About Us

Helping Equine Rescue and Retirement Facilities
The Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign is a non-profit joint effort between Merck Animal Health and the AAEP.

What we do.
Through the Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign, qualifying equine rescue and retirement facilities can receive complimentary equine vaccines for horses in their care, protecting the horses' health and making them more adoptable.

Approved rescues may receive one vaccine order per year for an unlimited number of horses. Available vaccines include EquiRab™ rabies vaccine and Prestige® V + WNV vaccine containing KY93, KY02 & NM2/93 Flu Strains, EHV-1, EHV-4, EEE, WEE, WNV and Tetanus.

How you can get involved.
AAEP-member veterinarians can work with equine rescue and retirement facilities to receive Merck Animal Health equine vaccines at no cost. AAEP-member veterinarians and equine rescue and retirement facilities work together to submit an application, the facilities checklist, and the equine vaccine order form. Only facilities that follow the AAEP Care Guidelines For Equine Rescue and Retirement Facilities and have a "not-for-profit" 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status will qualify for the equine vaccines.
