What is needed for boarding at The Gabriel Foundation?

A reservation is required. All medical testing verification must be provided prior to boarding*. We can provide a cage and food (unless on a special diet). We ask you to bring some favorite toys and special treats your bird would like!


Do I have a choice between boarding at The Birdbrain and The Aviary?

Yes! If you are boarding for 30 days or less, you have the option of boarding at The Birdbrain if you wish. We do not have the same type of outdoor accommodations up there but we try and find ways for the birds to safely get out into the fresh air for a bit. If you are boarding for more than 30 days, your bird will be at the Aviary in Elizabeth.


I want to board at the Aviary but it is too far for me to drive! Do you have transportation available for my bird?

Yes! You can drop your bird off at The Birdbrain and we will transport Birdie and “luggage” down to the Aviary and back up to The Birdbrain for a nominal roundtrip fee of only $25!


So, how much DOES it cost for all this great care?

Adoptions are a family affair! When Pam lost one of her doves, she astutely realized that the surviving dove was lonely. So, when Pam came to adopt a dove, we asked her to bring her surviving dove so that she could choose her own new friend. Well, she chose *two* new friends: female doves Aiden and Everest. Pam also also brought along her four granddaughters, who, when they left, were busy cooking up some fancy new names for their two new doves. ... See MoreSee Less

This makes me so happy- the doves and pigeons get their day sometimes!

Now that's a real success story!

thanks for giving these birds a good home and a BIG HUG to all of you that loved and cared for them!!!

that is very sweet!

Super!

Cute

This makes me very happy. I saw those doves while out at the aviary two weeks ago and I wanted to bring them all home. They aren't as fancy as the hookbills and they don't talk, but they bring a peaceful message.....

The birdie not only sounds better, she looks better too 😉

Parrot, of course, and that's not because I don't like Rihanna 🙂

Parrot........lost interest in her after she let Chris Brown knock her around and she kept going back for more.

I can't hear it very well but I would naturally vote parrot because I love them.
