Sam, Duke & Jake are the OG Mascots that were part of the OT charity organization in Montana. They are now living happily in Franklin Tennessee while OT's new headquarters in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains is being retrofitted to house them safely. The goal is to have the barn built, and proper fencing installed so Sam, Duke, and Jake can happily call OT's Headquarters in Heritage Holler home come this spring. These amazing lil'Amigos are highly trained and service animal certified to enter schools, hospitals, and be part of public events. We look forward to having them here at the farm, but to make this a reality here at Heritage Holler we need all hands on deck to help with volunteering, donating, and sponsoring this massive undertaking. This is a multi phase process to bring these amazing therapy animals home to Operation Therapy's Headquarters here in East Tennessee. Scroll below to get the full story of Sam, Duke, and Jake, Timeline, and how you can help be part of this amazing journey.
Operation Therapy was donated 2 vintage barns that need to be dismantled, inventoried and moved to OT's headquarters at Heritage Holler. The material will be accessed, measured/cut and stored for repurposing. The goal is to minimize the cost in building materials, while keeping the barn here at Heritage Holler original and vintage as if it were built late 1800's/early 1900's.
Cost: $10,000 per barn
Barn location area will need to be excavated and prepared for peers and foundation. Retainage along the creek will need to be added to protect from heavy rains. Run electrical and drainage/rain catchment system. Install peers and foundation for post/beams.
Construct the barn per plans (barn plans TBD). Install fence post, gates, and fencing to safely secure horses.
Final barn/site preparation for the arrival of Jake, Duke, and Sammy. Work with the caretaker in Nashville Tennessee for transport. Bring the lil'Dudes to OT's Headquarters her in Heritage Holler. Arrival Date: Spring 2024
