The Big Purple Barn has been part of the Bowie community, in Maryland, for almost 20 years! In that time, we have provided a lifelong home for horses, ponies, mini, sheep, pigs and goats in need of our care. Many of our resident animals came from at risk situations. Many experienced abuse and neglect, others were slated for slaughter and consumption, and many of them have had emergency rehabilitation and medical care requirements or long term health concerns. No matter what challenges our resident animals face, we provide them with the highest quality of care we can provide. On average, it costs approximately $3,000 per month to provide for our animals feed and basic care. You can help with a one time OR recurring donation to support our mission to make the lives of these animals the best they can be! Our animals are the backbone of our education programs and they deserve the best we can give them. We need your help to continue to provide top notch care. You can choose to sponsor a specific animal by using the drop down menu! Each of our animals is listed on our website so you can get to know them better! You can also choose the general care fund if you don't want to choose :)
