KIDS CLUBS AT HAWS
What is K'HAWS?
KHAWS is an educational group for kids between the ages of 8 and 12. We teach children about animal safety and pet care responsibilities, while interacting with the shelter's animals. The “membership” into this club is only $40 per child and includes a free stuffed animal! Meetings are held one Friday night each month during the school year.
Each month we will feature a guest speaker sharing their expertise on an animal-related topic, after which we will participate in several activities around the shelter such as socializing animals and making pet toys and treats!
We will be meeting from 7:00 p.m. – 8:50 p.m. on the following nights:
We look forward to seeing you!
Call 262-542-8851, x123 for more information.

HAWS has an exciting program for middle school aged kids and we’d like to invite your child to be a part of it!
For many years, we’ve been asked about volunteer opportunities for children. Currently, our volunteer opportunities require that children ages 13-15 partner with a parent, both in volunteer training and while volunteering here at HAWS.
Critter Club is a unique volunteer and educational opportunity, which provides opportunities for kids in the 6th through 8th grades to volunteer at HAWS on Saturday mornings from 9am to 11am without a parent, and attend educational programs on Thursdays at HAWS between 6pm and 7:30pm. A Critter Club session will run for an entire school semester, and costs $150.00 per session to cover our staffing costs, as well as other expenses.
Critter Club members must apply for membership, submit recommendations from two non-related adults (teachers, ministers, scout leaders, etc.) and write an essay about why pets are important. Once these submissions are reviewed, we will invite the best candidates to join the program within two weeks of the first-scheduled meeting.
