It’s All About the Animals
In 1965 a group of concerned Waukesha County residents realized
there was a need for a county-wide humane society and centralized
shelter, where homeless, stray and injured animals could seek refuge
and a second chance. The Humane Animal Welfare Society of
Waukesha County – HAWS – was born.
In 1969, HAWS’ first shelter opened. But additions to the building
came quickly as needs continued to rise! Expansions in 1973, 1979,
1991, 2009 and 2012 included specialized wards for dogs, cats and
small animals; classrooms, training and consult areas; a spay/neuter
suite and medical clinic; all illustrating HAWS' dedication to community
education and the welfare of all of our animal friends.
Today HAWS accommodates 8,000 animals and welcomes 35,000 human visitors each year. As an open admissions shelter, HAWS accepts animals regardless of age, health, temperament or breed. As a full service humane society, HAWS offers programs and services that promote responsible pet ownership and prevent animal abuse and neglect – in our community and beyond.
The Humane Animal Welfare Society: Building a Society that's Humane.
Building on this strong foundation, HAWS’ expansions and renovations ensure our facility will continue to meet the needs of our community. In 2015, with 100% support from our Board of Directors - both verbal and financial, HAWS again embarks on a facility expansion campaign, reflecting the growth in our area and ever-evolving nature of our work to make life better for our community’s pets and their people.
Key growth initiatives outlined are the result of the popularity of HAWS' education programs, the demand for Spay-Neuter services, the need for dog training classes and 1:1 consultations for both dogs and cats, an increasingly high volume of Animal Rescue calls and the improvements in sheltering accommodations. HAWS will meet these needs for our community and continue to be the #1 resource for pets and their people!
