We were happy to fulfill a Grant request to ICAN (the Indiana Canine Assistance Network).  Our funds will be used to generally support ICAN’s overall mission to provide task-trained, quality service dogs, and also to expand their Veteran support program. Their Veterans Division trains veteran-owned or shelter dogs for Veterans referred to ICAN by the Veterans Administration (VA).  ICAN’s service dogs provide independence, access to college, employment or self-employment, and help Indiana children, adults, and veterans break barriers and overcome challenges. ICAN is the only accredited service dog program in Indiana.  ICAN unleashes hope on both ends of the leash for adults, children, veterans and the incarcerated; in 2021 alone ICAN served 4,280 Indiana residents living with various physical, intellectual or developmental disabilities.
