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.

Today’s blog is brought to you by the letter B – as in Best Buddies. And HAWS has a bounty of adoptables whose names begin with B – namely Benson, Bonnibelle, Burt, Big Mike, Bruno, Binky, Birdie, Bogey…and all the bunnies!
Benson is a 6-years-young Toy Poodle. This little man would like a more businesslike home with (slightly) older kids, or all adults.
Seven-year-old Bonnibelle is a Persian cat. She loves attention and brushing – which helps because she will need regular grooming for her lovely coat.
Burt is a boffo domestic shorthair, age 5. He loves to play as much as he loves quiet cuddle time!
Big Mike the turtle is of the Red-Eared Slider breed. He’ll probably do best as an only child…or an eternal bachelor, all by himself…
Bruno is a green-yellow Parakeet, while Binky and Birdie are blue-white Parakeets. They are three of the bunches of birds currently residing in the HAWS aviary.
Bogey is a black Mouse. He has lots of mouse buddies also to choose from, if you’re looking for a bevy of them to bring home.
Bunnies are currently great in numbers at HAWS. And while none of them have B-names, they are still beautiful little companions - and have their own day at HAWS on May 1st!
