AAEP Vets Help "Unwanted" Horses Get Vaccines

Donated vaccines for equine rescues

From old broodmares to pasture pets, to broken-down campaigners to horses who simply fell through the cracks, America's unwanted horse problem is escalating. Overburdened are under funded, equine rescues need help.

Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health has partnered with the American Association of Equine Practitioners to launch the Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign (UHVRC). UHVRC is a nonprofit program that will provide core equine vaccines to qualified equine rescue and retirement facilities across the United States. Through the UHVRC, Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health will donate their most popular equine vaccines to qualifying facilities.
