Deadline For Shelters To Apply For Free Equine Vaccines Is Feb. 1

The Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign is accepting applications from equine rescue and retirement facilities for free horse vaccines.

The Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign is accepting applications through Feb. 1, 2012, from equine rescue and retirement facilities in the United States for free horse vaccines.

The campaign, sponsored by Summit, N.J.-based Merck Animal Health and the American Association for Equine Practitioners, has provided vaccines for more than 15,000 horses since its inception in 2008.

Qualifying facilities are provided with vaccines to protect against eastern equine encephalomyelitis (EEE), western equine encephalomyelitis (WEE), rabies, tetanus, equine influenza and equine herpesvirus. To qualify for the horse vaccines, facilities must have 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and abide by the “AAEP Care Guidelines for Equine Rescue and Retirement Facilities.” Facilities are required to work with an AAEP-member veterinarian when applying for vaccinations.

Downloadable applications can be found on the Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign website.
