Review for APR All Parrot Rescue, GRAHAM, WA, USA
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!
