A Vancouver bird rescue program faces an imminent foreclosure, and has called on the community to help.
The Northwest Bird Rescue Center is headed by Christopher Driggins, better known around Vancouver as 'the Bird Man'.
He's rescued hundreds of abused and injured birds since 2002, but has faced a serious financial crisis since a co-worker embezzled over seven hundred thousand dollars in 2006.
