A Tale of Two Kitties, Chelsea, One Big Bun...and HAWS!

Three "Happy Tails" - success stories from HAWS to warm your heart this holiday season.

All the animals we help at HAWS have their own unique story, and together they make our mission come alive!  Please enjoy these three "happy tails" from HAWS!

Trooper and the Old Timer

Two stray cats came to HAWS within a few weeks of each other needing lots of help. “Trooper” had such extensive injuries that one of his legs needed to be amputated, while “Old Timer” was blind and dealing with a bladder infection. After initial care at HAWS, one foster home took both cats for their recovery, and the two boys quickly became pals.  They played and snuggled together, and despite losing a limb Trooper even brought toys to Old Timer. Once the boys were completely healthy they found that their temporary foster home was now a permanent one, and they continue to bring joy to that family today.

Chelsea
Six-month-old Chelsea came to HAWS knowing how to sit, but not much else! She was immediately placed in HAWS’ Mod Squad™ program, to be handled and fed according to a plan tailored specifically to her needs. She wanted to please and made strides quickly, becoming more confident as she learned. When the right family came in they couldn’t wait take her home! They enrolled her in HAWS’ dog training program to continue her great progress – and each visit she pulls on the leash to see her “old family” from HAWS.

Giant Jaxon

Jaxon the Checkered Giant rabbit was found wandering, unneutered and with an overzealous “bun-sonality” making him difficult to handle. Due to his size and some of his personality traits he proved difficult to re-home. Through HAWS partnership with the Wisconsin House Rabbit Society, a little social networking and lots of work by HAWS’ small animal crew, a great home was found for Jaxon. His new home has been given all the tools for success – including the suggestion of clicker training to give him something to do!
