The HAWS facility expansion was approved by
​the HAWS Board of Directors early in 2006 and
​construction was completed in December, 2009.
​The facility expansion called for the addition of
5,400 square feet of new space, along with the
reconfiguration of the existing 13,500 square foot facility.

Plans included separate housing areas that limited interaction between species, in
addition to improvements in ventilation to reduce the chances of disease transmission.
​The bottom line: a healthy, stress-free pet has a greater chance of being adopted into
​the right family and we're already seeing the positive results of that!

HAWS is also about education - we present a variety of classes, seminars and outreach programs each year. An educated adopter can make a better informed pet choice and be better prepared to adjust to life with their new family member. And, with classes and other resources available to them, any pet owner can be assured of a life-long, quality relationship with our companion animals.
