The people are great, and the birds are even better. The people I have volunteered with have had hearts of gold especially the lady in charge (Trish). I have learned much about birds as well as what it means to do good.

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.

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 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!

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.

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

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!
