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

Rating: 5 stars  

I’ve been in complete awe of the amazing dedication, love, heart and soul, that day after day, year after year, Sonya and Steve devote to saving these beautiful birds. The rescue itself is a magical place where the love for what they do really shows. It’s a place that I could literally spent hours in fascination watching as these birds fly and play, in areas that have been totally designed to allow these birds the freedom to just be. The amount of hard to work to just feed and keep up with the cleaning blows my mind, I have 3 Macaws, 2 adopted from APR and making their food and keeping their room clean is a lot of work, I can’t even begin to imaging what it would be like feeding and cleaning up having 30 if not more birds on a daily basis, its totally mind boggling. If you are thinking about adding a parrot in your life, please educate yourself prior to trying to adopt. Adopting a parrot is a commitment not to take lightly, it’s a lifetime job. Educate yourself not only on the parrot itself, but the feeding, the vetting, the massive amount of enrichment toys(many only lasting a day), the money and time that is mandatory to owning a parrot. When you’ve done the many hours of research and feel you can live up to all the demands needed to have such amazing animal in your life, only then may I suggest you contact APR for fostering or adopting. Please adopt rather than buying from a breeder, there are more birds that need homes then any of the rescues can take in. Please consider donating to APR, so Sonya and Steve can continue their quest in saving these magnificent birds.
