WelcomePigeons With A Purpose
Pigeons with a purpose is an Iowa non-profit corporation, classified as a public charity. The purpose of raising money is to help our wounded warrior service men and women while at the same time, providing our donors with an entirely new and entertaining concept, a homing pigeon race. You can sponsor a pigeon and if your pigeon places as one of the top 5 finishers, you will win a portion of the race purse.
Homing Pigeons have served in wars for 5000 years. Starting with the Pharaohs through the European conflicts to the Pigeon Corp in WW1 and WW2 providing invaluable intelligence. Pigeons have long played an important role in American Wars. These American Homing Pigeons utilized by the U.S. Army Signal Corps, U.S. Air force and the United States Navy, were provided for military service by members of the American Racing Pigeon Union. Aircraft and war ships always carried military pigeons.
