Luke Bryan’s Petting Zoo and Animal Rescue was started by his wife (Caroline Boyer Bryan) and her sister-in-law (Ellen).“After Brett passed away, I decided to keep a promise I made to her when she was about a month old… a white pony! We found the pony at a local animal rescue facility. Along with the white pony, we adopted another pony, goat and pig. Over the next few months, the barn continued to grow. The promise I made to Brett, for one white pony, quickly turned into a full blown miniature animal farm! Brett’s Barn now has over 20 animals! We are discussing various ways of expanding and, hopefully, be open to the public someday,” Caroline Bryan shares on The Brett Boyer Foundation website.
The mission of the Brett Boyer foundation is to raise awareness for Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) and fund research to advance treatment options. It is also their mission to spread the love and awareness that Brett provided for those living with Down Syndrome.
Brett’s Barn is a special place.
The entire herd of animals at Brett’s barn is guarded by George and Weezie (2 Great Pyrenees mountain dogs).The visiting kids from Vanderbilt’s children hospital and St. Jude’s children hospital have a wonderful time experiencing the great outdoors and meeting the various rescue animals.
“We love these animals and the amazing children that come visit. It’s truly a special place and we can feel Brett’s spirit there every single day”, stated Caroline Boyer Bryan.
