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 is as much about little pets as we are about cats and dogs. Check out these 2 small animals available for adoption today!
Meet Alice. To the left is Calamity. They are both sweet and charming little gals.
Because hamsters are nocturnal, they don't like to be disturbed during the day (we all need our beauty sleep, you know!). When evening comes Alice and Calamity will gladly come out and hang out with you, and burn off some energy on a hamster wheel. The girls will also need a large home with plenty of space to scamper about and lots of fun stuff to explore.
If you can give Alice, Calamity or any of the other great pets at HAWS a loving forever home, please come in (HAWS is open 7 days a week!) and ask to see us. The hamsters will be sleeping, but they'll be glad to wake up for a bit to meet you...
