In the 10th year of partnership between the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) and Merck Animal Health, the Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign (UHVRC) provided 3,500 doses of vaccines to horses in need. Since its inception, the UHVRC has delivered more than 28,000 doses of core vaccines.

The donated vaccines are to protect horses from Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE), Western equine encephalitis (WEE), equine rhinopneumonitis (EHV-1 and -4), tetanus, West Nile virus, and rabies.

Days End Farm Horse Rescue (DEFHR), in Woodbine, Maryland, which rehabilitates and rehomes horses seized from animal protection authorities, is among 226 nonprofit equine rescue and retirement facilities to receive free vaccines in 2018 through the UHVRC
