HAWS Is Nurtured By Caring Community

Our great community is doing great things for HAWS!

HAWS, the , has recently been the proud and grateful beneficiary of several amazing community-based donations, all in support of the “HAWS Cause!”

Zeus & Company, a pet food distributor, donated several pallets of product to HAWS – about 4,000 pounds! Todd Oilschlager, a Zeus representative, noted the food and treats are valued at more than $5,800. Many thanks to Todd, a HAWS business partner and the man who brought Zeus and HAWS together, and Zeus & Company owner, David Levy, for their generosity. The full tummies of HAWS’ residents are also very thankful!

Girl Scout Troop 4294 in Waukesha completed work on the Memorial Garden at HAWS, with help from their parents and the following local businesses:  3-D Greenhouse, AAA Asphalt, Anchor Bank, Eagle Media, Halquist Stone, Home Depot-Waukesha, Phil Kelber/Mason & Chimney Specialists, Lang Landscape, Christopher Lee’s Concrete Creations, Mavroff Mulch, Piala’s, Prospect Hill Nursery, Rozman True Value, Shady Acres Nursery and Trees on the Move.  This reflective garden is dedicated to all beloved animals.

First Weber – Lake Country held their third annual Take Your Dogs To Work Day in June, raising $3,200! First Weber employees, their best canine friends and many other visitors enjoyed lunch and each other’s company. HAWS’ Mobile Adoption Center truly felt “Home Sweet Home” with the realtors and their staff.
