Established in 1965, HAWS assists over 6,000 animals and welcomes more than 31,000 human visitors annually. As an "open admissions" shelter we lead the community in animal welfare and assure sanctuary for all animals in need, regardless of age, health or temperament. HAWS is a non-profit, entirely donor-fund organization with an active humane education program, and both wildlife and companion animal rescue services for Waukesha County.

Wow, that was a great weekend, wasn't it? From the Pet Expo to the Super Bowl to the great temperatures, it was hard to top. But at HAWS, we'll give it a shot!

Pick up sweet treats for your valentine – person or pet – and join the Friends in support of HAWS. Get all the “goods” on the Friends webpage.
HAWS’ Mobile Adoption Center is bringing “happy tails” into the community with 2 events this weekend. We start with HAWS Night at the Waukesha Chancery on Friday, 2/11 - we'll be there during dinner to collect donations and sell raffle tickets, but the REAL fun begins at 10pm, with Karaoke, "Bark"-cardi mixers and "Meow"-stery shots. Then, after we take Saturday to recover, we'll be at Petlicious Dog Bakery & Pet Spa for the Dog Wash for HAWS on Sunday, 2/13. Details are on the Mobile Adoptions webpage.
Don't forget, we're in the thick of Fill the Forester February - a “drive” challenge made to HAWS by Subaru City of Milwaukee. Supply donations made to HAWS during the month will be placed in the SUV parked outside the shelter at 701 Northview Road, Waukesha. Donors are encouraged to have their “foto” taken to show their support of “Fill the Forester February” and help HAWS track the donation-drive progress. HAWS hopes to Fill the Forester four or five times over! Here's a current HAWS supply Wish List, or call 262-542-8851.
By the way - Spay Day 2011 is coming up quickly - February 22.
