Anna Gonce - President

...
Anna is currently the Executive Director of Best Friends Animal Society - Utah. During her more than 5 years with Best Friends, she was a senior manager in their Community Programs and Services Division directing a number of programs, including Outreach Volunteers, Emergency Response and several campaigns and initiatives.
Prior to moving to Kanab to work with Best Friends, Anna was the Executive Director of The Gabriel Foundation, a parrot rescue and adoption center based in Denver, Colorado. Additionally, for five years, she worked for the American Humane Association first as their Public Relations Director followed by managing their Animal Emergency Services program.
A graduate with a BA in Public Relations from the University of Alabama, Anna began her career in animal welfare while in college, fostering and transporting animals for local rescue groups. Anna and her husband share their home with three dogs, three birds and a cat.

It turns out this person is named Anna Gonce, and she was moving here from Kanab to fill our muchneeded opening as Program Manager! When I learned she was coming from Best Friends Animal Society, I just knew she’d be a really kind person that loved animals and I’d have another cozy lap to sleep in.

I dug a little deeper and soon read that Programs and Services at Best Friends, which means she has been helping organizations around the country achieve better results for animals by introducing new methods and programs. She was also the executive director for the Gabriel Foundation, a parrot sanctuary and adoption center in Denver, Colorado and helped build a new 40,000 square foot facility. And even before the parrot sanctuary, Anna worked for the American Humane Association doing all kinds of things like directing the Emergency Services program and the PR department. My tail started to twitch with anticipation as I began to think of all the good things Anna would be doing to make No More Homeless Pets in Utah even better and stronger at helping animals like me. You see, I still have memories of being at a local shelter, frightened and alone, hoping with all my heart that a special person would come to rescue me and take me into their warm, loving home.
As you know, it’s part of my job around here to make everyone feel welcome, and I couldn’t wait to meet Anna and give her one of my famous massages and tell her that because of people like her, I am now a busy office cat and have a second chance at life.
So, I’d like to be the first to officially welcome Anna Gonce as our new Program Manager here at No More Homeless Pets in Utah and to tell you she’s everything I imagined and more. Welcome to the team Anna!

Free Parrots: Birds bid Roaring Fork Valley adieu, as The Gabriel Foundation forced to move

www.freeparrots.net [cached]

The process began last Thursday, when the parrot's cages (sans parrots) were loaded into a 50-foot semi-trailer, explained Gabriel Foundation Executive Director Anna Gonce.

...
The foundation has owned the temporary bird carriers for a few years, having bought them in the event a wildfire forced them to evacuate all of the birds in a hurry, Gonce said.
...
It's more than a four-hour drive to Elizabeth, Gonce said, and the drivers were mentally prepared for the cacophony that could erupt at any time.
"When you live with this every day, it just becomes part of the job," Gonce said.
...
Altogether, the new aviary will be able to hold 350 parrots at one time, although Gonce said it will be a while before they expand their flock that large.
Unfortunately, there will always be more birds out there than the organization can take in, she said, noting that birds are the third most popular companion animal in the United States. Organizations like The Gabriel Foundation are needed because birds have incredibly long life spans - from 20 to 80 years, she said.
...
Gonce said the organization will miss being in the Roaring Fork Valley, but that it's better for the birds to have a new, spacious facility than continue to live in the converted, cramped buildings they lived in at the ranch in Emma. She also hopes that they can raise awareness about the organization since they'll be a short drive from downtown Denver, where they maintain an educational center.
