HAWS, a non-profit organization established in 1965, assists 6,000+ animals each year and welcomes more than 31,000 human visitors annually. As an open admissions and full service shelter, we accept animals regardless of age, health, temperament or breed. Our active humane education department offers programs and services that promote responsible pet ownership in our community and beyond.
HAWS is located south of I94 and between Hwy. J and Hwy. T. The shelter is across the street from the Waukesha County Airport and Expo Center on Northview Road.
