The Little Dude Ranch is our gift to our son. Andy-Dude wanted a llama and he was promised a llama for his 9th birthday. He left this world less than a month later, but there was no way that Andy wouldn't get his final wish.
After purchasing a 10 acre ranch in Mounds, Oklahoma, it became our family's dream to live with Andy's llamas. We are in the process of building his llama ranch that will be our home and the home-base for our work. We will line the perimeter of our property with "Life Trees," trees planted in loving memory of lost loved ones, and operate our non-profit from our home. It will offer a variety of charitable contributions, from "Buddy Benches" to scholarships to carbon monoxide awareness signs. Just as Andy was so quick to show his love, we want to show our love with a beautiful ranch where our doors are open to anyone who wants to meet the animals and hear our story, to hear Andy-Dude's story.
