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.

These 5 cats are just a handful of the great felines waiting at HAWS for their new adoptive homes. We have all ages, colors and sizes...if you've ever thought about adding a cat to your family, NOW is definitely the time.
Even better, you can take advantage of our Trick or Treat Cat Adoption Special!
First, come to HAWS and find your new best cat buddy, aged 4 months and up. Then, pick a piece of candy from our Treat basket. The number on the wrapper is your adoption fee – anywhere from $30 all the way down to $1!
We've even got special deals for pairs of cats and kittens – so if you just have to have 2 of these cat-tastic pets, you’re in luck, too. Trust us, black cats at HAWS are the bearers of GOOD fortune!
Learn all about HAWS' adoptable friends at our Pet Showcase at hawspets.org. Or, better yet, stop by in person - HAWS is open 7 days a week at 701 Northview Road, Waukesha.
See you at the Shelter!
By the way – from our Haunted HAWS to our Guinea Pig Primer, from the Holiday Bazaar to Holiday Pet Photos, we’ve got lots of great goings-on for pets and their people. We hope you’ll join in the fun - all in support of the “HAWS cause.”
