HOOT N HOLLER RANCH
This Is A Labor Of Love That Will Benefit Sick Children From Coast To Coast
If you would like to know how Hoot N Holler Ranch started, read a message from our founder
Hoot N Holler Ranch has been in the planning stages for almost 30 years,
and we are EXCITED to say...
God has brought us to the perfect piece of property!!
It is nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and has ALL of the desired facilities required for our children's retreat and our animal rescue program! BUT Hoot N Holler Ranch needs your help to raise the funds in order to purchase our new property.
We believe that this location will provide the perfect country setting needed for our guests to kick back, relax and cut loose. Upon opening on our beautiful property, we will start organizing our calendar for our 3-5 day retreats throughout the year. Each retreat will have a theme that will be designed for specific illnesses and age groups. Visitors will have ample opportunities to relax in their CABIN, enjoy NATURE, interact with our RESCUE ANIMALS, participate in ARTS & CRAFTS, enjoy FISHING in our pond, bond over a CAMPFIRE, create FRIENDSHIPS, and join in ACTIVITIES. Families are invited to enjoy all the ranch has to offer at their leisure, as there are activities for every ability level.
Ultimately, our main goal is:
TO SEE OUR FAMILIES SMILE AND HAVE FUN!
“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”
We WILL NOT be obtaining our "charitable" 501c3 status. While there are many great charities out there, we find that it is common for these organizations to have HEFTY payrolls. We do not agree. Therefore, we are able to put 100% of the proceeds toward the purchase of the property! We do understand that this might hurt our fundraising but we sincerely hope that you understand our vision.
Our goal is to be debt-free so that we are able to focus future fundraising on our operational expenses only. We will be offering a venue and cabin rentals to the public by reservation ONLY, on a LIMITED basis, as a means of financially supporting ANIMAL CARE and our MISSION of providing solace to qualifying CHILDREN in need. We do not want to solely rely on fundraisers in order to SUPPORT the retreats and we never want to have to turn any family away due to lack of funding.
