Therapy Ranch Needs Support

Life Is Tough Sometimes But For Children Living With Chronic Illnesses, It Is Tough Every Single Day. It Takes Its Toll On Them Physically, The Worst Part Is What It Does To Them Emotionally, Mentally, And Spiritually. We Want To Be Able To Offer Them A Chance To Not Think About Their Sickness And Just Be A Kid. Hoot N Holler Ranch fosters HOPE for children of all ages living with CHRONIC ILLNESSES and their families by providing a safe, NO-COST retreat in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. We encourage our guests to LET GO of their daily burdens as they GROW closer to God while battling through illness and the depression that often accompanies it. 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 new 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 planned. We Need YOUR Help To Purchase The New Property!

OUR VOLUNTEERS, DONORS, AND COMMUNITY! OUR NEW PROPERTY IS ALREADY EQUIPPED WITH ALL OF THE FACILITIES WE NEED FOR OUR VISITING FAMILIES AND RESCUE ANIMALS.  JOIN US IN OUR VISION. 100% of ALL proceeds will go to the purchase of our new property! Every dollar makes a big difference. Please visit us on or  


Nothing seems as unfair as a child with a chronic illness. Children shouldn't spend beautiful 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!44995600_1580253546215835_r.jpegWe 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.

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.
