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, adoptable cats from HAWS will again be competing in a regional cat show. Come watch – and maybe take home a star!
The TICA Great Lakes Regional Pedigreed and Household Pet Cat Show runs this entire weekend, August 9-11, at the Waukesha County Expo Center’s Forum Building.
HAWS Mobile Adoption Center representatives will be on hand with a number of cats and kittens, both competing and looking for adoptive homes. We’ll have adoption applications available – in case one of them is your purrfect match! Or, since HAWS is just down the street, stop by our shelter to see the many, many other wonderful cats and kittens looking for new homes!
Midnight, a black 10-month-old shorthair male, and Snowflake, a 1-year-old shorthair female, are just 2 of the great felines waiting at HAWS …and since they have a little free time they thought going to the cat show could be fun. Both cats have been favorites of our staff and are social, loving kids! We think they’re shoo-ins for success at the show.
By the way – you remembered Ride for Rover 4 and the HAWS 6th annual Pet Fair in Menomonee Falls are coming up next Saturday, right? Motorcycles, cars, pets and people are all welcome to join in the fun. Log onto hawspets.org for all the details!
