Adoptable Birds

Due to the longevity of most species of parrots, at some point many will be in need of a new home. Why not make it yours! WAES can help you find the right companion.

Foster Program

We cannot make a difference without our valuable foster volunteers. Please consider welcoming a foster bird in to your home. WAES provides vet care and screens for good adoptive homes.

About WAES

Our mission is to maintain a foster network that shelters, nurtures, and re-homes parrots while educating the public to inspire a lasting concern for the well being of exotic birds.

About WAES

WAES (Wasatch Avian Education Society) is a 501(c)(3) foster-based nonprofit rescue whose mission is to rehome companion parrots and to educate the public about their complex mental, physical and emotional needs. As Utah’s oldest parrot rescue, our ongoing rescue, foster, education and adoption programs help companion parrots who are abandoned, and as our resources allow, those whom their owners can no longer keep.

Our rescue and adoption process is sustainable and effective. Since 1994 we have rescued over 500 parrots throughout the state of Utah.
