Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Horse Welfare

Our organization operates programs involved with horse rescue, foster care, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement.

Our organization's primary activity is equine rescue & adoption.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Copper Horse Crusade exists because too many good horses end up in the kill pens. We pioneered the concept of sustainably saving slaughter bound horses, with an emphasis on resource management and proper training. We believe in doing the most good for the greatest number of horses.

Horse-related programs:
Copper Horse Crusade pulls slaughter-bound horses, provides them with professional training, and finds appropriate life-long homes for them. We provide services for horses who need removed due to neglect, as well as providing a safety net for surrendered horses. Every horse coming to CHC undergoes a 30 day evaluation that includes professional training , medical, farrier and dental attention as needed. Every aspect of good equine partnership is tested and then refined, improved or corrected as needed before a horse is placed. Our goal is to give our horses the tools they need to be safe and well-loved members of their forever homes. This method of saving slaughter-bound horses has resulted in the placement of over 70 horses each year.
