"The Unwanted Horse"

Received an interesting email today about the Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign.

It's evidently a non-profit joint effort by Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health and the American Association of Equine Professionals (AEEP). Here's their opening statement:
We’re for the unwanted horse. For the broodmare whose breeding days are over. For the Thoroughbred that’s just not fast enough. For the workhorses. The pasture pets. The foals that fell through the cracks.

At Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health and the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), we’re for the road home. Through the Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign, we pledge to help the overburdened equine rescues and retirement facilities provide healthcare so they can rehabilitate, revitalize and, ultimately, re-home America’s unwanted horses.

Get involved with the Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign. And help these horses find the homes they deserve.
They seem to be putting their money where their mouth is. Neglected Horses Receive Help.

Anyone heard of them?
