ICAN to hold second annual adoption event

ICAN will be holding an adoption event on April 30.

Your new best friend could be waiting for you during the Invermere Companion Animal Network (ICAN)’s second annual adoption event on April 30. Last year, nine cats were adopted out at the event, which was a large number for ICAN, according to ICAN president Lana Banham.

“Many people think that animals in a rescue shelter are somehow unfit, are problem pets with behavioural or medical issues that will need to be taken on by the adoptee.  This is just not the case,” said Banham. “Most often, animals that are available for adoption are the most loving, caring and thankful pets you will ever have the pleasure of knowing!”

A cat adoption at ICAN is $100, which includes the animals spaying or neutering and first shots. Smaller animals are $40 or less. Adoption sheets can be filled out and reviewed on-site during the adoption event. In the event that the adoption process takes longer, animals can be put on “hold” for those eager to welcome them into their families.
