Welcome to ICAN
The Invermere Companion Animal Network (ICAN) is a registered non-profit, 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.

Dental surgery, including after care antibiotics and pain medication, are estimated at approximately $1,350. Read more ..

Fostering for ICAN
Foster guardianship is an opportunity to make a difference in an animal’s life.
Sharing in the welfare of animals in need, and seeing the results of your efforts as healthy, nurtured animals find their forever homes, also makes a joyful difference in foster families lives.
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.
