Welcome to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

Our Peak Season Has Arrived!


Have you found a baby bird or young squirrel? Or maybe a duckling that's become separated from its family?


We have some of the answers in our FAQs, but you can always call us at 651-486-9453 with questions.


If you suspect an animal is orphaned, we ask that you please call us first. It's always better for the animal to grow up in the wild.


We're really busy right now (just watch our Critter Ticker down below to see the list of incoming patients) but if you leave a voicemail we will call you back.


In the meantime, check out our FAQs and watch this important video about what to do if you find a fawn.


We are open all weekend, including Memorial Day. The animals just don't seem to care about our human holidays...




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!



Learn more about how we provide medical care in our Case Studies.


SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, Aug. 8th! Order your tickets and learn more about our gala here.

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.
