More than 2,500 horses received vaccinations through the Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign (UHVRC). Established in December 2008, the UHVRC is now accepting applications for 2010.
Equine rescue and retirement facilities wishing to apply for spring 2010 vaccinations should visit UHVRC.org and submit an application by February 1.
Applications for fall vaccinations must be submitted by August 1.
Equine rescue and retirement facilities must submit a new application each year to be considered. Beginning in 2010 all approved UHVRC vaccine orders will be shipped directly to the supporting AAEP-member veterinarian. The facility will be notified in writing when vaccines are shipped so they can make the appropriate arrangements with their veterinarian.
How to Apply:
- To qualify, equine rescue and retirement facilities must work with an AAEP-member veterinarian to complete and submit an application, facilities checklist and vaccine request form. Facilities must also follow the AAEP Care Guidelines for Equine Rescue and Retirement Facilities and have a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.
