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.

Why IS that Subaru Forester parked on the front walk at the HAWS shelter?
Through our partnership with Subaru City, Milwaukee, we've started a supply "drive" challenge!
During the month of February we are asking for supply donations from our Wish List. When those donations come in, they will be put in the Subaru Forester, with the idea that we will "Fill the Forester" - as many times as possible! (In the interest of alliteration, we're hoping to fill the Forester at least four or five times for February...)
We'll be tracking our progress on our website, and any donor who wishes can have an action "foto" taken showing that they helped HAWS. (Sounds like a great profile picture for Facebook...!)
So join us in our February fun - invite family, friends, church/school/scout groups and more to collect supplies for the shelter and help HAWS Fill the Forester this February!
By the way - Spay Day 2011 is 3 weeks from today. EVERYONE can get involved - by our Sponsor-A-Spay program, through the HSUS Online Pet Photo Contest, you can even purchase a Spay Day t-shirt! Need help with your pet's spay or neuter? Contact our SNIP clinic for information on programs available. Help stop pet overpopulation - and help HAWS get the word out about the importance of spaying and neutering our companion pets!
By the way, part 2 - February is a really fun month at HAWS, from our Night at the Waukesha Chancery on 2/11 to our Have a Heart Bake Sale (2/11-12) to the Petlicious Dog Wash for HAWS on 2/13. Join us!
