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 the best they are able to do with the resources and staff they have. I will continue to donate to them as long as I am financially able to do so.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Improve their marketing and adoption promotions. More resources will help them do more for the birds, I believe.

Do NOT donate to this organization. The Foundation is loosing money rapidly, packing birds into smaller and smaller cages and areas and continuing to take dozens of birds in monthly. The founder, Julie Murad, is keeping birds in her garage and packing them into the warehouse behind the retail store. If you are considering sending your beloved bird to The Gabriel Foundation, demand to see the back of The Birdbrain on Acoma Street in Denver. This is most likely where your bird will end up. Also, take a walk around the aviary and take a close look at the poor diet the birds are now receiving. At one time TGF was one of the best, but it has rapidly declined and the founder is taking in every bird that she can get her hands on. Support a parrot rescue that knows their limits. Don't support a nonprofit organization that is behind on all their bills, can't afford to feed their animals a quality diet and yet continues to bring in more and more animals.

I am planning on adopting a parrot and had the opportunity to visit their impressive aviary last week. This group is outstanding in respect to the operation and care facility they have achieved. Their good work to take in the 60 odd parrots that were found in a dire situation, housed in a place with no running water or electricity, is most impressive. Some of the birds I met have been cared for in their facility for 3 years. I look forward to my new friend and actively participating in this organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

by visiting their facilities both in Denver and Elizabeth and am in the process of adopting a parrot

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help bring in more dollars to expand their operation and outreach capabilities

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting to meet the patients...

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Everyone I have met are very committed to the cause

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand educating the public as to the demanding/challenging role of a parrot owner, it is definately not for everyone, but can be very rewarding and a source of great pleasure to the right person

Ways to make it better...

I was in the position to adopt a dozen of the birds

One thing I'd also say is that...

I have never seen such an impressive aviary in terms of total care. They have recently added a onsite vet to care for the 400 plus birds who they care for, birds from accross the US as well as around the world
