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.

'Tis the season to don those awful holiday sweaters - why not let our pets get in on the fun?! Get Fido or Fluffy all dolled up, snap a photo and share it on HAWS Ugly (Holiday) Pet Sweater Cyber Contest event page on Facebook to win a HAWS gift basket and other great prizes!
Join our buddy Yoda and get in the HOLIDAY SPIRIT!
HAWS is holding an Ugly Sweater Contest for pets - now thru mid-December.
Photos will be accepted from noon on 11/20 thru noon on 12/15, and will be posted on the event page and in HAWS' shelter lobby at 701 Northview Road, Waukesha.
Photos can be submitted by posting directly to the event page (just "Join" the event and go!), via email to HAWS' main Facebook page (Humane Animal Welfare Society - HAWS of Waukesha) or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Complete contest Rules & Guidelines can be found on the event page or by logging on to hawspets.org.
Winners will be determined by "Likes" on Facebook, by open voting in HAWS lobby and by a panel of HAWS staff judges.
You can also 'Help the HAWS Cause' through this event: Make a donation in one of the pictured pet's honor, and that pet receives 1 additional vote for every dollar donated!
Happy Holidays to one and all from HAWS!
