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.

At HAWS we are absloutely willing go on record saying that men are not pigs. Except this one...
Meet Snuggle the Guinea Pig. He's a fun little guy who loves the lovin' and cuddle time.
Hmmm, sounds like the perfect Valentine, no?
Snuggle is one of a handful of guinea pigs (and other small pets) currently available for adoption at HAWS. And, when you adopt Snuggle or one of his piggy buddies, you receive a free copy of the Cavy Health Record Book, so you can keep your new little friend healthy and happy for a lifetime. What a deal!
