This page is dedicated to Braveheart! A very brave little guy! We lost Braveheart on 11/24/08 due to heart failure. Beautiful, strong, determined, inspirational ... these are only a few of the words that describe Braveheart. He challenged us all to keep going regardless of the obstacles. He will be forever missed and loved.

Saying good bye to the most special bird ever.
This is one of the hardest posts I have had to ever make, Through the years we have all lost our loved ones, and had many tears together, It is with great sorry and a heavy heart, that we all need to say good bye to one of the most special birds that have touched all of our hearts,
On Monday we lost the greatest gift we lost our Braveheart


11/26/07 update: I want to thank all of my friends here on BC for electing me as BOTW. I am very honored and touched***I was a very brave bird which is how I got my name BraveHeart. I was misunderstood, got in trouble for just being a bird, and had my tootsies burned off on a stove top. I was rescued from that person and was brought to Second Chance Bird Rescue, where I will live forever. They think I am really special there! I have a very special cage with ramps and horizontial bars so I can climb with my little nubbie footsies, and I am the Rescue's mascot which means I am really important. Here's a little poem about my story: To climb a rope. To sit on a perch and enjoy eating a piece of apple that I hold by myself. To play on a ladder and hang upside down from my swing. To sit on your shoulder and whisper in your ear. These are things I dream of doing, but will never be able to do. Because I made a sound. Because I got food on the floor. Who knows why.
Because I was a bird and did things that birds do.
My life changed. ....Forever.
My name is BraveHeart, and I was Brave. When I was yelled at, I was Brave. When I was lacking companionship and love, I was Brave. When I felt the heat on my toes that burned them away, I was Brave. When all I could do was scream, and dream that it would stop, I was Brave.
When someone who I thought would take care of me put me in the path of danger, I was Brave. All I wanted was to give love and get love, and when no one wanted me because I was not perfect, I was still Brave. Then...I was found. Now......
I am loved for no reason.
I am cared for just because.
I have a second chance at life. And no longer need to be Brave. My name is BraveHeart, and this is my story. My long journey has ended...or has it just begun..


My heart breaks for your loss. Braveheart had the heart of a warrior to survive what he did to come to you and still be able to love, trust, care.

Your work is not done; Braveheart will count on you to keep up his work, passing his story on to others...

May time heal, prayers to you and Braveheart...

Now, find the time, to step outside, and look upwards towards the Heavens....

Can you see Braveheart flying free, feet tucked up against his body, diving and landing on a favorite tree...All healed in body and spirit...



He knew he was loved by you...and this allowed him a slice of heaven on Earth....



Again, my heart breaks for your loss...My flock and I will say a special prayer for Braveheart...


Braveheart showed no signs of any problems, and just peacefully passed in the night, We had a necropsy done to find out why we lost such a special boy, The vet called me last night, and it seems as if Braveheart had a vascular disease (bad heart ) The vet says this is hereditary and was passed down to him from his parents, His arteries hardened and his heart gave up, They also saw signs of blood clots in his legs from his trauma poor circulation ,The vet told me this is just like people there are no signs of heart disease until it is to late, He told me to be at peace that Braveheart did not suffer.
I can not tell you all the pain I have in my heart right now, I keep praying this was a bad dream and I will wake up from it, walking into the shelter without Braveheart here was the hardest thing to do, Braveheart is ,was the reason I fight so hard for these birds, He is the reason I found a true friend (Nancy) This bird through the six years he has been with me, has brought many people together to fight for the ones who can't speak for themselves, He has opened many peoples eyes to reality of abuse that goes on with these helpless souls.
I don't think there has been a more devastating loss.
I ask everyone here to please take a few moments in silence and remember Braveheart, remember what he meant to so many, remember the strength this brave soul had, He is ,the true meaning of Brave ,If we could all just be as brave as he was.
He will be cremated along with his favorite toy from Aunt Nancy ,and will return home here at the shelter were he will have a memorial done, He will always be remembered here in our hearts forever.
Braveheart my most special boy, I will never forget you, you will always be in my heart forever, you touched me in such a way no other has, although right now the pain of loosing you is so deep, I know you are now free, you have feet and wings again, you can now fly and perch like a normal boy ,Please don't worry about us, be free to be flying high, were no one can ever hurt you again, you just fly in that bright blue sky and if you just keep flying you will soon find many waiting for you, many to greet you with open wings.
This is not good bye, this is I will see you again. I love you so much Braveheart and one day my tears will dry and I will be able to smile thinking of how you touched so many hearts...
Be free my sweet boy :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:


By the edge of a wood, at the foot of a hill
is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
when their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,
is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or sadness,
for here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Theirs limbs are restored, their health renewed,
theirs bodies are healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,
until one day they start, and sniff the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For at just that instant, their eyes have met,
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
the time of their parting is over-at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,
has turned to joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
and then side-by-side,
they cross over.... together

  What a wonderful and brave bird.
I am new to BC and came across this page. Braveheart's story is heartbreaking.When I read about his feet, I just started crying. Poor sweet thing, thank goodness he was rescued and given love. He is in heaven and can do all he ever wanted. Poor baby. One of my babies is a rescue bird. He is missing one toe and is very scared of hands. I cry when I think of what made him that way. Your Braveheart lived through something no living creature should have to endure; thank God he had you at the end.

Thank you for honoring our baby boy Michael with your request for a memorial on your page.Please do so. Our hearts and head and everything still just aches from his absence at the house. Jess and I loved him so much. He was our little kid. Just want to let you know that on the Sunday after our little guy was taken that Jess and I were driving home, out of the sky came a double wide rainbow as if a big wing came down from heaven. It was very bright for a few moments and lingered for a long time. 100 miles later and right around the corner from home a soft rainbow came down again, followed us all the way home. I do believe our boy sees us from the Rainbow Bridge.
Love to everyone here at BC.
Kathy & Jess,
Patches and Jimmy
