|Hi CocoPuff--I'm Sky running for BOTM
Hi Every birdie, Sky here with a two part series on
THE GABRIEL FOUNDATION.
The Gabriel Foundation (GF)was founded by Julie Murad, just outside the beautiful city of Aspen, Colorado. Julie, who has been involved with birds for over 40 years saw a desperate need for a Sanctuary that would take in homeless, unwanted birds. The GF is a non-profit bird Rescue and Rehabilitation organization whose primary mission is to provide a complete physical, mental and environmentally secure place for all parrots, whether permit residents or those available for adoption.
Their goal is to bring education to the public. They strive to have proper legal documentation, open financial reports, and extensive support services to adoptive owners. To ensure the birds happiness in their new home, the GF provides constant post-adoption follow-ups. They also provide the bird community with in-depth, reliable educational material and resources.
Julie Murad is quoted as saying, ``Our mission is to raise awareness to the correct, ethical care and respect deserving of all birds. We work to bring acceptance that birds are NOT placed on this Earth for man to dominate or ``OWN` but to lovingly and respectfully co-exist.``
``they, they birds can not speak for themselves. It is the GF`s objective to be that voice. Daily we are bombarded by persons wishing to ``get rid of their birds.`` from all over the country. Education will, we hope, stop this ``disposable`` mentality people have.
We work to educate people, to show them them that birds are living, loving, emotional beings, that deserve to live their lives well cared for and loved. Some parrots live 60-80 years."
The Gabriel Foundation is an part of the Association of Avian Veterinarians, whose task is to develop a standard by which all birds must be cared for regardless where they live; i.e. rescues, zoos, private homes, pet stores etc. They are also partnered with the World Parrot Welfare Alliance, ( WPWA) working to develop and promote a greater awareness of the needs of parrots in captivity.
Currently the GF is home to 500 Psittacine birds, many of which are awaiting adoption.
