ICAN's Annual Puppy Love Valentine's

2017 will be our sixth year for Puppy Love Valentine's and it continues to get bigger & better! 2016 was a huge success in which nearly 700 gift boxes were delivered throughout Indianapolis. Each year we include special items in our boxes and come up with a few surprises. Some of the items for 2017 Gift Box will include an assortment of baked goodies, a treat from Endangered Species Chocolate, a 6x8 dog art painting, a ten pack variety of ICAN greeting cards with beautiful photos of our dogs in training, hand made heartshape candle holder Three Dog Bakery biscuits, ICAN note pad plus more! Like last year, we are offering a Doggy Valentine Gift Bag as another option to deliver along with our gift box for those who had some four legged canines in need of some Valentine love!

Nearly 100 volunteers help plan and deliver the gift boxes. Yellow Cab of Indianapolis once again will be providing transportation for many of our volunteers; the handlers in our training program are preparing products and getting the gift box items ready and a number of businesses are providing items to make our gift box special. We are deeply grateful to these folks and extend a HUGE thank you to the following businesses for their awesome support in making 2017 Puppy Love Valentine's a HUGE success!
