Each year HAWS offers support and sanctuary to more than 8,000 pets. The HAWS Schallock Center for Animals has an enriching, peaceful environment to provide hospice care, exercise and respite to pets in need.

Expanding these opportunities at the Schallock Center will support meaningful lives for pets and their people for generations to come.
Each year HAWS engages more than 11,000 future leaders through humane, character- driven programming. Expanding on existing efforts to offer year-round STEAM opportunities to schools, particularly those with greater need, Schallock Center will encourage discovery in nature and foster compassion for animals.
