Press Release - ASPCA Grant Awarded to CANTER Michigan

CANTER MICHIGAN has been chosen by the ASPCA to receive a generous grant that will help CANTER MICHIGAN bring in Thoroughbreds that suffer race track injuries and provide surgery at Michigan State University.

This ASPCA grant literally saves the lives of numerous Thoroughbreds who face few options if they are injured and can't race. Most injured thoroughbreds have bone chips in joints which can be successfully removed through arthroscopic surgery or they may suffer a fractured leg which in many cases can be repaired.

CANTER is awarded a Horse Rescue & Relief Award

We at how-to-train-a-horse.org truly admire those who dedicate time out of their lives towards helping horses.  As many people know, healthy horses require large amounts of time and money, but only few know that the horses sent to rescues and shelters don't need just time and money, but also need a loving family to reverse years of abuse and neglect.  

Without horse rescues like CANTER, countless horses would not get the care they need and many horses may have never found happiness.  Because of this we wanted to show our appreciation towards your staff for not only saving horses lives but also for improving the quality of life for many horses.  So we are pleased to present CANTER with our Horse Rescue & Relief Award.

We thank you for all the time and hard work your organization provides for horses in need.  We understand what a difficult task this can be and hope that this token of our appreciation will show you how much you really are appreciated.
