Programs:

The Gabriel Foundation's experienced staff members work intensively with individuals interested in adopting birds. The Foundation has established a structured screening and adoption process that begins with the Parrot Adoption Protocol. The Foundation initially requires applicants to complete an adoption application, proceed through a series of telephone and/or e-mail interviews and verifies the applicant's references. If the Foundation's adoption committee approves the applicant as an appropriate bird adopter, multiple site visits are encouraged for the potential adapter. So often people "look" for a bird of a particular species, when in the Foundation's experience most birds will "choose" the person they prefer which contributes to the success of the match. For persons visiting from other states, a multi-day stay is recommended while the Foundation monitors and assesses the applicant's interaction with birds and the staff has an opportunity to become familiar with the potential adapter. The bird's housing, routine and care, personality, history and inclusion into the adopter's home are discussed at great length. Depending upon the location of the potential adopter, the Foundation or its representative may conduct home inspections prior to and/or post adoption. The Foundation invests a tremendous amount of time and resources, pre-and post-adoption, to ensure to the best of its ability, the best fit between the adopter and adoptee bird, and most importantly, the bird's future welfare.

Mission:

TGF operates an expansive Aviary and Adoption Center that cares for up to 400 birds daily.

This organization only wants your money. They will not get back to you. They will take your membership money, or your application money and you will never hear another word. Absolutely awful. It seems this kind of activity should be illegal, but from other reviews I've read on the web, this is ... more »

I am a long-time volunteer for this organization and I continue to volunteer because I believe in what they do and I feel they always have the best interests of the birds in their care at heart.

I have been a monthly donor to The Gabriel Foundation for over 2 years now. I follow their activities on Facebook and visit both of their locations occasionally. The facilities are clean and the birds appear well-cared for. It does seem a bit crowded, but shelters generally are. I think that they do... more »
