Puppy Love Year Round

 

Puppy Love doesn't just happen on Valentine's Day at ICAN, it's now happening year round!

Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, celebration, retirement, baby or wedding shower, a holiday, get well, good cheer or even a  marriage proposal (yes, really! ...our dogs can deliver that ring for you!), our dogs in training are now delivering gifts and sloppy wet kisses all year round!
 

Puppy Love has brought smiles to so many throughout the greater Indianapolis area. Check out the photos below and at the bottom of the page for more!               

 
     

 

What is a Puppy Love Year Round Delivery (PLYR)?

What is PLYR? It's one of our special dogs in training making a special delivery for you!

Your delivery can be arranged to include a gift box designed by us, an item that is personally from you, or we can customize a delivery to fit your special occasion!

Deliveries are done by one of our dogs in training, which are all under 18 months. Unfortunately, we cannot always guarantee a young pup to do your delivery because puppies grow! But we guarantee you won't be disappointed with your delivery. All of our dogs are adorable, loveable, huggable and may even show off a bit by demonstrating some of the cool commands they are learning! 

What's Included in a Puppy Love Delivery?

Your PLYR delivery is as special to us as it is to your recipient. Each delivery has a beautifully handmade card to go with your delivery and a personalized message from you. Every delivery also includes a pack of ICAN's note cards, a freshly made cupcake or truffle, and a balloon for that occasion. If your friend is a big dog lover, we'll include dog treats and either a bandana or a treat pouch along with a special canvas dog art painting (in three sizes) artistically done by one of our dogs in training. Many of our handmade items, such as scarves, knitted hats, baby clothes, quilts, etc. are made by the women at the Indiana Women's Prison.

The following are some of the many items that can may included in your delivery. We are always getting new items from various businesses!

 

 

  

 

 

   

 

Special Puppy Love Deliveries for Businesses & Corporations

If you are a small business or part of a large corporation, puppy love deliveries can be a huge boost for your clients or employees. Whether it's celebrating your anniversary, extending a special thanks, or making it part of a special holiday or theme, you can't go wrong in making folks smile and feeling appreciated. Special delivery rates are available for business/corporate deliveries.
 
"To celebrate our 12th anniversary, we partnered with ICAN and had their puppies deliver gifts to our clients. It's great to support such an impactful organization like ICAN and our clients absolutely loved the unexpected treat of the dogs delivering cookies! It was a win for all of us, and we're excited to do it again."  - Shawn Curran, President, Curran Architecture
 

Below are some examples we have delivered for businesses (to their clients) in which their logo was placed on the cookie and a special box was designed for delivery:

    

 
  
 

''With our company's 15th year anniversary, we wanted to acknowledge partners who supported our success through those years. We didn't think we simply wanted this done with a party or a card. We wanted something very special to ensure it would be a creative and memorable experience for our partners. The Puppy Love deliveries through ICAN exceeded every expectation of what can be defined as "special"! Our business partners were taken aback by the cuddly fur balls delivering their box of cookies (and I might say that several partners totally forgot about the cookies during the delivery). Each partner commented on how this really made them feel special - and further solidified our working relationship. The only down side of a Puppy Love delivery is that work productivity goes out the window when you have the chance to cuddle with a puppy!

This was a wonderful way for us to say thank you to those we consider important to our business - and to broaden the awareness of the wonderful vision and dedication of ICAN, providing so much to so many people!''

- Denise K. Pierce, President of DKP

ICAN Handler's ''Give Back'' with their Heart in Art! 

Every year our correctional facilities do a day of dog art! The inmate handlers who train our dogs are always looking for ways to ''give back'' and support ICAN.  It's a wonderful experience for those involved and the dogs use their tails, noses, paws, ears and sometimes their heads (!) to create some of the coolest pieces! Dog art makes a special gift for Puppy Love deliveries, especially, if you are sending it to someone who just loves dogs. We have a lot of fun on dog art days and can't thank our dogs and handlers enough for putting their heart into their art!

Here are some of the dogs doing dog art with their handler and many examples of their art pieces!

 

           
     

The back of each painting makes your dog art canvas very unique. It includes the name and paw autograph of the dog who did the painting along with a photo of him/her with the handler:
