Pet Legacy Program

Honor your beloved pet by sharing your memories to help others!


The Two by Two® Pet Legacy Program is a beautiful and extraordinary opportunity to share your cat or dog's life with a child. When you enroll in the Pet Legacy Program, your pet will become part of the Kindhearted Kids Character Education Program, which helps children ages 7-9 build strong character and become better citizens.

 Pet Legacies are available for 1 year, 3 years, or Forever. These options signify the amount of time that your pet will be in the Kindhearted Kids Program as one of Two by Two's "adoptable pets." If you choose 1 or 3 years, you will have the option to renew your legacy. The Forever Legacy remains in the program FOREVER, no renewal needed!

What to Expect

ENVISION... a 2nd grader excitedly opening up a cardboard pet carrier to find an adorable stuffed dog or cat that resembles YOUR furry friend peering up at them! With awe, they quickly open their Pet Journal to learn all about YOUR cat or dog! Throughout the next five weeks, this child takes on the role of a pet parent and practices being responsible, respectful, and appreciative of their new pet (YOUR PET!), other animals, and each other.

The goal for each child is to become a compassionate, responsible, and empathetic person who respects all living creatures.

Once you have submitted your Pet Legacy donation, you will receive an email requesting information on your pet (how you found your pet, their personality traits, medical history) so that we can create a unique Pet Profile that will be printed in the corresponding Pet Journal. You can also find the Pet Legacy Information Form here.

We would also love to have a photo of you and your pet to share on our website and social media! Click here to see other Pet Legacy pets and bios.

It is so neat to see how excited the kids are to get their pets from Two by Two. For some kids, this may be as close as they get to the joy of a real pet of their own, and it is such a unique way for them to experience kindness and compassion. It was also a very cool way for me to share the memory of my 'once in a lifetime pet,' Grover.
