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.

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. 

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.

The Kindhearted Kids Program gives educators a complete five-week curriculum that puts core value lessons into action by connecting both the hearts and minds of children.
