Volunteers Make Toys for the TGF Flock

Volunteers make toys for the TGF flock

We have many daily, weekly and monthly tasks that make a complete difference in the lives of the flock at The Gabriel Foundation.  We welcome the interested public, rescue, sanctuary, welfare organizations, veterinarians and members to participate in hands-on care of the aviary and the birds.

TGF willingly provides its materials to interested volunteers to distribute appropriately in their local area. The Foundation has developed a volunteer training manual for training, teaching, educational and safety purposes.

General Volunteering Information

We have great need for daily volunteers to assist at our Aviary & Adoption Center in Elizabeth, Colorado.  We have a long list of volunteer work and projects that match your experience, available time, goals and interest. Daily shifts available for volunteers are 9AM – 12PM and 1 PM-4PM.

Many volunteers work directly with our birds:

We also have plenty of non-bird-related tasks, including:

  • Making toys for the birds cages and environments.
  • Facility cleaning
  • Organization or construction duties
  • Grounds cleanup
  • Putting away donated items
  • Flight maintenance
  • Performing runs to retrieve donated food, newspapers, or large items.

Pay it forward at The Gabriel Foundation through adoption or sponsorship

BJ and Beaky make it easy for you to pay it forward at The Gabriel Foundation. This newly formed Mitred conure pair is looking for a conure friendly home with an opportunity for outdoor time. Prepare to enjoy the never-ending antics and charm of these two. With their adoption, The Gabriel Foundation will be able to assist two more birds in need. Learn more about our adoption process here: thegabrielfoundation.org/adoption/adoption-process/

Not able to adopt? BJ is still in need of support through our sponsorship program. With BJ's sponsorship, not only are you ensuring BJ's high quality of care continues here at The Gabriel Foundation, you are also providing another bird with the opportunity to come into our care.
