Have a Puppy Deliver Your Valentine’s…Because Honestly, Why Wouldn’t You?
Lifestyle| | By Brian Delpozo
Looking to add some spark to your Valentine’s delivery? The Indiana Canine Assistance Network (ICAN) has you covered.
For the sixth year in a row, ICAN is offering “Puppy Love Valentine’s Gift Boxes.” For $50, the organization sends a box filled with treats for people and dogs alike. The box includes artwork , greeting cards, candles, scarves, and other treats designed by inmates in the Indiana Women’s Prison Community Outreach Program.
Best of all, the boxes are “delivered” by one of their adorable service dogs. What a great combo!
The organization, which began 15 years ago, uses the Valentine’s Day holiday to promote the organization’s overarching mission statements, described on their website as:
Children and adults with disabilities and their families find they can live more independent and productive lives with the help of a service dog.
Carefully screened incarcerated adults train these dogs. These handlers have the full time responsibility, 24 hours a day and seven days a week, to care for and teach their dogs the skills needed to become successful service dogs. The handlers also gain many professional and life skills that help with a successful re-entry to our communities.
By working with a dog’s innate temperament and eagerness to be with people, ICAN is able to provide service dogs with work they enjoy.
The organization will make deliveries — including puppy visits to homes, businesses and schools in the Indianapolis area. More information can be found on the organization’s website.
