Welcome to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

It's Our Annual Open House!



Sunday, Feb. 7 from Noon-4pm we'll open our doors and welcome hundreds of kids and adults into the building. This is your chance to meet our staff and learn more about wildlife medicine.


Take a "patient" through the admit process (it's a stuffed animal, kids can even bring their own if they'd like!), visit with our vets, peer through microscopes, check out radiographs (xrays) and watch presentations on how we care for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.

In case you're wondering, there will be no animals on display (in accordance with state regulations).

Donations are greatly appreciated during the open house and we'll have hats, sweatshirts, t-shirts, etc., available for purchase.


While you're here, be sure to head over to Harriet Alexander Nature Center, located just behind us up the paved path. They're celebrating the Chinese New Year (Year of the Monkey) and have all sorts of fun things to do and neat exhibits!


Parking is available in the two large public lots on the west side of Dale, across from WRC and just north of WRC.


Questions? Just call us: 651-486-9453. See you on the 7th!




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.
