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.

HAWS has entered a partnership with Stray Pride to present regular segments on TMJ4's The Morning Blend. Every other Thursday, from July 17 thru December 18th, a different aspect of HAWS will be featured - including adoptable pets, special events and ways to get involved in the "HAWS cause."
Today we welcomed Yoda and Lisa and Paul and Kim to HAWS to shoot "Yoda Cam" video and b-roll footage for an upcoming segment on HAWS' Mobile Adoption Center.
Yoda was a pro, visiting HAWS' dogs, cats and small animals available for adoption. It was EXHAUSTING work - thanks, Yoda! And thanks, Lisa, for getting him "camera-ready!"
We let Paul take over with the big camera to film Johanna, Lucky, Karma and Cheyenne outside. Mya and Maddie and the kids at this week's Kids 'N Critters Day Camp also helped us inside with more footage! All of the video will be edited and put together for segments airing on July 31st and later in the future.
Our hope is that with this partnership we'll get even more animals adopted into their new forever homes...and with Lisa's help we'll get even more people talking about HAWS and supporting our efforts for the animals in Waukesha County and beyond.
Tune in next Thursday...and join us at HAWS!
By the way - this weekend it's Choose Your Cruise day at HAWS (7/26 from noon-2pm)...and we're gearing up for Ride for Rover and the Pet Fair in Menomonee Falls on 8/16! Just announced: Move Your Mutt for HAWS on October 19th...don't miss out!
