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.

This weekend we have several great events to support the HAWS cause!
On Friday it's time for HAWS Fashion for Paws - the runway show/fundraiser at Silver Spring Country Club. Reservations are still available at $75/person, so get your spot near the catwalk today to enjoy cocktails, appetizers, silent and voice auctions...and great fall fashion from local boutiques.
On Saturday and Sunday, Petco-Waukesha and HAWS Mobile Adoption Center are co-hosting the "Team Up" event at the Shoppes of Fox River, on Sunset Drive in Waukesha. Lots of adoptable animals will be on hand, and the people who know them best, to help us "score" points (adoptions), add members to the "go-home" team and help lots of pets "touchdown" at new, forever homes! Join in the fun from 9am - 2pm on Saturday and 10am - 2pm on Sunday. Enjoy music, food and drink and find a new best friend!
Last but certainly not least, on Sunday HAWS hosts our annual Guinea Pig Primer! This afternoon of "all things cavie" features Q&As with small pet experts, shopping, socializing...and new this year: Games and contests for your piggie friend! The event is free - children must be accompanied by an adult and piggie friends should be secure in carriers.
We'll see you this weekend!
By the way - we're now accepting registrations for the Winter Sessions of Kids 'N Critters Day Camp! Act now before all the spaces are filled!
