ICAN’s Annual Puppy Love Valentine’s

Presented by Curran Architecture, 2019 will be our eight year for Puppy Love Valentine’s and it continues to get bigger & better! 2018 was a huge success in which nearly 1,000 gift boxes were prepared and delivered throughout Indianapolis. Each year we include special items in our boxes and come up with a few surprises. Some of the items for 2018 Gift Box will include an assortment of baked goodies, a treat from Endangered Species Chocolate, a 6×8 dog art painting, a ten pack variety of ICAN greeting cards with beautiful photos of our dogs in training, Three Dog Bakery biscuits, plus more! Like last year, we are offering a Doggy Valentine Gift Bag as another option to deliver along with our gift box for those who had some four legged canines in need of some Valentine love!

Nearly 100 volunteers help plan and deliver the gift boxes and Indianapolis Yellow Cab of Indianapolis will once again be providing transportation for many of our volunteers. The handlers in our training program are preparing products and getting the gift box items ready and a number of businesses are providing items to make our gift box special. We are deeply grateful to these folks and extend a HUGE thank you to the past following businesses for their awesome support in making our Puppy Love Valentine a HUGE success!
