Year Round ICAN Events
Throughout the year, ICAN hosts a number of events to help raise money for ICAN. These events allow us to share with others the impact our dogs have on providing greater independence to individuals living with a disability, and also preparing offenders to return to our communities better equipped to obtain a job and successfully reintegrate with their families.
Our annual events include Puppy Love Valentine's in which our dogs deliver hundreds of Valentine gift boxes to individuals throughout the greater Indianapolis area and they also do deliveries year round! In June and December, we have our special graduation ceremony at the Indiana Women's Prison, in which our dogs are officially placed with a new forever friend. Each October we hold our largest fundraiser of the year, Wine & Wags. We are also involved in a number of Dine Outs at local restaurants and most recently, had a special gallery exhibiting our dog art at Avalon Jewelers as part of Zionsville's First Friday.

Indiana Women's Prison
ICAN hosts a 1 l/2 hour presentation at the Indiana Women's Prison once a month. Attendees can meet the ICAN dogs in training and the handlers who train them. These sessions are a unique opportunity to hear a first-hand account of the impact the ICAN program has on the offender handlers and to see the dogs-in-training at work. You MUST register no later than two weeks prior to the date you wish to attend to allow ample time for security clearance. For further info or to register, please contact Joan at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 317.672.3860. The following is the 2015 If These Dogs Could Talk schedule:
September 22, October 27 and November 17th. There is no presentation in December.
