The Best Grooming Available!

WayneThe Gabriel Foundation offers grooming services at our Aviary & Adoption Center.  Your bird is always treated as a beloved family member with considerate handling, a clean and fresh towel, species-appropriate grooming, and weight monitoring.

Regarding requests to trim or shape your bird’s beak:

  • Beak trims: There is a difference between a prophylactic/medical necessary beak revision and minimal beak shaping or adjustment. If TGF staff is not comfortable grooming your bird’s beak, we will recommend you take your bird to an avian vet for care. Any concerns or unusual beak growth that is observed by TGF staff will be documented in writing and a photograph.
  • The Gabriel Foundation grooming staff is able to: Moderate/limited reshaping of overgrown beaks, clean up/smooth overgrown keratin on beak, smooth a small chip or crack but this is 100% dependent on each bird and its beak. The Gabriel Foundation will NOT groom any bird’s beak if requested when the bird appears ill, if there is traumatic injury, or the beak appears to be abnormal; The Gabriel Foundation will NOT groom a bird’s peak to prevent biting, to prevent feather picking, self-mutilation or other destructive behaviors, or if in our experience that for medical, stress of other reasons that the bird must be evaluated by a veterinarian with a special interest in avian medicine.

Grooming is available by appointment only.

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.
