Established in 2008, the Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign (UHVRC) is a nonprofit joint effort between Merck Animal Health and the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP). Through the program, 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.

As a major supporter of the health and welfare of the horse, Merck Animal Health donates equine vaccines to qualifying equine rescue and retirement facilities in need through the Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign.

A portion of all Merck Animal Health equine vaccine sales goes toward supporting the UHVRC. Since its inception in 2008, more than $1 million in vaccine donations have been made by Merck Animal Health.
