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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

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
