Charlie's Acres' Virtual Class Pet Program includes:
- An adoption certificate, photos, and information about your new class pet.
- A series of 4 video calls with an Animal Caregiver and your chosen class pet, learning all about this animal, their friends, and how we care for them.

One of the best ways to help animals is by leaving them off your plate! Check our PETA's Kids Guide to Going Vegan for tips.
You can also help rescued animals by raising money for your local sanctuary. Here are some fundraising ideas:
- Start a Facebook Fundraiser
- Ask for donations instead of gifts for a holiday or birthday
- Sell arts and crafts or lemonade on your street
- Ask people to pledge money per mile that you run
- Design a t-shirt and start a fundraiser with Bonfire
- Clean out your old toys and clothes with a yard sale
