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.

You Never Know When You'll Save a Life...How's Today?
You'll get a chance to save a life - a human life this time - at HAWS, on Monday, April 4th, from 2:30-7:30 pm when we host our 4/4 Honoring 4 Paws Blood Drive for the Blood Center of Wisconsin.
Just to clarify: this is a drive for human blood, not for pet blood. We feel it is important, because supporting the other life-saving organizations in our area just makes for a stronger community as a whole.
And who knows...the life you save might be that of another pet owner. And that might mean another pet that doesn't end up homeless, looking for a second chance at HAWS or another shelter.
Wow. Now THAT'S a way to make a difference!
