    Wantage — Warwick Equine Clinic has taken a stand in support of unwanted horses by participating in the Unwanted Horse Veterinary Relief Campaign. As part of the outreach program, equine veterinarians help rescue and retirement facilities provide healthcare for America’s unwanted horses. The Arabian Rescue Mission in Wantage has directly benefited from the program. The facility, which provides care for 48 horses, recently received core equine vaccines thanks to the support of American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP)-member Warwick Equine Clinic. Dr. Brian MacNamara and Dr. Jen Lowry supported the The Arabian Rescue Mission’s application to obtain vaccines to protect these horses against Eastern and Western Encephalomyelitis, West Nile and Rabies.
