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.

Maybe you've been driving westbound on Capitol Drive in Pewaukee lately, just east of the Hwy. 74 interchange, and it has caught your eye...
Or you happened to exit 894 to head west on Greenfield Ave. and there he was...
Introducing Reggie, a recent HAWS alumni pet and the star of our new billboard campaign!
One of our goals is to increase community awareness of our mission - and just our existence in general. We're hoping that Reggie's cute, smiling mug on our billboards will be just the ticket to get noticed and get our message out there.
The call to action on our billboards is simple: Adopt - Learn - Give: Support the HAWS Cause!
Community support is what has kept us strong all these years, through the good and not-so-good, through tough economic times and the changing nature of animal welfare. Support is given in so many ways...not just financial (altho that one is a HUGE help!). We receive daily support from our volunteers, a mental boost from those passionate about education and learning, and satisfaction from all those rescue "tails" shared by our adopters.
So keep an eye out for Reggie, point him out to your friends...and please do as he says!
Thank you - from all the paws and claws at HAWS.
By the way - follow the links above to fulfill Reggie's request: Adopt, Learn and Give! And say hi next time you see our Mobile Adoption Center out and about...or c'mon out to one of our events or seminars!
