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.

We'll take a break for a moment from planning for this weekend's HAWS Homecoming event (you've heard about HAWS Homecoming, right?) to tell you about another neat upcoming HAWS event.
Holiday Pet Photos are coming!
No, we haven't even celebrated Halloween yet, but when you use pictures of your pet(s) for your Holiday Greeting cards and whatnot, you need them early. So, think snow for a few minutes, get Fido and Fluffy all gussied up in their Winter finery, and c'mon over for a professional portrait.
Here's all the "poop" you need to know:
- Pictures will be taken by members of the Unlimited Vision photography club, with all proceeds from the photos supporting the animals, programs and services at HAWS. This is a Friends of HAWS-sponsored event!
- Appointments are available on both Saturday, October 23 and Sunday, October 24, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:15 p.m.
- The $30 fee includes the photography sitting, one (1) 8”x10” print and two (2) 5”x7” prints. Pet owners will receive a CD of their photos for an additional donation of $5.
- To reserve their session, pet owners should contact HAWS at 262-542-8851. Sittings will be in 15 minute increments.
By the way - did you really think we'd let this blog end without another plug for Homecoming? It is coming up this Saturday, October 16th - and you can still purchase tickets by calling us at 262-542-8851, x112. Don't forget, too, that you can buy raffle tickets at HAWS for the 42" flat screen TV we'll be giving away at the event. Need not be present to win...but we'd love for you to join us! (Hint, hint!)
