More About Membership

ICAN membership is open to Organisations and Individuals


Members of ICAN organisations automatically become ICAN members.

If you or your organisation are interested in joining ICAN please email for details on how to apply.

All those seeking membership of ICAN must use, teach and promote only force-free methods.

All members, both organisations and individuals, must adhere to the ICAN membership criteria and ethos.

Organisation membership gives all individuals within each organisation the right to use and display the ICAN  logo.

The head of each individual organisation is responsible for monitoring their members, assessing qualifications and CPD (where applicable), and dealing with complaints, should these arise.

ICAN takes no responsibility for the behaviour of individual member organisations and their members. 

All ICAN individual members and organisation members will have to sign ICANs declaration.

ICAN Member Declaration
I hereby acknowledge that all animals are sentient beings, capable of rich emotions, have the capacity to feel pain and are with complex, species-specific needs.
I declare that in the care, management and training of all animals I interact with, I will always seek to promote positive emotions and protect against negative ones.
Furthermore, I will always endeavour to understand the specific needs and welfare of the animals in my care and fulfill them to the best of my ability.
