Puppy of the Month

What can we say, we love pizza, salad, craft beer, the lakes in Madison, a good bike path, and dogs, among other things. That list is in no particular order, but dogs are probably close to the top.

A big part of the culture here at Ian's is being involved in the local community and trying to give back to our community whenever possible. So when we started making our own Puppy Chow (yes, it's called Puppy Chow but it's human food) we reached out to the Dane County Humane Society to see how we could lend a hand!

What we came up with was an amazing program to try to help out some amazing animals in need of forever homes. Each month we receive the name and information of a puppy in need of adoption from the Dane County Humane Society's animal shelter. We display this information near our Puppy Chow in-store and for every bag of Puppy Chow that is purchased that month, we donate a portion of those sales to helping find that dog a home.

Through this great program, we've proudly helped numerous Dane County dogs find the loving homes they deserve. If you'd like to find out more information about how you can help out the DCHS, or are looking for any resources about adopting a dog, please visit their website at giveshelter.org or stop by their main shelter at 5132 Voges Road. We're happy to have such a great partner in the Madison area who does so much for these great future pets.


March Puppy of the Month!

As hound enthusiasts know, although hounds can sometimes seem to be off in their own world, hounds can be the sweetest and they hold your affection dearly. There is nothing like a hound dog to enjoy nature with and to point out things you may never have otherwise noticed. There is also nothing like a hound to let you know exactly how they feel! Clarence is no exception. His great zeal for life - often expressed in his melodious bays - makes him a fun and goofy life-long canine companion. As no one has really taught him some proper doggie manners, it would only be fair to show him the ropes so that he may become the true gentleman that he is. He is getting a good start here. He is now crate trained, he knows his name, and he knows “sit!” Clarence enjoys the company of other dogs. We set him up every day with fun play dates with other shelter dogs.

Are you ready for new adventures with a new canine pal? Consider Clarence!

Available for adoption at DCHS main shelter (5132 Voges Road)
