Rescuing, Sheltering and Rehoming Companion Animals in the Columbia Valley of BC since 2007


THANK YOU for considering adopting a pet from the Invermere Companion Animal Network!

When you choose a companion from ICAN you are, in fact, saving two lives. The one you take home and the next one who takes her place at the shelter. Any companion coming into our shelter is assessed for behavioral issues and medical needs before being placed for adoption.  All of our companions have been dewormed, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and have received any veterinary treatment required.

We do offer a 2 week trial period for any companion you wish to add to your home. If, for any reason, the partnership is just not working out, you can return that companion to our shelter and offer your home to another who may fit in better. We want all of our adoptions to be forever adoptions!

We provide all the necessary information relating to any vet care they have received and records from the vet can be transferred to the new guardian after the 2 week trial period.  ICAN is not liable for any unforeseen behavior’s or medical issues that may arise after adoption.

We hope you will find your perfect match at ICAN — we are all saving lives, one at a time!

The adoption process is simple, but you will need to fill out an adoption application and have it approved before an adoption can take place. We request that any potential adopters meet the companion animal that they are interested in personally, before adopting. Landlords, references and/or veterinarians may be contacted when your application is being reviewed.

We will not allow an animal to go to a new home without first being spayed or neutered (except small animals which are dealt with on a case-by-case basis). Kittens are usually altered at about 7-9 weeks of age and after a 2 day recuperation period they are ready to go home! Adult cats and rabbits are altered as soon as possible after arriving at ICAN and are ready for adoption after a 2 day recuperation period (under normal circumstances).
