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 joins HSUS, the Humane Society of the United States, in wishing you a happy Spay Day 2011 today!
YOU can participate: make a “Sponsor-A-Spay” donation to HAWS, purchase a limited edition Spay Day ’11 t-shirts at the shelter, or enter the online pet photo contest sponsored by HSUS - choose HAWS as your benefactor and we receive $1 for every vote cast for your pet!
From February 14th- 25th HAWS' Spay-Neuter Initiative Program (SNIP) clinic is doing free spays or neuters for the pets of qualifying Waukesha County residents. This annual program compliments the SNIP clinic's usual low-income programs that are available throughout the year.
In the spirit of Spay Day, we are also "talking up" our Outdoor Owned Cat Program – a grant- and public donation-funded program that sterilizes barn and outdoor cat populations in Waukesha County without cost to property owners. And we have proof this program is working: numbers of stray kittens coming into HAWS have dropped almost 11% since the outdoor cat program began in 2005. (Learn more by calling our SNIP staff at 262-542-8851, x109.)
Call us at HAWS (262-542-8851) or visit www.hawspets.org to help!
Happy Spay Day!
By the way - the month of March looks to be as fun as February has been - see what we're up to at our Upcoming Events calendar, and don't miss a minute!
