When a stray animal arrives at HAWS, our ultimate goal is to happily reunite owner and pet! Receiving a lost pet report from the owner missing their pet greatly helps us in this process.

Your Lost Report will remain on file for 60 days. If you would like your lost report to stay on file for a longer time period, please notify us before the end of the 60 day period. If you find your pet please call us at 262-542-8851, x0 or email us at [email protected] and give us both your name and your pet’s name so we know to remove your pet from our lost reports.

HAWS contracts with most Waukesha County municipalities as the intake and holding facility for lost pets. Per Wisconsin State Law, stray animals are held for 4 days before becoming property of the holding facility and being available to be placed for adoption. Animal-at-large fees, licensing, boarding, vaccination records and the like may be due before your pet can be reclaimed. Our Animal Rescue Team can guide you through the process to reclaim your lost pet, with information specific to your city or town.

For additional information, please call us at 262-542-8851. We are open 7 days a week and on-call 24/7.

To ensure we can quickly contact you when we have news of your lost pet, or your pet arrives at HAWS, PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER ON YOUR LOST REPORT!!!
