Each year thousands of parrots die while waiting for permanent homes or after being abandoned. Sadly many people still consider companion animals disposable. APR is dedicated to finding forever homes for parrots while ensuring they don’t ever end up unwanted again.  We provide a safe haven for healing while preparing each bird for a forever home. 

A portion of our birds have medical or genetic disabilities and may require additional time in rescue. If you foster, we will always make sure that you are comfortable with your foster and at any time remove a foster that does not fit in your home as soon as possible.

There are NO paid positions within our organization. We cannot reimburse for expenses related to volunteering, but we do suggest you speak with our tax professionals. We are a 501c3 and you may be able to deduct expenses you incur like gas and supplies as well as any items you donate to support the birds in care. 

If you want to rescue from us we would love to find out more about you and what you hope to offer a pet in need. Below is our Volunteer Application for you to fill out to start the process. If you have any difficulties contact us for assistance. You DON’T have to be an expert to adopt or foster.  We simply need confident animal lovers willing to make a difference one pet at a time. In rescue you CAN be a hero and save a life every day with a kind word and time to show you care.
