Welcome to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center



We are humbled by your support and generosity. Throughout Give to the Max Day, you shared our Facebook posts with friends and family. You read and replied to our email about helping wildlife in the winter (and winter sure seems to have arrived!), you downloaded our animal Facebook banners and you generously donated.


Nearly 500 donors contributed via our website and the GiveMN page. Together they donated more than $38,000 to us. More than 22,000 people viewed and shared our Facebook updates and posts about patients just that day. By sharing our email and our Facebook posts, you introduced us to many new friends who we hope will support us in the future.


You made a huge impact on our ability to deliver top-quality medical care to wildlife. As a nonprofit we rely on private donations to fund our care. We receive no governmental funding for our operations.


On behalf of our patients, thank you for all you do. Stay warm!

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 400 volunteers care for, rehabilitate and release the wildlife that they've worked with. The WRC treats more than 8,500 wild animals every year, representing more than 160 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.
