KUSA - Gabriel is a rescue/rehabilitation center for relinquished birds - especially birds in the parrot family.
Some of The Gabriel Foundation's birds available for adoption:
WhiteBird, m. Citron cockatoo, about 12 y.o., social and interactive with a variety of people. White Bird and 7 other birds were rescued by TGF when their owner in Idaho died.
Tamika and Zuzu, around 15 years old, are a bonded pair of African parrots who are currently available for adoption together. They behave very nicely at events and will make wonderful companions to the right person some day! Like some couples, these two birds enjoy each other's company but prefer to share separate "bedrooms"; they each have their own cages and otherwise enjoy time spent together everywhere. They are a long time couple who along with 12 other birds and two dogs were rescued by TGF when their owner lost her home due to eviction. They behave very nicely at events and will make wonderful companions to the right person some day!
Katie, Umbrella 20 y.o. female cockatoo is a TGF alumni. Katie was adopted out in 2001 and was returned to us in 2012. Katie's great with kids, men, women, other birds and even dogs. Katie can be vocal at times so any adopter must make certain that she has many things to keep her busy throughout her day and that she gets an opportunity for plenty of physical exercise and sleep.
Ivy, f. Citron cockatoo hatched in 1999. She lived with her family until 2008 when she came to us for long term boarding. After many years, her family decided that they are unable to take her back. She is a lovely bird and enjoys many people.
Samantha, f. Blue and Gold macaw, hatched in 1999. She came into TGF along with her friend, Ivy in 2008 for Long term boarding and was finally relinquished. Samantha's got character and charm, and she adores her swing!
Jema, f. Indian Ringneck, about 15 years old. She's been with TGF since 2005, and she sure could use a home. One of her best friends was adopted out several months ago and Jema wants a family of her own. She feather plucks at her chest sometimes and those feathers generally grow back.
Annie, f. Indian Ringneck, about 4 years old. Annie's the same type of bird as Jema, except that she's a blue mutation. She was transferred to TGF from a Denver area animal shelter in 2009. We've helped Annie to learn that people can be fun and trusted, and she's ready for a family of her own.
Dusty and Cinda f. cockatiels, about 8 years old. These two were rescued along with 9 other parrots from an eviction and their owner could no longer care for them. They are so cute, good friends, and have been in our handling and training program so they know how to step up, get from place to place and are comfortable with people. They enjoy their daily activities, especially walking around foraging for all kinds of treats. They're sweet and are ready to live with the right family. Patience, trust and understanding are the keys to a successful relationship with these Aussie cuties.
