Louie wants to know - "What's this about a Camp KITten?"

No, your child's camp registration does not come with with a camp kitten (sorry!). BUT it does does with an awesome camp KIT full of goodies and activities, as well as the opportunity for your kids to virtually visit with our animals at HAWS!

Join us for Virtual Kids 'n Critters Camp: https://hawspets.org/kids-camp-waukesha/

Your TGIF #FuzzTherapy session is a special one! Angel came to us in May. She was adopted and returned twice; but we were sure that we would find the right family for this sweet girl. Thankfully, MOD Squad volunteers Larry and Anya worked tirelessly with her to improve her adoptability. We are ecstatic to say, that for this gorgeous dog the third time is a charm. Angel has been adopted!

Even MORE #MondayMailbag!
From Allie D.:
"We adopted the senior bonded pair known as Bailey and Dalshay, now Bean and Dash. These two have definitely filled a void we didn't know we were missing. They love going on walks and getting a ton of cuddles. We are beyond blessed these two came into our lives. Thanks HAWS!"

"I am so pleased with the new member of my family! She left HAWS as Sadie but now she is Honey. We have a lot of love to give each other and she's already making the most of it. She is quite comfortable sleeping next to me with her head on my leg (as seen in the picture). Thank you for taking such good care of her and for making the adoption process so easy! Rest assured, she has found her forever home."

Humans aren’t the only ones hunkering down and getting cozy for the winter…“getting cozy” is also why so many kittens are born come springtime!
Winter is a great time to spay/neuter outdoor cats with HAWS’ Project Guardian program (hawspets.org/project-guardian/). Thanks to a generous grant from the Petco Foundation and the ASPCA, HAWS is able to provide NO-FEE spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccine, and an identifying ear notch for all outdoor/barn cats! PLUS, HAWS may be able to help in the transportation of these cats to and from surgery and has outdoor cat shelters available upon request (available shelters may vary from the model pictured).
Help stop future unwanted litters, and allow these cats to live longer, and be happy and healthy:
Call HAWS 262-542-8851, x0 or email [email protected] to get involved.
