I cannot even begin to vocalize how amazing Patty's Parrot Palace is for the birds and any people who get to have an experience here. After 2 and a half years, I can absolutely say I am a life member; Trish and Tony have made the most amazing home for over 75 parrots. Any animal would be lucky to have so much love in there life.
Patty is the great bird defender, nurturer and protector. In addition to the immense undertaking of her birds' daily needs, Patty also finds time to advocate for animal rights and shine a light on the injustice of confined birds in captivity.
With limited resources and in a rather short period of time, she has transformed her nonprofit into a fully operational mission and it has fast become a sanctuary for more than just her flock, but also for the many volunteers who graciously assist with cleaning and feeding duties on a rotating weekly schedule.
When Patty sets her mind to something, she pursues it single-mindedly until it gets done. In the case of PPP, she has undoubtedly altered the lives of many birds who would have met tragic ends if they had not been rescued by Patty and her team.
Patty's Parrot Palace has some of the most dedicated and loving individuals you will ever meet. Trish and Tony are committed to seeing the flock in flying large aviaries and are going on year five in pursuit of their vision. They have been blessed in overcoming huge hurdles over the past year and are still standing firm. They are amazingly supportive of each other in caring for over fifty birds daily. Their teamwork and their love for the flock is truly inspiring. I fully support their goals for the palace and am proud to be a part of Patty's Parrot Palace as a Board Member and volunteer. I am happy to serve the flock on all levels because they deserve it. I am grateful for Chris and Alicia for caring for the birds on a daily basis. As young adults in college, they could be doing anything else, but they choose to support the flock in all of their day to day care. Over the past years I have met some super friends who still volunteer to this day. It's a special bond we all share just by doing what we love, caring for the flock. Aside from our beautiful flock and all of their individual personalities, I especially enjoy loving on Cheech, a small green, grey and yellow Senegal who love me. I look forward to hearing his kisses and him just hanging out on my shoulder.
Patty's Parrot Palace continues to hold a very special place in my heart. I cherish every day spent with this outstanding nonprofit. We are a great bunch who will do whatever we can to provide the very best for our babies.
Another wonderful year with the flock. I have come to adore the composition of Patty's Parrot Palace and what it means to a part of the bigger picture: helping and giving. The palace is driven by compassion and the clear vision of giving the flock the very best. Many come to the palace not knowing what to expect, but it is clear how we feel when we partake, we feel connected to those beautiful birds and to the volunteers, all under one cause. Volunteering there, you attain a deep understanding of how much of an impact the pet trade has on pet overpopulation, and consequently on the lives of these amazing birds. You become an avian advocate the moment you learn their stories and can't help but feel the need to be a part of their lives! All 56 of them! Next thing you know, you're going daily or weekly, and doing everything you can you keep their attention. You're singing and dancing with them, and from the top of your lungs out comes "Wackawackawoo"! A funky word you learned from our feathered loves, Baby and Rock. It all becomes natural and you're captured into that bigger picture, where you only only needed 20 hours of community service and it turns into some much more meaningful over the past two years. It opens your eyes and your heart to a need that was not visible before, stronger conservation, protection and education for these gorgeous and intelligent birds. Volunteering at the palace becomes a part of your routine and you share this passion with the people you love, because it makes you feel so great to give back. As you see, there is no secret as to why I volunteer with the palace. Trish and Tony are extraordinary people with a tremendous capacity to give their all at all times. There are no days off and not all days are easy at the palace, but they keep up with an contagious attitude and energy. It's a privilege to help in spreading our wings and in watching Trish and Tony's vision develop into much more than they ever imagined. I really love you guys, thank you!
Love the birds, love the people, love this place! I haven't met anyone more dedicated to their cause than Trish and Tony. Absolutely amazing and the birds are so happy!
As a board member of Patty's Parrot Palace it is amazing what we have been able to accomplish in 3-4 years. Our name has become well known with the area high schools as the Bright Futures candidates work with the flock socializing, upkeep and playing! Not only does this benefit the birds but I believe these young adults who are headed into a new chapter of their life. They appear to walk away with something to remember and hopefully apply. Once they hear of the unfortunate lives some of these birds have endured it changes their thoughts on "just getting a pet". Our goal is to bring awareness to the community and to assist these birds in living out there life in flight as close to being a "real" bird as they can be.
