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.

Have you ever moved into a new home and not had all the furnishings for it yet? Maybe you went from a small apartment to a full-size house, or upgraded to a bigger place - but the living room stayed empty while you decided on the new couch and chairs and tables that would best fill it...
As our shelter expansion project nears completion, we are taking stock of what we need to fill some of our new rooms! We have plenty of residents coming and going, now we need the little, final touches to make our shelter the best it can be.
Below is our "sponsorships" WISH LIST - we buy the item, but put YOUR name on it if you donate towards the purchase price. For example, is there a cat lover in your house? Donate in their name towards our cat townhouses and we'll put their name on a plaque by that item.
Most of the things on our list are directly for the animals, and some are to help us help the people that come to our shelter facility. Our goal is to have a place that is warm and welcoming for everyone that visits!
