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 has again been chosen to benefit from the December “Nachos Navidad” promotion and through sales of Christmas ornaments at the Waukesha Taco John’s restaurant at 317 N. Grand Ave!
Noted Dusty Stiefel, Unit General Manager for Taco John’s, “This will be our third straight year raising donations for HAWS, and we want to make sure we beat our amount from last year of $1,992.00.”
Nachos Navidad billboards will be posted November 12th, marking the day Taco John’s will begin selling their $1 holiday ornaments for HAWS. Then, starting December 1st and continuing throughout the month, 25 cents from every Nachos Navidad sold at the Waukesha eatery will be donated to HAWS. For those with spare change in their pockets, Taco John’s will also have collection jars for HAWS.
Stiefel continued, “The entire crew at Taco John’s works very hard to make all the customers aware that we are raising money for HAWS, and our customers are a huge part of raising this money year after year. We wouldn’t be so successful without them!”
“We are incredibly grateful to Taco John’s and their continued support of HAWS through these fundraisers,” said Lynn Olenik, HAWS’ Executive Director. “Support like this from our community means so much to us – and we really enjoy working with Dusty and her staff. They are great friends to HAWS!”
