“It was clear this homeowner cared a lot about her pets who were directly in harm’s way and just wanted them to be safe. We could not standby knowing that they might not make it another night if we did not step in and help,” said Nicole Brecht, President and Founder of the Good Life Refuge.

In spite of limited space, the sanctuary added the five birds to their population of 60+ animals.
