WELCOME TO THE HERD
Welcome to The Big Purple Barn in Bowie, Maryland!
We provide a permanent home with a lifetime of compassionate care for special needs horses, ponies, minis (all equines), as well as sheep, goats and pigs.
Our residents, in turn, provide opportunities in our community for people to make meaningful connections with our animals.
We are a nonprofit organization that is dependent on the generosity of our friends and donors; and with YOUR help, we can keep our commitment to the animals in our care.
Please come on in and explore the variety of residents that call us home and see the different ways YOU can help!
BE A HERO FOR THE HERD
on Giving Tuesday 2023 and beyond!
Giving Tuesday and the end of year giving seasonare upon us! Our community has always been a integral part of our continued success and evolution and we than you for being a part of our organization and continued success of our mission. We call it our COMMUNITY OF CARING!
As a small, community based non profit, we are at a disadvantage with larger organizations with larger fundraising budgets. We rely on our community of support to help us spread the word! You can comment, like and SHARE our campaign to help us get the word out. We have been in our Bowie location since 2001 and we are celebrating 10 years as a non profit! We are not only committed to our resident animals, but we are also committed to our community! You can help us continue to be a valuable community resource and impact an organization in your area!
