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

About ICAN

Shazam-12-09-14-maleICAN is a Registered Non-Profit Animal Rescue with charitable status, serving Invermere and surrounding districts in the Columbia Valley of BC.  All the workers who attend to the daily needs of the companion animals in our care,  every day, of every year are volunteers, with the exception of one office assistant who was hired the fall of 2017.

ICAN is a cage-free companion animal shelter.   All dogs or puppies who come to ICAN are placed in foster care while awaiting adoption.

We are open on Mondays from noon to 4:00 pm or by appointment by calling 250-341-7888.

The majority of our rescue companion animals are brought to us from within the Columbia Valley, and we work in cooperation with Cranbrook, Creston and Golden animal rescue centers.

We at ICAN believe that the only way the pet overpopulation problem can be addressed is to have all companion animals spayed or neutered.   When you adopt from ICAN, you can be secure in the knowledge your animal will not be contributing to the problem of pet overpopulation.

If you have any questions, concerns, or need help deciding the right time to have your pet altered, please give us a call or an email and we will gladly help you out with your decision. Please do the responsible thing and have your companion spayed or neutered, as young as 5 months of age!
