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.

Bring your dog, your kids - the whole family - and join us for this fun event held May 3rd at Sussex Village Park. There is something for everyone, with walking trails, great lunch items, vendors and, best of all, camaraderie with fellow pet lovers and their beautiful dogs. So if dogs make you smile, be sure to join us at this fantastic fundraiser for the animals at HAWS.
This year the Friend’s group is raising money for a new HAWS’ Animal Rescue vehicle. Money raised from this year’s Walk will go towards both the purchase of this vehicle and the animals at HAWS. This vehicle will be on duty 24/7/365 in our community to assist animals in need. We transport sick or injured wildlife, and stray and abandoned or injured domestic animals, responding every day as needed to our Waukesha County communities. Each year we respond to over 1500 calls for help with animals in our surrounding communities.
There are so many ways you can donate! Make your own personal online fundraising page by going to the Walk page of our website, hawspets.org. Or, collect pledges, walk the trail and then turn the funds in at the Walk itself. Or simply join us, have lunch with us and make a donation.
There are many ways you can give and many ways you can enjoy the day! We’ll see you May 3rd!
By the way - this Sunday is the day to see the transformation from fuzzy to fabulous! Extreme Makeover: HAWS Edition begins at noon!
