We adopt to people within a day's drive from Salt Lake City, UT.
The Wasatch Avian Education Society is a nonprofit corporation offering education and rehoming services for pet parrots. We hold monthly meetings with speakers on topics of avian interest, and we offer bird care classes. We publish a monthly newsletter and host an informative chat group. Parrots are fostered in the homes of our members. We are an all volunteer organization.

Our Adoption Process:
We adopt to members only. Join WAES and fill out an adoption application. Our Rescue Committee will contact you for a home study. After you pass your home study, you may visit birds in foster care. When you find the right bird for you, you may apply to adopt that bird. The Rescue Committee decides the placement of birds. To view our adoptable birds and complete forms online, please go to our website: www.wasatchavian.com
birds can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a bird for sale or finding a bird breeder, adopting a bird from
an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a bird to your family.
Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for
a bird. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or
attention your bird needs, and many other important things about how to
house and care for a bird. There are different types of birds
including African Grey, Amazon, Brotogeris, Budgie, Button Quail, Caique, Canary, Chicken, Cockatiel, Cockatoo, Conure, Dove, Duck, Eclectus, Emu, Finch, Goose, Guinea Fowl, Kakariki, Lorikeet, Lovebird, Macaw, Mynah, Ostrich, Parakeet - Other, Parakeet - Quaker, Parrot - Other, Parrotlet, Peacock, Pheasant, Pigeon, Pionus, Poicephalus (including Senegal and Meyer's), Quail, Rhea, Ringneck, Rosella, Softbill - Other, Swan, Toucan, and Turkey.
Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Please consider a rescue pet before you buy a pet from a breeder or pet store. Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
