Welcome to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

Construction Comes to Dale Street


We have good news: The exit ramp from northbound 35E to westbound Hwy. 36 has re-opened!


However, this week, after many delays, the construction moved even closer to WRC: Dale Street is torn up and says "No Thru Traffic." Ignore the sign - you can come to us, just please be careful of the construction personnel working on the road. If stopped, just let them know you're bringing a patient to the wildlife hospital.



Following up on an animal you brought to us? Drop us a note ( with the person's name who admitted it, the approximate date and the species. We'll get back to you within a few days!

The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota (WRC) in Roseville, Minn., is a nonprofit, donor-supported organization. The WRC was established in response to the increased need for medical care of injured, ill and orphaned wildlife. With a medical staff of 8, the Center is one of the largest and busiest wildlife medical centers in the nation. More than 600 volunteers care for, rehabilitate and release the wildlife that they've worked with. The WRC treats more than 9,000 wild animals every year, representing more than 185 different species.


We cannot give tours since we do not keep any animals for educational use. We do have an open house every winter, usually in February. Watch our Facebook page or register for our emails to keep up to date with WRC.
