Looking for a new feline companion? ICAN has plenty.

The Invermere Companion Animal Network (ICAN) is holding another adoption event on July 23 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

ICAN currently has 23 kittens and 10 cats who are looking for a good home, and ICAN is offering special deals during the event.

People who adopt will receive a free gift for their new kitten or cat, and people who adopt more than one kitten or cat will get a reduced adoption fee for each feline.

First-time kitten or cat owners who are looking to adopt will receive a free CD outlining what to expect from the new furry friend upon bringing them home and more.

ICAN will also be hosting its fourth annual garage sale this year on August 6.

Currently, ICAN is looking for gently-used household items and appliances for donation.

Last year’s garage sale funds were able to provide ICAN with close to six months rent for their current location.

“There is always a huge variety of things for sale at the ICAN garage sale, and we always have people leaving with smiles and cash still in their wallets!” said ICAN President Lana Banham.

“All items that are not sold at our garage sale are then donated to another non-profit charity —  Blessings Thrift Store in Radium — in the hopes that they will have buyers who will support their charity as well.”
