Here is your chance to take your pet out for a timed race for FREE!  Choose the 5K and bring Fido along or consider running the 10K without Fido.  Not up to running?  Choose the one mile walk. All proceeds go to support the Humane Animal Welfare Society

The Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County leads the community in animal welfare and assures sanctuary for all animals in need by:
  • Caring for 6,000 homeless, lost and neglected animals a year.
  • Specializing in adoptions services that match homeless pets with new families.
  • Reuniting lost pets with their families.
  • Providing classes, seminars and workshops to help new pet owners.
  • Rescuing companion animals and wildlife.
  • Providing life-saving spay/neuter and medical services at reduced cost.
  • Rehabilitating dogs through the Mod Squad, making them great adoption candidates.
They do all of this with no Federal, State or Local government funding!
Your donation helps all areas of HAWS, because: 
  • $10 can provide vaccinations and heartworm or feline leukemia testing for an adoptable pet
  • $25 ensures on-call assistance from our Animal Rescue Team for lost pets
  • $50 can spay or neuter a pet
  • $100 helps feed an entire shelter ward!
Imagine what $250, $500, $1,000 or more can do!  Donate NOW!
So bring Fido out for a great run, great time and a great cause.  There will be great food & beverages available, vendor booths and adoptable animals from HAWS.
