Member Organization Spotlight 

HAWS   


The Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County, or HAWS for short, was established in 1965 as a private, non-profit animal welfare organization. We provide food, shelter and veterinary care for thousands of unwanted, abandoned and stray animals every year, with the goal of finding each one a permanent, loving home.

 

Our mission statement: HAWS leads the community in animal welfare and assures sanctuary for animals in need, is further facilitated by an active humane education program and provides both wildlife rescue and animal control services for several Waukesha County municipalities.  We are committed to the community and provide other programs benefiting it such as Project Guardian- for outdoor cats, mobile adoption programs, behavior services including training classes, consultations and MOD Squad rehabilitation for resident dogs.
