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.

At HAWS, we won't give up on a pet!! Meet MacKenzie the cat:
This beautiful shorthaired girl is MacKenzie, a 6-year-old brown tabby with orange coloring. She's a love - our volunteers call her the "purrfect" pal - who is affectionate, playful and "kneads" whomever she's with! Maybe you need her in your life?
MacKenzie has patiently been waiting for a new home. In fact, she's been waiting for her new home since July '11!!! She's spent some time in our adoption program at the Petco store in Waukesha, but now she's back at HAWS, lounging in our foyer window cat condos.
We love having her at HAWS, but we'd love even more for her to land in a forever home with a comfy bed and sunny window.
Come visit with MacKenzie and all her adoptable friends at HAWS - today and every day!
HAWS welcomes you daily for viewing and adoption. We're open Monday - Friday from 1:00 - 6:00 p.m., Saturday from 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and Sunday from Noon - 4:00 p.m.
By the way: this Sunday, 3/18, is our Annual Bunny Day at HAWS, co-hosted by the Wisconsin House Rabbit Society. And next Sunday, 3/25, is a busy HAWS day with our Extreme Makeover: HAWS Edition from noon - 4pm at the shelter and our Mobile Adoption Center's annual visit to the Milwaukee Admirals Dog Day game at 3pm! Join us - and have lots of fun while supporting the HAWS Cause!
