Throughout the year, ICAN hosts a number of events to help raise money for ICAN. These events allow us to share with others the impact our dogs have on providing greater independence to individuals living with a disability, and also preparing offenders to return to our communities better equipped to obtain a job and successfully reintegrate with their families.
Our annual events or programs include If These Dogs Could Talk, a prison program in which you can meet some of our handlers and listen to their experiences as a training; ICAN’s Annual Puppy Love Valentines in which our dogs deliver hundreds of Valentine gift boxes to individuals throughout the greater Indianapolis area and also Puppy Love Year Round deliveries, where out dogs deliver gifts for businesses and special occasions.
In April we host our annual Beach Bingo where the dogs run the party and in June and December, we have our special Graduation Ceremony at the Indiana Women’s Prison, in which our dogs are officially placed with a new forever friend. Each October we hold our largest fundraiser of the year, Wine & Wags.
We also do special events in which businesses or supporters host a Tails to Tell at their home or business to raise money for ICAN.
