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.

February is Adopt a Rabbit month. How convenient that HAWS has suddenly filled up with a bunch of bunnies ready for adoption!
We have more than a dozen beautiful rabbits just waiting for new homes. Each one goes home with the House Rabbit Handbook, and our great small animal volunteers will make sure you have everything you need! You can also learn all about house rabbits at rabbit.org.
So, about those adoptables…
Got a craving? How about Black Licorice, Coco & Walnut, Snickers, Jasmine or Colada? Still loving this weather? Meet Snowball. There’s also Amber – a real gem, and Lea, Pia, Lila and many more.
Valentine’s Day is a great reminder of HAWS’ bunny “matchmaking” service. Did you know that single rabbits can be very lonely and depressed without friends of their own kind? HAWS volunteers will help your little companion(s) find a best buddy, love match or roommate. Call HAWS at 262-542-8851 for more info…and to make a date!
Speaking of Valentine’s Day: maybe you need a gift for a rabbit fan? HAWS is still selling our Year of the Rabbit t-shirts…because it is always the year of the rabbit for bunny fans.
By the way – HAWS’ annual Bunny Day is coming up quickly – this year it is Sunday, March 10, from noon – 4pm. Presented by HAWS and the Wisconsin House Rabbit Society, spend a day learning the Bunny Basics, ask questions of bunny experts, win prizes, meet adoptable rabbits and more! Admission is $5/adults, children under 12 free with parent. This event is for bunny caregivers only, please leave your companion rabbit comfortably at home. More info at www.hawspets.org!
