Copper Horse Crusade is a 501c3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.


Cash donations are used to purchase hay and feed, to pay for veterinary services, and to cover daily operating expenses. You can also send a check to Copper Horse Crusade by mail to:

  • Julie Copper
  • 13258 Barrs Road
  • Massillon, Ohio 44647

PLAY THE NAME GAME - You can play the "NAME GAME", where a $25 donation buys the privilege of literally turning a slaughter bound horse from a "NUMBER" to a "NAME". Visit the Copper Horse Crusade page on Facebook or message Julie for more details!

BECOME A SPONSOR – Don’t have the funds or the space to adopt? For only $100 per month, you can sponsor a CHC horse during their evaluation, offsetting some of the cost of feed, hay, farrier care, supplements, worming and veterinary services.

SEND A GIFT CARD - Gift certificates redeemable at feed, farm supply, and home improvement stores, gas stations and elsewhere. Tractor Supply is a good choice and readily available nation-wide and online. Gift cards can be sent to: Julie Copper, CHC, 10952 Inland Rd, Cambridge, Ohio 43725.

GIVE YOUR TIME - Volunteers, especially those with equine, construction, marketing, advertising, and fundraising expertise are always needed and welcome. In-kind donations of labor or parts that keep the truck and trailer rolling and in good repair are greatly appreciated. If you have time we can always use help with grooming and bathing, stalls, hand walking, and tack cleaning and repair.

FEED THE CREW - You can call Farmers Exchange in Strasburg, Ohio, our feed provider, and donate bags of feed to CHC! We use Tribute Kalm Ultra, 12% sweet feed and Tribute Seniority (Textured). Let them know what kind of feed you would like to donate and the number of bags, and they will set them aside for us to pick up!
