Review for Patty's Parrot Palace, DeLand, FL, USA
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.
