ICAN Graduation is a joyful ceremony where handlers and clients come together one last time before the clients take their service dogs home.
We celebrate the conclusion of Team Training, where children and adults with disabilities get to work and bond with the service dog that will help them gain more independence.
We hold these ceremonies at the Indiana Women’s Prison (IWP) on the second Thursday of June and December. Anyone 18 and older is welcome to attend.
Some of our community supporters choose to sponsor a Client-Canine Team (a client and their service dog). With a $750 sponsorship, you’ll absorb the cost of training materials, Team Training lunches, and graduation for one Client-Canine Team.
We understand that $750 is a lot to ask for. If you’d like to help in a smaller (yet still important!) way, you can also donate gift cards to Kroger, Costco, McAlister's Deli, or Subway. Our staff can then use these gift cards to purchase refreshments, meals, and supplies for Team Training & Graduation — ensuring a great celebration for all!
