Humane society is building on a strong foundation for a better future
The Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) of Waukesha County, Inc. will begin their facility expansion and renovation one week from today on Monday, April 6, 2009. A groundbreaking ceremony at 5:00 p.m. will kick-off the construction project.
“We are all very excited to get our project underway,” noted Executive Director Lynn Olenik. “Even in a down economy the animals within our community need our assistance. Properly meeting their needs continues to be our top priority.”
Olenik continued: “Animals at HAWS will benefit from less cross-contamination, improved isolation facilities, and more comfortable housing. A new exercise area for cats and quiet area for smaller or older dogs will also add comfort, and ultimately make for more adoptable pets.”
Expanded education facilities will allow HAWS to reach out to more groups and families – and especially to more children and youth. Redesigned customer service areas will feature separate places for adoptions, animal intakes and outgoing release/reclaim of found pets.
“Our Capital Campaign Committee is still actively fundraising for the needed fixtures and equipment,” added Board President Fred Hilton. “For those interested there are still many naming opportunities in various price ranges. We definitely welcome any and all donations.”
