Sponsor a Puppy

You can bring hope... Sponsor a Puppy!

When you sponsor a service puppy in training, you bring hope to people on both sides of the leash! Hope for a person living with a disability and hope for the inmates who train them. We invite you to be a part of this pup's incredible journey. ICAN has two types of Puppy Sponsorships; one that is done by an individual and the other sponsorship is one done by a company.  Your gift will help ICAN provide 75% of the veterinary costs for your pup in training for two (2) years.

Note: If no puppies are available at the time we receive your sponsorship, your name will be placed on a waiting list.
