know Petland Provides Classroom Pets for Teachers?

March 15, 2022

Research has shown that students interacting with pets in the educational setting has social, behavioral and academic benefits. Classroom pets can reduce school-related stress, boost reading competency and enhance academic performance overall. 

For young children, taking care of pets from a young age helps instill social and emotional skills. This process also enables children to develop a sense of responsibility and feel sensitive to others outside of themselves, boosting their confidence levels too. 

This is exactly why Petland stores are part of the initiative to help teachers receive a pet for their classroom.
