Review for Gabriel Foundation, Elizabeth, CO, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I can only speak to what I observed at a recent visit to the TGF Aviary and Birdbrain. We were greeted by exceedingly friendly staff, the facilities were clean, and it was clear everyone cared tremendously for the parrot inhabitants. There absolutely were a lot of birds at both locations but at no time did it appear that these creatures were being given anything but the best care (clean cages, fresh water, outside time, human interaction, lots of toys, etc). This is certainly a huge undertaking and it saddens me that animals like parrots are treated as though they are disposable requiring organizations like TGF to appear to be bursting at the seams with animals. Unfortunately one can't sit in a room with a flock of parrots and pick the cutest one like puppies or kittens and walk out the door. The process is time consuming (as it should be) which lends itself to a lot of parrots waiting for a home.

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

Continue to improve communication between potential adopters with frequent follow ups and encouragement (which IS happening now).
