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 reminds everyone of our very “fashionable” fundraiser, Romp the Runway!
All proceeds of this fundraiser benefit the life-saving work done by the Waukesha pet resource center. This work done by HAWS includes the Spay-Neuter Initiative Program clinic and it’s Project Guardian, actively and aggressively combating the cat overpopulation problem that still exists in Waukesha County. Also being helped by the event are HAWS’ Behavior Department and Mod Squad™, who work with the dogs that are turned away by others and have nowhere left to turn! The employees and volunteers rehabilitate these pets to make them wonderful adoption candidates, to great success. But all these efforts come at a price, and HAWS needs our community’s support to continue these important programs.
On Friday, September 28th, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., guests will flock like paparazzi to Romp the Runway at Silver Spring Banquet Center, N56 W21318 Silver Spring Dr. Cocktails, wine and appetizers will be served while attendees take in a runway fashion show featuring clothing from local shoppes Boutique B’Lou, Faye’s, Georgie Consignment and Next Door. Along with the runway show the event will include an auction, raffle, goody bags for each guest and a meet’n’greet with HAWS adoptable pets.
Admission is $75 per person; advance tickets can be purchased at HAWS, online at www.hawspets.org, by calling 262-542-8851, and at the event itself. Sponsorships and VIP reserved tables are also available; contact Jessica at HAWS at 262-542-8851, x112.
Each year, hundreds of area residents attend HAWS’ fall fundraiser to give all-important support the shelter while having fun, too. Don’t commit a “faux paws”: Be sure to attend HAWS’ Romp the Runway on September 28th!
