I met the Pres. forever ago on a personal level. She's continued through the years not only taking amazing care of her family, but also the rescue babies she's taken in. She's had birds as long as I've known her. Now she has created one of the most amazing bird rescues ever (not being bias ) These babies have become her life , making sure they have the most amazing lives while with her. They get the best of everything she can possibly provide, including diets, play time etc. Not only are they inside but she now has accomplished an outside aviary for the babies to spend time in, and set up perfect. IF you ever have concerns, have to give up your baby etc. Make sure you check this rescue out and know you would have no worries while here or living here.

06/05/2019 This rescue is run very well. Always clean and maticulous. The owner takes get strides in caring for her flock and she still has time to help other animals get rehomed as well. She enjoys teaching others about birds and has a feather game on line, of what feather is this? Sort of even I get stumped. If you need help rehoming or just plain help in any capacity this is the lady you need to contact.

Every experience I’ve had with T&A Rescue has been a positive one. They are generous, knowledgeable, and kind. They really are passionate about what they do, they truly love the birds. They love all animals! I’ve reached out many times for help with my own birds and they are always willing to lend a hand or share their knowledge. The flock are happy and spoiled! I would definitely recommend if you need information on birds, need a rescue to surrender to, or are looking to adopt/foster, T&A is a great and wise place to look!

Crystal and Danny helped my family grow. Due to a work related injury abs surgery, I couldn't adopt until after my recovery. They drove an 8+hour round trip to pick up two orphaned green cheek conures, helped raise them and tame in their own home, letting us visit. The cornucopia of information on how to take care of the birds, and how to all become a forever family together was amazing. Even after a month, we still have contact and question and answer sessions weekly, helping us through all the small things.

T&A is a great parrot rescue. They do a wonderful job educating others how to properly care for different species of birds. All their birds get fresh food daily and they have nice aviaries for outdoor time.

They do lots of educational help, very caring to people and the parrots are treated very well. They could use more space as it's run out of their home.
