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.

HAWS is excited to announce that we have again been chosen as the beneficiary of Casa del Rio’s annual Margaritafest, the weekend fundraising party at the popular Waukesha restaurant!
The event runs this Friday, May 18 and Saturday, May 19 at 408 E. Main Street, Waukesha. Friday’s festivities run from 4 - 11pm and feature FREE admission with a donated item from HAWS' Wish List. The cookout will include a trivia contest at 6:30pm, raffle prizes, giveaways and music by Los Guys from 7 - 11pm. The Bacardi Girls will keep things hopping at the outside bar area.
On Saturday, the action happens between 2 - 11pm, with a Zumba Dance Workout kicking things off from 2-4pm. The evening will again include a cookout, outside bar, more trivia (6:30pm) and raffle prizes, music by Sound Therapy from 7-11pm and a visit from the Jose Cuervo Girls.
Proceeds from the weekend and sales from raffle tickets will be donated to HAWS. HAWS’ Mobile Adoption Center will have pictures of adoptable pets at HAWS on display, and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about the shelter and it’s programs for the community.
