Review for Gabriel Foundation, Elizabeth, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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 know they they are contacted daily from people wanting to relinquish their birds - a difficult position to be in, as I'm guessing every reputable animal shelter knows. I've seen them spend an amazing amount of time with potential adopters, to help them find the right bird, educate them on the proper care, and be there to work through any problems a past adopter may be having with their bird. Working with an animal shelter is not for the faint-hearted... There are heartbreaks along with the many happy stories. It is also incredibly rewarding though.

The Gabriel Foundation has done nothing but improve since I've been there and I honestly cannot recommend them highly enough. Whether you choose to volunteer here or assist the birds in another way, this organization is a great choice.

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

Organize more fund raisers. Possibly find ways to make the aviary more visitor-friendly (especially for children)with areas where people can visit safely with birds for a donation fee, etc.
