Carolina Waterfowl Rescue is an all volunteer organization dedicated to helping injured and abandoned water birds in the greater Charlotte NC area. We take in over 2000 birds a year from NC and SC and other states as far away as Michigan, Virginia, Georgia, and Florida. While we are a federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation center, we do take in domestic birds in need.

Our Adoption Process:

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.
