The Invermere Companion Animal Network, better known to all as ICAN, is a volunteer-run, registered charity, an animal rescue and adoption centre in the Columbia Valley.
Since its inception in 2007, ICAN has assisted more than 1,300, mostly small companion animals in need, especially cats. About 125 per year are given care, time to heal and are adopted into new and loving families.
Animals that come to ICAN receive veterinary care if required, are fed quality food and given time to heal. All animals are spayed or neutered except for birds before adoption.
Their animal shelter is located at 455 Panorama Drive in Athalmer.
