Thank you for adding me to the nominee's list. That has to be the biggest honor I have ever had.
So often a person isn't really appreciated when they try so hard to do good. I know I have made sacrifices most people would never dream of doing. I don't have a doubt that God hand picked me to help his creatures that have basically been forgotten and disrespected by most. How quickly people have forgotten pigeons were war hero's and saved countless thousands of our military men's lives.
Millions of birds are tied up with string and human hair with no one to help them. They have to watch there own toes fall off one at a time because there is no one to help them. Millions have both of there legs tied together in bondage with no one to help them.
My e-mail address is email@example.com - the recognition you are giving me might open a door or two for me someday and it would be great if people contact me. I want to do more than I am doing now to help the tortured birds. Maybe someone along the line would want to help or get involved. You know for 3 years I lived in my 1991 Chevy van conversion in the fenced in area because they rented me the spot for $250.00 a month. It was a sacrifice giving up electricity and modern conveniences and people thought I was nuts. But I had cages everywhere for patients and did it so I would have approx. $500.00 a month for seed , medicines and food for the neighborhood cats.
To me it was such a small sacrifice for the hundreds & hundreds of lives I saved and the years of torture I saved so many birds. Every time I give one of them there life back it is priceless. So many birds came directly to me for help when I was in my fenced in area. They would fly in there and land and wait for me to pick them up and help them. Something so beautiful and spiritual has been going on with us and the trust they have for me is out of this world. When I first started rescuing sometimes I would work on them 2 or 3 hours untying there horrible mess and soaking there wounds in peroxide. I would open my hand to shoo them away when I was done and I found out most were not leaving and wanted to stay with me and one flew to my chest and hugged it. They were showing there love to me for helping them.
There's a old abandoned hotel here that the city of long beach owns. They allowed birds to fly loose inside through broken windows for years. I took care of hundreds of birds outside there. One day the city decides to seal the birds in to let them die a horrible torturous death without food & water. I had to go in 5 times and have some photo's to rescue birds and that's a rescue story in itself if you ever wanted to hear more about it. Today walking Babygirl in my left hand I was able to rescue a bird in my right hand and untie two toes. That couple of minutes probably saved the bird so much future torture when the string tightened. 5 days ago I rescued a tied bird at McDonalds in my hands. It was tied around every toe and his foot. I spent maybe 5 minutes total helping this bird. He probably would of had to watch every toe rot off and maybe his foot in time and maybe he would of been tortured for a couple years. And the 5 minutes of my time saved him all this agony. What else on earth could anyone do with such a impact in such short periods of time I wonder. I only wished more people cared.
I have a million stories and its been a incredible journey. I don't think there is anyone in the united states that has worked as hard as I have for 6 years helping the hurt birds on the street. What makes what I do so unique is that I carry a net the size of a tennis racket with me. And I go out looking for the birds that need help and rescue them. My wall in the bedroom is full of cages to the ceiling almost. But I do try to be discreet
