Patty’s Parrot Palace is a wonderful organization, and I am proud to be a volunteer. The birds are very happy and well cared for! Trish and Tony have set up a great system where food, water, and newspaper bedding are changed daily. Cages and bowls are cleaned regularly with a non-toxic solution, and every bird gets so much love, affection, and attention. Thanks to Trish and Tony for providing such a great environment for your birds, and for your volunteers as well!

From my little time spent helping these fantastic creatures, I can definitely say that Patty's Parrott Palace is a truly outstanding program. The owners, Trish & Tony, show major care and love to these birds as if they were their own. The amount of compassion they express, cannot by any means be surmounted by anything else. It has been a very awesome experience to work with these lovely people as well with the parrots.

I first visited Patty's Parrot Palace about 3 years and I recently started volunteering there after being so impressed. The compassion, love and care provided to the beautiful creatures who have "landed" here is beyond reproach and evident from the moment you walk in. The facility is immaculate as well as the cages of approximately 60 parrots who reside there. Trish and Tony Koile are the owners/operators of the sanctuary. Their dedication to providing a permanent home for the parrots in their care is absolute and unconditional. Their love and devotion is on display every day for each and every bird - from the largest Macaw to the smallest Lovebird.
I would like to add that their small army of volunteers appears to have been chosen with the care of the parrots being of the utmost importance. I have worked with several of the volunteers and can attest to the fact they do love the birds.
The plan for the near future is to construct a free-flight aviary. This would be so wonderful for the "babies" and the realization of long-held dream of Trish and Tony.
Without a doubt, this is the best rescue aviary I have every visited

Patty's Parrot Palace is such an amazing organization. They do amazing things for these birds and I'm so proud to be a volunteer! These birds couldn't be any luckier than they are at the palace.

This place is amazing. From the start I was welcomed into the lives of the birds and got to help out. Their food and water is changed everyday and Trish and Tony are really nice and helpful when you are having trouble with something. The Birds are in a great place.

Amazing place!!!!! These birds are SO well taken care of and loved by every single one of the volunteers there. Every bird gets a fresh clean meal every single day, their papers changed and their cages cleaned. The owners of this non profit are wonderful people! They are serious about the love they have for these birds and it's not everyday you see unconditional love like theirs.

With nothing to gain and everything to lose Trish and Tony Koile put the birds first and their needs second. Housing over 50 birds in their own home is admirable but the birds need more room to fly. Soon enough the flock will move on to greater heights where the birds will be relocated to a large property where they can experience their wild sides. Over 2 years of knowing this nutty family and I wouldn't trade a moment of it!

I've officially been at the Palace for over a year now and I must say I can't imagine life without this place. Trish and Tony are two of the most remarkable people I have ever met. They put the needs of their birds and volunteers before their own needs. If you need hours for whatever reason, Patty's Parrot Pallace is a perfect fit for you. I must say that if you do choose to volunteer here, be prepared to work hard. I've seen a number of people asked to leave due to laziness and lack of commitment. If you are willing to show up and work hard, soon enough volunteering here becomes more enjoyable than anything!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide Trish and Tony with a larger facility to house their birds that isn't in their house.

As an aspiring veterinarian, I sought out a charity that would help me gain some experience with animals and determine whether or not I was entering the right career path. Not only have I gained a better perspective on birds, but I also found a great place run by great people. Trish and Tony, the couple that run the charity, are two of the most selfless people you will ever meet. They have welcomed over 40 birds into their home and care for each bird better than most of us could care for one bird. However, two people simply cannot care for this number of birds without help. Personally, I feel like you get more out of donating any free time to volunteer. Of course donations are greatly appreciated as well. After 4 months at Patty's, I don't think I will ever stop going. Birds can have a big impact on your life, even if you're not a bird person.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Everything is perfect at the palace, but extra space for the ever growing amount of space would be helpful. Donations would certainly assist in helping with the spatial issues.

I've been volunteering at Patty's Parrot Palace for a little over a year now and I have loved every single time. What started as me going to support my girlfriend turned out to become one of the most rewarding experiences for me. Seeing first hand what goes on at the sanctuary has opened my eyes to the struggle of rescuing birds. Trish and Tony's love and commitment to the babies is truly admirable. I am excited to watch Patty's Parrot Palace grow into the vision that Trish and Tony have for it. This is not just any place to volunteer and get community service hours, but it is also a place where bonds are formed between people who share the same passion.

Time really does fly when you're having fun! I have been volunteering with the flock for a year now and it seems as if just yesterday was my first day. I was hooked since day one. Volunteering at Patty's Parrot Palace is extremely fulfilling for me as I see the struggle that Trish and Tony go through on a daily. Remarkably, it is no chore for them as they have a love so strong for the flock. The bonds that they have developed with the birds leaves me in awe. It is almost as if the birds are grateful for being in the care of such loving and caring people. Trish and Tony have a passion and dedication that never ceases to amaze me. It is a feeling that I love to be surrounded by, therefore its no wonder that they can expect me to keep volunteering. I am proud to be a part of a team that works together for a selfless cause and I am truly blessed to have Trish and Tony in my life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change a thing! I just want to see our feathered beauties fly freely in an aviary.

The energy and passion felt at Patty's Parrot Palace is intoxicating and contagious. The dedication given to all of the birds is something to learn from. I help out once a week and that day alone is extremely satisfying. In the short time that I've known Trish and Tony, I've realized that they are two of the best people I know. The time that they take out of their daily lives to give to the birds is inspiring. They're also very attentive of their volunteers and treat them as if they were another member of the family. My first time there, I simply tagged along with my girlfriend who volunteers weekly, so I didn't expect to make it a habitual thing. However, after spending my time there, meeting Trish and Tony, and seeing how much work is needed, I was hooked. I fell in love with the birds and the atmosphere. I especially love knowing that there are still people out there who have genuine good hearts and good intentions. Thank you Trish and Tony for an awesome experience!
