Best rescue I’ve ever seen! Sonya and her family really take care of the birds entrusted to them and are very open with everything they do and also they help teach us how to take care of our babies.
Sonya and Steve are nothing short of amazing. They truly care for the well being of every animal in their care. Even when at capacity, Sonya will work to find room or foster placement for a parrot in real need. I adopted Gigi, 22-26 year old Timneh African Grey, in January and she is everything we were hoping for. She is getting more comfortable every day and we love watching her blossom. Sonya has been a great help and resource for us, and everyone in the APR family. I definitely recommend All Parrot Rescue.
I have never met Sonya and Steve but these two are amazing the work and effort they put in to the rescue is what I look for in a place that cares for animals any animals These two have gone above and beyond for the animals I look forward to the videos Sonya post and from these even though I have been in rescue myself I learned things I did not know I hope they can continue what they do as we need good rescues that really care about what they do .
Just over a month ago I had the privilege of adopting Sammie from APR. while there I saw an intake of two new birds and the magic Steve and Sonya worked welcoming them into their fold. I have learned so much from Sonya’s Facebook posts and am constantly impressed by care the birds in care recieve. So happy to be part of the APR family!
Networking with APR with relocating parrots from different areas of the country has been imperative. Unfortunately, not all cities have a place like APR available to them. These birds are in a safe place because of APR. I trust APR completely with safety, diet, enrichment, vetting and most importantly, love for these birds. Adoption success has been proven!
Sonya contacted me about a wild caught Congo that was being very territorial. She knew i loved grays. So we took him in. He be came very attached to my youngest daughter. There knowledge and care for the birds they bring in is truly amazing
Great family run rescue. I recommend them to everyone I know. Always put the birds needs in the forefront.
They care so much about the fate of the birds. Their lives are dedicated to them.
APR is one of the best experiences I've had. Steve and Sonya are dedicated to making life better for all the birds who transition in their care. They both have loving, healing hearts and the ability to diagnose physical and mental stresses. Then, either medicate, fix broken bones and parrot hearts with patience and love. In so doing, they've created a village of loving caregivers for these beautiful, winged creatures. We're able to share information and advice...Sonya always updates the latest nutrition, medications and suggestions. Bottom line...DON'T SHOP, ADOPT! And if you can, donate. I'm a foster mother of Snuggles, one of the most delightful, unique characters who ever crossed their threshold. A little Goffin Cockatoo who talks, sing, dances and argues. All it takes is patience and love.
Sonya and Steve are the most inspirational and humbled people you will ever encounter. there love for what they do whether its for training others how to be a great parent to a parrott, teaching or just listening they do it all with love. Every Parrot Counts no matter what the circumstances may be. They inform everyone they engage everyone and they take action where others wont. Sonya and Steve are true advocacy for the Parrots for they have no voice.
They do all with compassion i truly love the Brewers.
The directors of this rescue are the hardest-working people that I know. I've been to the facility 3 times now, and one or both of them are always out cleaning cages. The don't depend on volunteers to do the dirty work, they do it themselves. Selfless, compassionate and hard-working. These people deserve all the help they can get. The birds are so loved and so well taken care of. They take the broken, neglected and the saddest cases and provide them with veterinary care, excellent diets, attention and love.
Having worked as an animal shelter manager - converting it to a no-kill facility - a founder of a registered 501c3 dog and cat rescue, serving on multiple Humane Society Boards as President, and a foster and rehabilitator for other animal rescues, I can say with full confidence that A.P.R. is the real deal. We have adopted from this organization and with great pride and humility. This rescue truly executes what all rescues should strive to do for their animals: enrichment, quality nutrition, rehabilitation, vetting, and proper placement in forever homes.
I have had nothing but good experiences with the organization and the wonderful people who operate it.
I rescue parrots in Hawaii and sometimes can’t find suitable placement on our tiny island. We had a special needs bird who required medical care and treatment beyond what we could provide. With one call we arranged transport to APR. They took in the bird, got him specialized avian vet care, nursed him back to health and eventually placed him with a wonderful loving family who gave him all the love he deserved.
On another occasion I called asking for advice for another sick parrot. 2 days later a box arrived unexpectedly, full of everything required to treat the bird’s illness. I couldn’t believe it!
Working in rescue can be very difficult. It’s costly, sometimes heartbreaking but mostly rewarding. Although I know many people throughout the country who help unwanted and abused animals, I feel like APR is one of the most trustworthy organizations I’ve encountered.
I don’t hesitate to endorse APR as an exceptional non profit organization. They are honest, hard working and put the animals first. They are my go to .org when I have a difficult case that’s beyond my scope of expertise. I donate to their cause when I can and will continue to support APR every way possible. They always come through. If anything ever happens to me I want my flock to go to APR because I know they will make sure the parrots land in a good loving home.

I am so in awe of APR! The way they make all the rescues feel like family members and a part of their home. Steve and Sonya are definitely the bird whisperers. What they accomplished with so many birds that have special needs and finding homes for them all is amazing! I love being involved with APR!! I just wish I was closer.
I have been following APR for about 5 years now and year after year Sonya and Steve never fail to amaze me. I honestly have yet to meet anyone with as much dedication and spirit that these two have for their parrot rescue. While rescuing and rehoming parrots is a main goal of APR, what has become increasingly apparent to them is the need for more education. They are tenacious educators and a big part of their rescue is to inform people regarding the reality of being a “parront” and what to expect as far as the care, diet and behavior of parrots.
I have had a cockatiel for 22 years and I’ve learned SO much from their posts and wealth of knowledge, and I am still learning!
One of the main reasons people surrender their birds is a lack of knowledge on the care and behavior of birds. APR is on a mission to change this.
A few years back I dropped off some donations to the rescue and got to witness first hand the love and the hard work that they put forth in their rescue. And the love, you could just feel it when you walked in the door! APR is a full time job in itself and they manage to do it while working their normal jobs. While some days are harder than others they always rise above, forge forward and inspire everyone in the process of doing so.
Their dedication and fierce commitment to their rescue/cause is what this world needs more of. Follow APR on Facebook, you wont be sorry! Also, several times a year they do an online auction as a fundraiser and you can support them by donating or bidding on items. It is a fun way to support APR!
These two were great to deal with. Invite you into their home and share their love for these birds. This is a great set up and I wish I had such a place. I wish they lived closer so I could help out. I wish I had more room and time to take more. They are willing to share their knowledge, and so is the rest of the village
You won't find a rescue that cares more about their mission than APR. I've learned so much from them and will always be thankful for everything they do for the parrot community
Sonya and Steve stop at nothing to put these parrots needs first-emotional, physical, and medically. No matter what the handicap, APR is there for them with loving arms and kindness. Always before their own needs. Often rescuing them from dire situations. I have adopted 3 parrots from them and each one has been more than a blessing.
APR is a rescue that I am proud to follow and support. The owners, Sonya and Steve, do an amazing job caring for and showing love to all of their rescues. I have learned so much about parrots with disabilities because of the APR page and all the info posted. The needs of the rescues are always put first and it’s very obvious. The owners take their time with the adoption process and pairing parrots with the right caregivers. This is a rescue I trust and I would highly recommend it for people seriously considering adoption or people who want to learn more about parrots by following the APR page.
All Parrot Rescue has been amazing to me and my bird family. Truly a warrior in the fight against abandoned animals. No matter the day, or time, they are there for their animals no matter what they need. They are also so supportive of their people who are apart of the APR family. I could go on about how amazing they are, but I'd need a lot more typing space. Love you, APR.
