Nosh and Mush (well, maybe) at HAWS!

This Saturday, HAWS again joins in the fun of Waukesha's Jan-Boree with "Cool Your Paws at HAWS" - a fest for people and their pets!

Join in the fun of Waukesha Jan-Boree with HAWS at "Cool Your Paws at HAWS II" - this Saturday, January 19, from 11:00am to 3:00pm!  

We'll have a Shelter Scavenger Hunt and coloring contest for kids, and Hotdog Bobbing and the Peanut Butter Lick-Off for pets!  Enjoy treats for the whole family, meet adoptable pets, "hang" with HAWS’ mascot Lucky, and enter the raffle for a flat screen TV and firepit. 

Pets are DEFINITELY welcome!!  Those pets joining in the fun should be secured in a carrier or on a 6' leash for safety.

Cool Your Paws at HAWS Highlights:

11:30am - “K9 Cuisine with Dr. Claudeen” 
This pet cooking class/demonstration focuses on healthy pet eating. Make Lab Lasagna or a Poodle Parfait for your best friend, and take home the leftovers! Pre-registration is requested, call 262-542-8851 for details. Participants are asked to donate $5 each to defray the cost of food.


(And, if we get 6" or more of snow before Saturday...so start doing your snow dances now...)

Weather permitting, rides will be given at 10-minute intervals.  Signup begins at 11:30am - first come, first served, $5 donation/run, proceeds benefit HAWS’ animal care and adoption programs.
