Welcome to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

Shop for our Patients


We're often asked about a wish list or donations list for our patients. Since our patients are either under medical or rehabilitative care, they have fairly specific needs. And, those needs are continually changing with our patients.


The best way for us to share our needs with you is via our Amazon Wish List. We can keep the list easily updated and you can shop from the comfort of your home knowing the patients are getting exactly what is needed.


If you see something that you'd prefer to purchase locally and drop off at the Center, that is fine with us. Please be sure that it is an EXACT match to the item. Not something similar or another brand - an exact match.


Thank you again for shopping for our patients!




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.
