GRANDVIEW, Mo. -- A local pet owner recently nominated a Grandview, Mo., veterinarian for FOX 4's "Pay It Forward" award after noticing her devotion to birds.
Carl Bryant says he would like to thank Dr. Julie Burge and help her build a bird sanctuary.
"She goes out in situations and bird mills, just like puppy mills, she's called in to go in and basically rescue birds," Bryant said.
Burge says she's able to find homes for most of the birds but there are some birds that stay with her for forever due to medical and emotional issues.
