I just love spending time here with the birds and of course the people! Deciding to volunteer here is one of the best choices I've ever made. Everyone here really loves the birds and it is shown through everything they do.

Pattys Parrot Palace was my last chance to get my Bright Futures hours, and thanks to the great people who work here, I was able to get my hours. The people who work here are nice and generous and definitely improved my time volunteering. The birds are kept in clean, safe, and healthy environments. I always enjoyed coming here to interact with the birds.

Pattys Parrot Palace, a place where these birds can feel loved by Trish, Tony and volunteers who give them much love and unconditional care. For me it was one of the best experiences to have volunteered and to have been part of an incredible team.

From the moment I saw bubba I knew she was my bird. The palace rescued her from such horrible condition. The palace not only has taken a once neglected parrot and showed her love and affection but she is now with her endless love scarlet. The two are inseparable. I want to thank Patricia and Tony for not only taking care of bubba but all the the birds in the sanctuary.

Wonderful charity. I made the decision to become a donor when I witnessed the passion and dedication Patty and her volunteers have. These beautiful birds are so loved and cared for, many have been neglected and unloved for so long. It is wonderful to watch how they flourish with the proper care and compassion.

This non-profit parrot sanctuary is a life saver for all the parrots who are cared for there. I have been volunteering for over 2 years and have never seen such selfless giving by the owners and all the other volunteers! The "little guys" we care for are all heartbreakers.

This rescue does amazing things for parrots in need. Some of them come from horrible situations and are now able to take human interaction. Trish has a humongous heart for all the people who work with her and the parrots that she takes care of. She goes out of her way to make everyone comfortable and getting the attention they need to strive with her. I don't regret sending my first email to her and going to volunteer the first day, every day after has been a real pleasure.

Patty's Parrot Palace has been extremely welcoming ever since I've started volunteering there. From the first moment she made you feel welcomed and appreciated.

She also made it a very educational experience which was partially the reason I was there. She had answered every question and explains everything from nutrition to medicine administration.

"Proper husbandry" doesn't even begin to describe the treatment these animals receive. I've worked in other bird related non-profits and the quality of diets and socialization that I've witnessed since working here is uncomparable.

I would recommend this facility for anyone look to enrich their lives through volunteering or for those looking for animal care experience

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.

I loved being able to give my time to Pattys it was so much fun! Everyone was so kind and informative and being able to work with the birds was the most wonderful thing I have ever experienced. Trish has such a beautiful heart and being my first volunteer opertunity it really set a high bar. The work and love that they put into their organization is so amazing. Beautiful souls trying to do what's right and they really treat you like part of the family. It's not easy what they do, it takes so much hard work and effort and I was so happy to have been a part of their team and help take care of the birds!

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.

I was a volunteer at Patty's Parrot Palace during the Summer of 2015. It was an awesome experience to be able to help take care of so many exotic birds. I aspire to be a vet and it was great exposure to exotic animals and the other volunteers and Trish were also very friendly. We all worked as a team to take care of 52 parrots that came from all different backgrounds of abuse, neglect, or just abandonment. It is great to see how Patty's Parrot Palace gives these birds a second chance.

My green wing took flight and landed fifty feet off the ground in a tree I couldn't climb. When she moved on Patricia retrieved her, gave her food and water and took wonderful care of her!!! Thank you PPP!!!

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!
