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 have a wonderful selection of cats available for adoption at HAWS right now. Good for you if you're looking for a cat!
May we suggest: Radar and Lola.
(Radar is the brown tabby, Lola the black and white with tuxedo markings.)
Radar and Lola are a bonded pair. These sisters, both 2-years-young, are spayed and ready to go home today if the right person came to visit! They arrived at HAWS on November 9 because of a death in their family, and they are now patiently waiting for their new forever home.
Our volunteer cat socializers report that Radar and Lola are mature and not troublemakers. They are serene and sweet little girls who like attention, but also peace and quiet. A home with windows to look out of - and a few birds in the area - would be perfect. You will love spending time with them, curled up this winter with a good book...maybe one about bird-watching?!
By the way: HAWS will be open for receiving only this Saturday, 12/31 from 9am - 3pm. We will be closed Sunday to observe New Year's Day...but we'll be back open for business as usual on Monday, January 2. A Happy New Year to all pets and their people!
By the way, part 2: While you're surfing, check out our Upcoming Events for January! It's going to be a great month, with Oompa Paws on 1/28, Janboree at HAWS on 1/21, our bowling party on 1/29...c'mon along for the fun!
