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' 27th ANNUAL
PET WALKATHON IS
Join us at Minooka Park from 9am-3pm for our 27th Annual event, a day-long festival for pets and their people! You can help support the HAWS cause, on foot and online.
Each year this event is produced and sponsored by the Friends of HAWS volunteer group - their hard work makes sure that 100% of your donations for the Walk go directly to the animals at HAWS!
Walk the trails, enter the dog & owner contests, check out the Lure Course (weather permitting)...shop, shop, shop at our vendor booths...meet your favorite area Mascots and more. There is something for everyone - for you, your pet, your kids, your parents, your friends...
Here's how to get involved:
Download a pledge form - you'll need it for free parking at Minooka on Saturday.
Set up your own personal online fundraising page. I did - it's easy, fun...and it WORKS!
Be a BIGGER part of the action:
~ Become a Walkathon Sponsor.
~ Tell us Why You Walk - share your story with Walk@hawspets.org - we'll publish them on the Walk web page after the event!
Don't miss a minute of the fun!
We'll see YOU this Saturday.
HAWS volunteers will be at the park rain or shine to collect donations. Our rain date is May 8th, at HAWS.
By the way...we've got another neat event coming soon: Save the Date!!
