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.

HAWS and our Mobile Adoption Center had an AWESOME time this past Saturday at the Shoppes at Fox River on Sunset Ave. in Waukesha!
Thanks so much to the businesses there who made it a special day for the paws and claws at HAWS.
Noodles & Company's 25% dine-out for HAWS day made sure we had a great lunch and/or dinner while helping out the animals/programs of our shelter. I know MY dogs were jealous when they saw what I was eating...
Maurices "Rescues & Runways" Fashion Show got us ready to shop for fall - and our HAWS alumni pet models really enjoyed strutting their stuff, too. Ladies, you are just beautiful (and the cookies and cupcakes were pretty great, too)!
Petco-Waukesha not only provided the pet Halloween costumes for the shoe, but Nick kept us entertained and upbeat all day with his DJ stylings. Tom, thanks for your patience during the costume fitting sessions...so glad your HAWS alumni pups were there with us.
But enough talking - check out our snapshots from the day to see for yourself!
By the way - We're always looking to put the fun in fundraising! The Friends of HAWS, our Mobile Adoption Center and Fall Fundraiser committee would love for you to be a part of the team. More into dog walking, cat cuddling or helping out at the shelter? Become a HAWS volunteer! We'll see you soon!
