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.

Need a date for New Year’s Eve? Or maybe a reason to stay home and snuggle on the couch? At HAWS, we’ve got an idea…
Meet Bella, a sweet 2-year-old Lab!
Bella came to HAWS just a short while ago, when her previous home couldn’t take her along when they moved. She is enjoying her time with our staff, as you can see, but her resolution is to be in a great new home for 2013.
This little girl (she’s not the big, bulky lab you might be used to) is a bit shy at first, but loves attention and treats. She doesn’t always like other dogs so a meet’n’greet with another canine sibling is a must, and Bella definitely is NOT a cat fan. Her new family will need to be older as she startles easily around younger kids.
Bella and a bunch of her adoptable pals, like Jack Frost, Jingle, Tiny Tim and Packer are available for viewing at HAWS today! Stop by and see if one of these pups is in your future – or if one of our many cats, rabbits or other small animals will make your New Year bright.
HAWS Holiday Hours:
HAWS is open for normal viewing, adoption and receiving from Wednesday, December 26 through Sunday, December 30. On New Year’s Eve we are open for receiving-only, from 9am – 3pm, and HAWS is closed on New Year’s Day. But, if you need help when we’re closed, there is always someone on 24-hour call to assist you!
By the way – you still have a few days to take advantage of Nachos Navidad for HAWS at Taco John’s! Satisfy your nacho craving and help HAWS, too, with 25 cents from each order donated to our shelter.
Feliz Navidad and Feliz Ano Nuevo!
