Marylyne – Bird Boarding (Parrot Hotel Acton)


Marylyne has become our operator of The Parrot Hotel at our location in Acton. Initially, believe it or not she was scared of the birds flying around her head. Now, she doesn’t know what she would do without them. Marylyne joined The Parrot Hotel & Shop team full time in 2012 and currently runs The Parrot Hotel in Acton. When she is not caring for birds she loves to decorate, spend time outdoors, landscape her many gardens and of course taking care of the many animals on the farm.

Simone – Mobile Bird Sitting (Hamilton, Waterdown & area)

simonedowlingphotoSimone’s love for birds started in 2007 when she adopted her Hahns Macaw, Kiwi. In her spare time she volunteered at The Hamilton Aviary. She would socialize with the birds by taking them out if their cages to assist with public tours of the Aviary. Simone also helps reuniting lost and found birds in Ontario with their owners. She is also owned by a Cinnamon Conure Tinker, an Indian Ringneck Penelope and adopted 6 WAYWARD budgies to complete her flock. Simone is looking forward to caring for your feathered family members like they are her own while you are away.

Devon is looking forward to caring for your feathered friends while you are away.
