Donate to Train Service DogsTraining a service dog takes a lot of time and resources. In fact, it costs $25,000 to prepare a service dog for his or her important work. To see a breakdown of those costs, please visit Ingredients of a Service Dog. As the only accredited program based in Indiana by Assistance Dogs International (ADI), that means ICAN follows rigorous standards in the following areas:

  • safety and cleanliness of the training facility
  • fair and ethical treatment of clients
  • proper health care for the dogs
  • humane training methods for the dogs
  • criteria for screening suitability of both dogs and clients
  • criteria for matching dogs and clients
  • criteria for administration of all program operations and compliance with all legal regulations


Our organization relies on community partners, individuals, and private foundations to help us fulfill our mission. Whether you can donate your time to volunteer, provide a specific skill set to advance our program, purchase an ICAN Calendar, or give financially, your support is greatly needed and sincerely appreciated.

There are many other ways to support ICAN simply done through your purchases on Amazon, Kroger, or Chewy. We also have a Wish List of much-needed pet items! To learn more, visit Other Ways to Support ICAN.

You can bring hope for more independent living to those living with a disability, and hope to inmate handlers who gain valuable life skills by training these amazing animals for a life of service.
