People with disabilities face daily challenges when it comes to safety and independence.

Nearly 61 million Americans live with a physical, developmental, or cognitive disability that significantly impacts their lives.

Whether it’s a child who can’t concentrate at school, or a patient trying to navigate rehab after a stroke, they may struggle with feeling unstable or incapable.

One service dog can impact many lives.




Your school, courtroom, or physical therapy clinic will be an even more encouraging place with an ICAN dog on your team.

A skilled facility dog can:

 

ENTER YOUR FACILITY TO ASSIST A SPECIFIC PERSON OR GROUP.
While these dogs do not have public access protection under the ADA, they can still enter a facility if you and your administration agree upon the terms. Then, a specially trained dog can assist a student, patient, client, or group with their unique needs.
UNITE A COMMUNITY BY HELPING THEM BREAK BARRIERS.
Having a disability can be isolating, especially for children who struggle with feeling different from the other students in their class. But a facility dog can provide confidence in socializing with others — and their peers will also love being around the dog.


 

Our mission is to support those with disabilities — and the professionals who serve them — with skilled, comforting facility dogs.

We train some of our service dogs with the skills necessary to work with professionals in schools, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and courtrooms.

With a facility dog assisting your students, patients, or clients, you can help them overcome challenges with confidence and experience unconditional love.

An ICAN facility dog can assist your clients, patients, or students by:

Calming a child in a courtroom before they testify
Keeping their partner active during physical therapy
Comforting a child with special needs in the classroom
Boosting a student’s confidence as they read
And more
 

Facility dogs are trained service dogs that work with professionals who incorporate the dog into the care of their clients, patients, or students.

For those applying for a school facility dog, the dog needs to be facilitated by an applicant who is in a social work or counselor position. This will ensure that the dog and its skillsets are fully utilized.

We place facility dogs in nursing homes, but they must have a rehabilitation unit where that is the main focus for the dog, and the dog must be facilitated by an applicant who is a physical, occupational, or speech therapist.

Empower

children and adults

to overcome challenges with a facility dog by their side.
