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.

This Saturday, September 18th, HAWS’ Mobile Adoption Center “sets up shop” for the afternoon at the center’s common Pavilion for a meet’n’greet of pets available for adoption from HAWS. Petco of Waukesha, a great new friend of HAWS located at 1240 W. Sunset, will be setting the mood with a DJ, special promotions and fun for all – pets and people.
Also on Saturday, Noodles & Co. sponsors a benefit dining event from 12:00 - 8:00 p.m. Have lunch or dinner at their restaurant at 1210 W. Sunset in Waukesha, mention the HAWS fundraiser, and 25% of sales will be donated to HAWS!
The special day wraps with the “Rescues & Runways” Fashion Show, presented by Maurices of the Shoppes at Fox River. This benefit for HAWS, beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Garden Pavilion area, will feature fall styles, a silent auction…and some very special HAWS alumni strutting their stuff with the Maurice’s models – in pet Halloween costumes provided by Petco.
