​Our Mission: Companion Parrot
Advocacy & Support.

SWEAR SouthWest Exotic Avian Rescue
Southwest Exotic Avian Rescue is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization serving the Las Vegas, Nevada and surrounding communities.  We are completely supported by generous donations and the hard work of amazing volunteers!  Our focus is to provide safe, caring foster and permanent adoption placement to parrots in need of rehoming.  We are all about the birds and their welfare!  To that end, we provide each bird that comes into SWEAR with:

Medical evaluation and health screenings, nutritional and general evaluation to ensure their needs are met to the best of our human abilities. We make sure they are in healthy surroundings (physically, emotionally, and mentally).  Potential fosters and adopters are screened to make sure the birds are matched with homes according to their personalities and needs.

During their time with us, we do our best to concentrate on any problem behaviors and make sure the birds are part of a flock (family) living in a home.  Each and every bird that comes to us is treated with compassion and care.  We make sure they have a safe place to live and are provided with toys and things to keep their minds busy.  All our foster volunteers work hard to maintain and improve the bird’s quality of life.  
​ 
Ultimately we must always remember, these birds are not domesticated, they are still wild animals.  They didn’t ask to live in our human world; but here they are and it’s our responsibility to make it as good as we can for them.   Individual guidance and education is provided to fosters and permanent adopters.  You can even contact us if you have a problem with your own bird(s), we may be able to help!

Who we are

We are simply people who care deeply for parrots.   Many parrot owners,  for a wide variety of reasons, may at some point find they need to rehome their parrot.  Lives and circumstances change quickly.  Many changes can have a drastic effect on someone's ability to care for their bird(s) and other pets.  That's when we can help.  

If you're not sure about rehoming your parrot, we may be able to help.  We have great volunteers who are experienced, knowledgable and want to help you and your parrot learn to get along better so he/she can stay in your home.  We WANT you to keep your feathered friend with you if at all possible!


For the birds that are placed with us, we make sure they all have a vet exam and treatment for any illnesses.  They are placed in a 30 day quarantine period for the safety of all involved then matched with a caring foster home.  We do our best to find the most compatible adoptive home.  We don't adopt on a 'first come-first serve' basis.  We adopt to the best home for each individual bird.

How Can You Help?

Monetary donations help to provide important medical services and necessary care to the birds in SWEAR.  One of our primary needs is always for foster volunteers and people interested in adopting.  Caring foster homes are the heart of this rescue!
