Review for Gabriel Foundation, Elizabeth, CO, USA
I’ve known about The Gabriel Foundation for many years. However, I had no need for their services until my best friend of 22 years, my African Gray named BG, died of cancer in 2019. Outside of being heartbroken, I knew my health would not allow me to commit to another chatterbox.
So what to do with the giant cage, a stash of new toys I had hoarded for her over the years, cooked food, pellets, new rope perches, etc.? I contacted Gabriel Foundation. They sent a wonderful volunteer, Kathy and her husband to pick everything up. They emailed me a receipt. On top of that, they took pictures and videos of who was benefiting from BG’s goodies and enjoying them. It made my day and I was thrilled!
I still can’t go look at the birds but I’ll get there...in the meantime, I took a large load of newspapers out later that fall. I have a huge pile of newspapers and cardboard to take out there now.
People do not understand the commitment it takes to care for exotic birds. I loved it and was fascinated with BG’s sense of humor and vocabulary. And when people give up on a bird, The Gabriel Foundation is the best place for the bird to be until they find a forever, appropriate home.
