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.

With temps flirting with the 90s and the humidity in "very damp" range, it is hard to focus on fall. But that's exactly what we're doing at HAWS:
Our annual fall fundraiser is October 16th. This year, we're having our very own HOMECOMING! Rah!
Tickets will go on sale September 1st, but we need you to get involved already, right now:
Our Homecoming Committee is looking for sponsors for this fun event. Sponsorships include special VIP tickets to the event with early entry and reserved seating, advertising for your company or group, and the great feeling you get when you've helped HAWS help the animals and their people in our community! Get in touch with us by August 4th and you'll be part of our really neat (really, really neat), personalized event invitations that are sent out to 12,500+ friends of the HAWS cause.
It's very easy to get involved: Head on over to our HAWS Homecoming webpage and download the sponsorship info, then send your sponsorship commitment form back to us via fax, snail mail, carrier pigeon (really, we do get plenty of those stopping by our shelter, so why not?!)...or email Jen or Nichole at email@example.com and we'll get you all set. Sponsorships range from $250 - $5000. You can call us for more info, too - 262-542-8851, x107.
HAWS Homecoming will feature the usual great food, auction items, raffle and casino games, but this year we have a few special twists! We'll kick off the evening with our very own Homecoming Parade (you can sponsor a float in that, too, by the way, for $100) and a Homecoming Court of Adoptable Pets from our shelter. You might even be able to take home the King or Queen...
So Join our Team! Show Your Spirit! Become a Sponsor! Rah!
By the way - HAWS fall fundraiser is one of the 2 main events our shelter does annually in support of our animals, services and programs. Your support means the world to us and the animals and people we serve each day. Thank you!
