Mission Statement

CANTER Ohio is dedicated to providing Ohio's retiring thoroughbred racehorses opportunities for new careers after the finish line.

Description

CANTER stands for The Communication Alliance to Network Thoroughbred Ex-Racehorses. It is an all-volunteer organization founded in 1997 by Jo Anne Normile, a Michigan racehorse owner. What started as a "word of mouth" program quickly became a national web-based phenomenon, matching potential sport horse owners with many available prospects by providing free listings of horses available to the general public on the internet. CANTEROhio was started in 2001. CANTER Ohio provides both the free internet service and rescue services for horses at risk of going to auction and probable slaughter. To date, CANTER Ohio has helped over 1,500 horses find new homes from Thistledown Racetrack in Cleveland and Beulah Park in Columbus, Ohio. Of that number, CANTER Ohio has also provided its rescue services to more than 450 thoroughbreds at risk of going to slaughter for human consumption abroad.
