Volunteer Appreciation and Open House BBQ – May 2016

DSC_0033 DSC_0005_02 DSC_0018_01 DSC_0021_01May 29, 2016

This year’s BBQ event started with a 2 hour Volunteer appreciation lunch and a chance for our existing volunteers to meet up and visit.

At 2 PM the doors were thrown wide open to visitors who wanted to learn more about ICAN and to those interested in volunteering.

We are just delighted at the turn out.   Lots of happy faces stopping by to visit, grab a hot dog, dessert and wander through our cage free environment and meet our current resident cats and kittens.    We are happy to advise that Coco found her new forever family and left with them today.

ICAN sends out a huge Thank You to those of you who donated or filled out volunteer applications and we appreciate our wonderful community and the continuous and enthusiastic support we have received throughout the years.

WE CARE and we hope that was apparent to everyone who stopped by.  We are proud of the clean, spacious, well-cared for and nurturing atmosphere we provide for our rescue animals.    We are grateful to our dedicated foster families and volunteers.

If you missed the event and are still looking for ways to lend a paw, please call ICAN today to learn how you can help too.   250.341.7888.
