Description of Services/Statement
of Purpose and Goals: CANTER Volunteers visit these tracks weekly in order to speak with owners and trainers about retiring horses and selling to the sporthorse market. Over ten years, CANTER has helped place over 10,000 horses nationally. Not only is this program wildly successful and lauded by racing owners, trainers, management and the industry, it is appreciated by the horse-buying market. CANTERs site is visited by over 50,000 people a month and has inspired others to start their own groups with similar missions.CANTER is unique in that it has two approaches to helping horses into new homes. If thoroughbreds are unable to be listed on our site for sale to the public, as funds allow we take horses into the program for rehabilitation, retraining and rehoming. CANTER is not a retirement home for Thoroughbreds, but rather a rehoming service for horses of sound mind and body.100% Volunteer-RunCANTER is run by 100% volunteer services. This means that no salaries are drawn by anybody associated with CANTER. Currently, all volunteers have full-time jobs in addition to their duties with CANTER. Our volunteers and horses span several states including Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
