Good Works for Horses Logo

Compassionate, selfless service distinguishes equine veterinarians as some of the most trusted professionals in America. Many veterinarians volunteer their time and veterinary skills beyond the scope of their daily practice to help horses and the equine community.

The AAEP is honoring its members who embody a spirit of service to the horse through the 2024 Good Works for Horses Campaign, sponsored by Zoetis. Good works are acts of giving back to the horse, for the love of the horse and the people they touch. The campaign runs June 1 – August 31. 

Good Works may include but are not limited to:

  • Volunteering services or resources at an equine rescue or retirement facility or therapy center
  • Offering free or low-cost vaccinations or veterinary services to a community
  • Contributing funds to support an equine-related benevolent program
  • Participating in educational programs for community horse organizations or equine veterinary students
  • "Equitarian" service local or abroad, including projects in developing countries
  • Assistance to local law enforcement and animal welfare groups

Three veterinarians will be chosen for recognition each month in a Win, Place and Show order. A grand prize winner will be honored during the 2024 AAEP Convention in Orlando, Florida.  All nominated veterinarians receive a letter recognizing their contributions.
