Support Injured Wildlife

Welcome to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

Thank You for a Wonderful Evening!


We had an amazing time on Saturday and hope those of you who attended our gala did, too. You helped us raise tens of thousands of dollars for the medical care of injured and orphaned wildlife. We're so fortunate to live in a state where people truly care about the environment and wildlife.


We cannot do our work without your support and you've really made a huge contribution to how we're able to deliver care. Thousands of dollars were raised specifically for medical treatment of Trumpeter Swans in our Fund A Need, and thousands more came in through the live and silent auctions. If you weren't able to attend, and still want to help support our work with the protected Trumpeter Swan, you can do so by sponsoring the care of a waterfowl patient here.


We have lots of fun photos from the evening thanks to photographer Matthew Witchell. You can check them all out here on his Flicker page. If you'd like to order prints, contact him directly.


Thank you again for your support!

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.
