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.

The deadline looms!
HAWS annual fall fundraiser - this year titled the Men at Work party - is coming up on the 17th. Hard to believe it is already October.
Please join us: Tickets are on sale ONLY through this Saturday, October 10th - both at the shelter, via phone (262-542-8851) or through our website and the Men at Work event page. All proceeds for this event benefit the animals in our care, and the programs and services that assist our community. Truly a good cause!
There are 2 tickets levels this year. For $55 you get the full-party experience: arrive at 6:30pm for fabulous buffets (including the ever-popular sushi bar), to bid on silent and live auction items (LOTS of neat packages, gifts, memorabilia, jewelry, artwork - great things for both people and pets), meet'n'greet some of our adoptable pets, shoot some craps or try the roulette wheel...and then get down with The Boogie Men!
For the special price of $20, c'mon in at 9pm - dance with The Boogie Men and win big prizes in our casino. Get to know a little bit of HAWS for a smaller donation!
Can't come? You're still eligible for our "Build" Raffle - tickets are $10 each or 3 for $25. Purchase those tickets at our shelter up until the event.
By the way - this fundraiser is one of the ways we are able to keep HAWS going strong. Help support the HAWS cause, a cause even more important these days when more pets and their people look to us for help! Thanks for your support!
