A Retreat For Children Living With Chronic Illnesses & Their Families

  • Nothing seems as unfair as a child with a chronic illness. Children shouldn't spend their days in the hospital fighting for their lives against an enemy they can't even see. It's hard on families. It's hard on kids. But there is a place where kids can smile and laugh and play, a place where they're not "different" or "sick," a place where they have the chance to be kids again. It's called Hoot N Holler Ranch

  • Animals do not ask to be neglected by humans, but  unfortunately it happens daily. Though there are many rescues for cats and dogs, farm animals are harder to rehome. They deserve to graze, roam, and be loved. Our focus is on goats, sheep, horses, and chickens. The children will be able to interact with these animals through our rehabilitation program learning to interact safely. Unconditional LOVE & FUN!
