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/Adopt-A-Rabbit month continues, and we present the latest addition to HAWS’ Adoptable Bunny Family.
Beautiful Bubby is a Holland Lop rabbit. She is an adult female, has been spayed, and has a stunning jet-black coat. Bubby is sweet, but still a little bit shy and getting used to handling. She enjoys leafy green salads – a girl’s gotta keep her figure, you know! Bubby is waiting for her new forever human to love.
Did you know that a group of rabbits is called a herd? Rabbits are very social animals that like other bunny companions to live with in a “warren” or hutch.
If a house rabbit is properly cared for and spayed or neutered early in life, it can live to age 8-12 years! Rabbits require an owner that is able to make that lengthy commitment to them.
By the way – HAWS has a number of neat events coming up – something for everyone! We’ll be joining in the fun at the Milwaukee Admirals Dog Day game on March 3rd (you can purchase tickets to benefit HAWS through the link on our website). Our annual Bunny Day is coming on March 10th. AND, our 3rd annual Extreme Makeover: HAWS Edition is March 17th!
And don't forget World Spay Day is coming up this Tuesday...
