Meredith Canto

Vice President

Meredith has degrees in Early Childhood Education/Special Education and Nursing.  She has coached children in cheerleading and soccer, and instructed horseback riding.  She has also been an active board member of high school athletic clubs.  

Meredith comes to Army’s Legacy with years of experience in the veterinary technician field, and training with large and small animals. She commits to finding a way to help in each animal’s situation, including finding solutions where others may not want to help because of breed or history.  She is a true team player, who has never been afraid to get dirty.  She believes in teaching strategies and making sure that, if needed, any animal owner has the resources and guidance they need.

Meredith has a passion for standing up not only for the well-being of animals, but also for families in need. Meredith and her daughter have founded Butterfly Boost. Butterfly Boost supplies hygiene items in “Boost Bags” to local domestic violence/care centers.  Meredith’s goal is to help advocate for those whose voices can’t be heard.

Eight years ago, as Meredith was nominated for Employee of the Year, she and her entire hospital unit contracted a rare virus.  Her life changed in an instant.  She has yet to fully recovered from the virus that triggered many auto immune responses.  Adjusting to the “new Meredith” has been challenging, but with the support of her family, friends, and fur babies, and with her focus on the causes dear to her, she continues to make a difference to those whose lives she touches.

Meredith lives with her husband Richard, her three awesome children, Richie, Olivia, and Connor, and their animal children – German Shepherds, a rescue Great Dane mix, a Pitbull mix, and her rescue cats.
