I have volunteered and supported nonprofits all of my life. For several years, I even ran one. This one is like no other, and it not only cherishes the folks that support it (hey, if your donation is sustaining, you get to pair your support with a specific bird there. How cool is that!?") but they take nothing for granted. A hands-on sanctuary like this is daily work and its founder, her husband, and the volunteers that work here are passionate about keeping this place healthy and afloat. I will forever be a sustaining supporter of Pattys Parrot Palace.

We have watched Pattys grow tremendously over the past year since they relocated across the street from us in DeLand. It is humbling to see how much work and dedication it takes to run the sanctuary, and often inside-their-home intensive care station.

The dedication of Trish and Tony is reflected in their loving volunteers and the welcome to our family/visitors for occasional educational tours-well that has us convinced its worth our support! It’s so much more than a sanctuary...but a bigger word escapes me

It’s rare to find people so committed to something that would take up all of they’re free time and resources. This place cares for each rescue as if they were the only one. It’s always a pleasure go and visit. You definitely don’t leave there feeling bad for any one in the flock. The birds and other animals are happy and thriving in this ever growing and developing environment they call home now. Thanks to Patricia, her husband Tony and all the awesome volunteers she has.

I couldn't be more great full for the team at Pattys Parrot Palace for being able to take my Petey and Blu and give them the attention and care they deserve. Though it was hard to do, it definitely was the best for them. I've since been able to visit and have seen that not only are they healthy but thriving in their new flock community with all the other rescues. The time and dedication this team of animal lovers puts forth is commendable. Thank you all you do.

This is an awesome place! Trish and Tony give so much for these birds, many of them coming from horrible situations and now they can be as much of a bird as they could be with the flight aviaries. Along with giving all of these guys a new life, they give back by offering community service hours such as Bright Futures for high school students.

It takes more work than meets the eye to run this operation, Trish and Tony do it very well and make sacrifices every day so that these animals may have a better life. Thank you

I started volunteering here when I was a seventeen year old senior in highschool. Now I am a twenty year old college student and I am still here! This is a great place! Trish and Tony not only rescue and sanction all of the birds in the palace, but they very positively influence all of the people that are exposed to it. They show heart with the cause that they are behind and if they can do all of this, what can you do?

Patty’s Parrot Palace is MORE than just saving birds, we are a family!! My sister had been a volunteer there for years and invited me to go there with her one day in November 2016. Thank God that she did because I needed it. The Palace reminded me that there was more to life than me. It also reminded me of the amazing people that I have in my life!! Trish & Tony are the 2 most selfless people that I have ever met!!! Their dedication to the birds, all animals for that matter, continue to amaze me even as a volunteer. They continue to be an inspiration to me! I love them and I love being able to be a part of such an amazing organization!!! I am eternally grateful to them for allowing me to be a part of their amazing organization and family!! ♥️

The love and care that the volunteer team provides to these beautiful birds is amazing. The amount of fresh fruit and seeds that is needed to provide nutrition for the many mouths they house is staggering. It takes a team hours to prepare and provide the meals these birds need to survive. Most of them are from abused or neglected environments and when the Palace staff is called to rescue, there is no hesitation to help. When the bird needs medical treatment, many times the staff has to cover the cost of the care and put out a request and plead for donations in order to keep everything running. The volunteer staff is amazing and I wish I was financially able to give enough to help build new aviaries and provide medical care, so the team can continue to accept birds that need a safe home. Watching a bird transform from their life of neglect into a happy, talkative creature truly tugs at the heart strings and reinforces the desire to continue to help in any way possible.

Amazing place that cares for birds as well as other animals. The birds are in free flight which is unheard of. They fly free and the care and food is top notch!! I encourage you to go visit. Thank you Patty for all you do for the birds.

Patty, of Patty's Parrot Palace, is a godsend for these birds. She provides an interactive and engaging life for all of the animals under her care. I have seen the remarkable way she can rehabilitate birds who have suffered cruelty and neglect at the hands of previous owners. This is truly a passion project for her.

The volunteers who assist her on-site have become a tight-knit flock of their own. She comforts not only the birds but provides a safe space and sanctuary for all.

Pattys has continued to be one of the best things in my life. I have been greatly influenced in a positive way by my work with the rescue and by the life-long relationships I have created. The sanctuary is not only a safe haven for deserted, homeless or needy birds, but is also a place for people to have a positive experience. I am extremely proud of my birdy mama.

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.

The palace has provided the perfect home to Bubbles, Juno and all of the amazing birds that have come through. It is an amazing organization to be a part of and I will continue to remain a permanent part of Pattys.

After adopting Bubbles, it fills me with joy each time I see how improved he is and how great of a life he is living. Trish will always text me if I haven't been by in awhile because Bubbles gets sad and she does her best to keep him satisfied in my absence. It is such a relief since I'm a full-time student and Bubbles has truly become my child. Not only has the rescue grown, but so have I and my heart. Definitely a top rescue and best place for any bird to live out their life. I'm so proud to be a part of this!
