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.

At HAWS our door is always open…to people AND animals, because we’re here 24/7 to assist you.
You’ll find all the paws to love at HAWS!
My name is Kane, and I am a 7-year-old Lab mix looking for a home without another dog, although cats would be fine.
I was adopted and then brought back to the shelter because I am VERY HAPPY and super ENTHUSIASTIC about life…which came across as me lacking manners and self-control. But I just need time to show you what a great dog I really am! I really, really need a home that understands me and a owner that will take the time to train me and realize that I am just strong and ACTIVE.
An active home with a biker or runner would be great…because a tired dog is a good dog! I’m ready for a game of football, tag, Frisbee, whatever! Teenagers who want to play with me would be the best, but I have been known to knock over younger kids with my enthusiasm so I should probably not live with them.
Call HAWS today at 262-542-8851 or log onto www.hawspets.org for more information on Kane and all his adoptable buddies at HAWS!
