“MADE IN CHINA”? In light of the many recent pet food/treat recalls, we respectfully request donations to HAWS do not contain “imported” ingredients or be made in China. Thank you for understanding as we try to keep our shelter animals safe!

Do you have a school class or group that would like to do a supply drive? Or maybe you have particular items you can secure for us? Feel free to call us at 262-542-8851 if you have any questions about our needs. We will be happy to give more detailed information – and discuss how we can work together for the animals. We’ll even post pictures of your group in action on our Facebook page, here on our website and in our quarterly Tattle Tails newsletter.
