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.

Join us at HAWS this Sunday, December 18th for a very special movie screening of The Christmas Bunny. Showtime is at 1:00pm in the HAWS “Theater” (large activity room).
The Christmas Bunny tells the story of a lonely foster girl who finds an injured rabbit in the woods on Christmas Eve. The rabbit is nursed back to health by The Bunny Lady (everyone’s fave TV mom, Florence Henderson), who runs a rabbit rescue.
Starring as “Rumple the Bunny” is Rupert, a French Mini Lop rabbit. He was given no special training for his role and all his actions were completely spontaneous! Rupert lives at an animal educational center in Michigan.
Bring the entire family and make an afternoon of it! Come early (HAWS is open on Sundays from noon – 4:00pm) and view the many adoptable rabbits, small animals, dogs and cats currently available at the shelter. Bring along a gift donation from our Wish List and get into the holiday spirit. Concession snacks will be available, and there will be drawings for prizes – including a HAWS special edition “Year of the Rabbit” t-shirt!
By the way – help us “Stuff the Subaru” with items for the animals spending the holidays at HAWS. Log onto our Wish List for ideas of what is needed, shop, then stop by the shelter and have your picture taken while you Stuff the Subaru for HAWS! Special thanks from all the paws and claws at HAWS and our friends at Subaru City!
