HAWS Pets of the Week
The lucky family that adopts one of the pets featured here on our blog will receive a coupon from HAWS good for a “congratulations” gift bag from End of the Leash!
To learn more about how to adopt through HAWS, please visit their adoption page. You may also give them a call at 262.542.8851.
Gus is a sweet, social mouse. He has been at HAWS since December! If you are looking for a relatively low maintenance pet, a mouse may be for you. They make wonderful little companions and they don't take up a lot of space so are great for those people who cannot have larger animals.
Gnar is a 10-year-old Spitz Mix who came to HAWS as a stray. Since being at the shelter he is good with cats and dogs. We believe that he may have poor hearing. He will also need an owner that will give him a balanced diet and exercise program as he is overweight.
Easter Weekend Hours
Both of our stores will be closed on Sunday, March 27th in observance of the Easter holiday. We'll reopen at 9am on Monday morning.
Have a beautiful weekend!
