Rescuing, Sheltering and Rehoming Companion Animals in the Columbia Valley of BC since 2007

Welcome to ICAN

The Invermere Companion Animal Network (ICAN) is a registered non-profit, all volunteer, no-kill, no-cage animal rescue and adoption facility, located in Invermere, BC, that services the Columbia Valley from Canal Flats to Spillimacheen.

ICAN accepts homeless cats and kittens, guardian surrendered dogs and small animals. We attend to their veterinary needs, including spay and neuter, and any special care required before placing them in loving forever homes.

Please call us at (250) 341-7888 to discuss options on surrendering your companion animal, advice, or to arrange a time to visit our amazing, adoptable companions!

Kitten Crusade

This very successful program has helped Valley Residents for over 4 years.   If you have a litter of kittens you can bring them all to ICAN when they are ready to be weaned.   Your cat will be spayed courtesy of ICAN and returned to you, while the kittens will be spayed or neutered and adopted out to good homes.   Together we can make sure no kittens go out to the public without getting spayed and neutered and that your mom cat will not have an unwanted litter again.   It’s a happy ending for all.  If you hear of anyone who is giving away kittens for “free” please have them contact us.  Oh and yes, we do puppies too.   Call us at 250-341-7888.

Make a Difference

ICAN depends on your caring and generosity to help animals in need.  Staffed only by volunteers, we rely on fundraising and donations to support the services we provide to the Columbia Valley.   Every gesture, every gift, every person or organization who takes the time to help in some way is "Someone Who Cares" and you do MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Become A Foster

Foster guardianship is an opportunity to make a difference in an animal’s life. We are looking for caring, compassionate individuals or families in the Invermere area who have space in their home and love in their heart to provide a temporary home to a needy companion animal.  We supply all the essentials so there is no cost to you!  Email or call us to inquire about helping us, help them!     Foster Home Application

Adopt a Companion

♥ Each animal that comes into our care is integrated slowly into the ICAN facility to ensure they are healthy, and comfortable with other animals, children and people in general.
All adoptions require a completed application and an interview with an ICAN representative. All applicants are carefully screened to ensure our animals are placed in the best possible home.  ICAN encourages all members of the family to participate in the selection of a companion animal.
