There are so many ways you can get involved and support ICAN.

Volunteer with Us

Our volunteers are essential in helping us enrich lives by uniting service dogs, people with disabilities, and inmates. You can volunteer to assist us with furloughing, whelping, office tasks, events, and more.

Sponsor a Puppy

Sponsor individuals and companies get to play an active role in a puppy’s journey of becoming a service dog. You’ll also be able to name the puppy you sponsor — and help us cover their vet costs.

Attend an Event

Whether you’re an event volunteer, donor, or guest, your support will help us continue educating others about our mission, training service dogs, and celebrating our clients’ accomplishments.

Sponsor a Team

When you sponsor an ICAN client and their dog-in-training (a Client-Canine Team), you'll help them bond with the dog and celebrate their newfound hope and independence.

Sponsor an Event

When you sponsor an event table at Wine and Wags, your loved ones will hear inspiring stories from ICAN clients and handlers whose lives have been changed by our service dogs.

Fundraise for ICAN

Whether you have a bake sale, host an ice cream social, or plan a tournament, the proceeds from your event will help our service dogs, clients, and handlers continue to succeed.

Host a Tails to Tell Event

If you’ve been deeply touched by testimonials from clients and handlers about how our dogs have brought them hope, we can help you share these stories with your friends and coworkers during Tails to Tell.

Send a Puppy Love Delivery

A Puppy Love Year Round (PLYR) delivery is the perfect gift for birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, and more! All proceeds support our training and placement of service dogs for those with disabilities.

Donate to ICAN

Whether you can give financially or donate supplies, your generous gift will help us continue to empower people with disabilities seeking independence and inmates ready to find purpose.


Anyone living with a disability should be able to lead an independent, happy life.

Since 2002, it’s been our purpose to support and encourage people by training and providing service dogs for individuals living with a disability.

We also partner with dedicated inmate handlers who move beyond their mistakes and find hope — all by focusing on helping others and training our sweet dogs.

When you support ICAN’s mission, you’re helping us:

Train, place, and care for service dogs

Create stability for children and adults with disabilities

Empower people to overcome challenges

Prepare inmates for successful community reentry

You can help us

bring independence and safety

to individuals with disabilities — and a second chance for our inmate handlers.
