NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. (WFFT) -- Animals can be some of the best companions.

That's the case for Debra Henderson, who founded Frosty and Friends Exotic Bird Rescue, Inc. over 18 years ago. 

Unfortunately, a 19-year old man stole Henderson's only car in early January, leaving her without transportation to get food for both herself and the 74 birds in her rescue sanctuary. 

The sanctuary is equipped with multiple cages tagged with the names of each bird, whether wild-caught or found within the state. 

Henderson provides unwavering attention to the birds on a daily basis, feeding them and helping heal those rescued in a disabled condition.
