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.


February Puppy of the Month!

Are you looking for a great canine companion? One who will be fun to take on walks and discover new places? Then, you’ve got to meet Magnus.

Magnus is a mellow kind of dog – cool and collected. His favorite things to do at the shelter are taking walks with the Canine Companion volunteers, on the wooded trails. He’s an affectionate guy, and good company! Magnus is very gentle and he loves to get attention, especially ear scratches. He is also one who leans for pets. He can seem kind of aloof, curled up on his dog bed, in his own little world – however, he is ready whenever you are, to go off on an adventure together, or to share good times. All you need to do is say “Let’s Go!”

Come meet Magnus, a dog who promises to be a great friend.




  1. We LOVE our Diva. She is quite the character. Thank you to DCHS and Basset Buddy rescue for fostering her. Thanks also to IANs pizza for spotlighting these girls on the puppy of the month poster. Diva is now with us, in her furever home!
