I cannot say enough positives about this organization. The owner and her spouse, and the other volunteers I have had the privilege to work with, are exceptional people all around. They truly care about their avian family....and the birds are just that......family! With over 100 hundred volunteer hours in a period of 7 months, I cannot emphasize enough how well-cared-for the birds are and how loved they are; their cages, papers (liners for waste droppings), water and food bowls, toys, surrounding areas are cleaned meticulously each day with all- natural solutions. Feeding time was my favorite time! They really enjoy their feeding of organic nuts, grains and fresh fruit. It's also a climate controlled place to meet their needs. The birds also receive lots of social interaction. Some birds come from abused, neglected and forgotten backgrounds, and I have had the privilege to see them evolve and see who they are meant to be, all due the efforts of Patty's Parrot Palace.

I have been volunteering at Patty's Parrot Palace. I have enjoyed the experience and find it very fullfilling. The birds are quite beautiful and require daily support. The volunteers and staff were extreemly supportive and patient as I got to know, and feel comfortable with, the birds

I have been volunteering at Patty's Parrot Place for a few months and has been one of the most rewarding experience i have ever had! The people are friendly and very helpful. It is amazing to see so many people come together sharing the same passion to help the birds have a second change and strive for them to have a better life. Everyone makes sure each bird is loved and taken care for. HIghly recommend this place!! Love volunteering at a place where everyone is putting aside their needs to help others!!!

I have been volunteering at Patty's Parrot Palace for almost four months now and it has been great. All of the volunteers work their butt to help Trish and Tony give these birds what they need. Everyone here is like a family and they feel at home when volunteering. I would not want to volunteer anywhere else.

I have been volunteering for over a month with the most dedicated, friendly, loving people that put their entire hearts into this organization. By doing their best with what they have they have made the lives of all the birds extraordinary. This is the first volunteering ive ever experienceed where everyone on the job is fully committed to the cause. I love this place, the birds, and everyone involved.

My daughter and I began volunteering at Pattys Parrot Palace so that my daughter could earn community service hours for a scholarship. We never knew what a fun learning experience that could be. From the moment we walked into their house, we were in awe on how well the birds are taken care of. Everything is clean, sanitary, and organized. I fostered 2 parrots years ago, and knew how much work was involved; but WOW, taking care of 60 birds the way that Trish and Tony do is quite the undertaking. And, I never realized either how expensive their food can be. Trish and Tony treat all their volunteers like family from the moment they walk in. In between cleaning and changing water and food bowls, cleaning cages, bathing, sweeping, dusting, feeding, etc., Trish and Tony educate the volunteers with regards to each bird's story on how they ended up at the palace, and what each particular bird's needs are. Trish and Tony treat the birds like their very own children. The atmosphere at the palace is enthusiastic and pure happiness for the birds. It's amazing how much love the birds have for Trish and Tony and the volunteers. Trish and Tony always put the birds' needs foremost, and thus are having to move from their current location in order to accommodate the palace's growth. Although my daughter and I are sad that they are moving, we will always be grateful for the opportunity that we had with them. One thing I know for certain, if I were a bird, I'd hope to be taken care of by Trish and Tony.

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

provide them the land and space they need as they continue to grow

I have been volunteering at Pattys parrot palace for almost a year now, and every time I go to help out I am impressed with how wonderful Trish and Tony are. They both hold jobs out of the home and still dedicate every moment they have to the birds in their care. I absolutely love how each and every single bird there can be handled by either Tony or Trish. When I first started I was a bit concerned because the sanctuary is run out of their home, but after that first day I have even more respect for the two of them. they have given up a portion of their home to ensure that birds who need a loving home have exactly just that. I was especially touched by a recent event that showed Trish and Tony's true love of birds; they have a small pionus named Garcia, and Garcia a few months ago had a stroke. The road to recovery for Garcia has been long and tough but, they never gave up hope on her. Trish and Tony hand fed Garcia for weeks and she currently is getting better. she has reopened her eyes and can eat on her own, it truly is an awe-inspiring account of their dedication to help any bird in need. Trish has a heart of gold and it really is something else to see her loving up on each of her feathered babies. I really can't say enough how amazing this organization is and I want people to understand that there really isn't many rescues as amazing as Pattys Parrot Palace. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THEM! : )

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

help them get the land/room they so desperately need. people are calling everyday trying to find a home for their exotic birds. And Trish would love more than anything to not have to turn away birds, but they need room! So donate! so Trish and Tony can give the birds they currently have more room and can open their doors to even more birds in need. : )
