Thanks to a generous donation from the American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation [AAEP], The Unwanted Horse Coalition [UHC] is able to continue its Operation Gelding program. The Operation Gelding program provides funds and materials to assist organizations, associations and events that wish to sponsor clinics to which horse owners can bring their stallions to be castrated. Since the program was initiated in September 2010, Operation Gelding has assisted in gelding 489 stallions and has provided $24,450 in grant money to organizations that have hosted Operation Gelding castration clinics.
“The UHC is pleased to announce that the AAEP Foundation will be donating $15,000 to the Operation Gelding program to help continue this important effort and aid in the castration of 300 additional stallions. With this charitable donation, the AAEP is dedicated to making a positive impact on unwanted horses and the entire equine industry,” said Dr. Douglas Corey, Chairman of the UHC.
