Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
CANTER's program helps Thoroughbred ex-racehorses to heal from injuries, receive retraining so they can excel in new careers and marketing to find the perfect CANTER-approved home. CANTER accepts non-competitive and injured thoroughbreds off racetracks in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Most are young at 3 - 5 years old. CANTER transports them off racetracks into Michigan State University for surgery to repair racetrack injuries, or to CANTER-approved rehab or training facilities for veterinary evaluation, treatment and farrier care. Rehabilitation time helps them adjust to farm life and living in a herd. Retraining begins for new careers and marketing results in adoptions by Canter-approved adopters in non-race homes.
CANTER provides life saving surgery to remove bone chips or repair leg fractures at Michigan State University, while providing an advanced education to MSU Vet students who assist with all aspects of arthroscopic surgery.
CANTER horses heal with several months rehab. A vet assessment determines when they can end rehab and begin retraining for new careers.
