Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota (WRC) provides quality medical care and rehabilitation for all injured, sick, and orphaned wild animals, and shares its knowledge with the people who care about them.

WRC was founded at the University of Minnesota in 1979 as a student club of the Veterinary College. From those humble beginnings of just a few dozen animals a year, the WRC has grown into one of the nation's busiest wildlife hospitals, admitting more than 14,000 patients annually.

A year-round staff of just 14 people, nine of which are medical professionals, keeps WRC's budget focused on providing care to its patients. During the summer, WRC adds five to six seasonal staff to run its three nurseries (Avian, Mammal, and Waterfowl.)
