How ICAN Works

Dogs are amazing creatures. Their gifts to humanity are loyalty, love and service. For over a decade, ICAN has successfully been placing dogs into meaningful relationships with clients who need assistance with daily activities. We serve a variety of folks who desire independence and a high quality of life. Our assistance dogs help provide both.
