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 special boy is just one of the many awesome pets available for adoption at HAWS!
Meet Charlie, a 7-years-young Pit Bull. He hasn't been hanging out with us at HAWS for too long...but we didn't need much time at all to fall in love with him. And pamper him (as evidenced by these pictures)!
Charlie is a well-mannered dog by ANY standards, and would work well in many households. He's lovable and loving.
"Just look at my face!!! I am Charlie and if you are looking for the 'perfect pit'...I am it! Somehow I managed to wind up here at HAWS. Don't get me wrong, it's GREAT here, but I am a family dog and deserve the best family ever. Please read up on my breed and remember lots of people don't get that Pits can be sweet and calm....and that's totally me! I am good with cats and other dogs and kids are fine, but not ones that are too small. (I am strong and can knock the little ones over.) Stop in and see me - I am just the BEST!
HAWS is open 7 days a week for viewing and adoption - what are you waiting for?!?!
