HAWS joins with ‘Good Morning America’ to promote pet adoption

HAWS, the Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County, is partnering with North Shore Animal League America and ABC network’s Good Morning America to promote dog adoption and awareness of homeless pets, from now until Nov. 22.

“We are so excited to be part of this event,” said HAWS executive director Lynn Olenik in a press statement. “There are so many wonderful dogs at HAWS, and around the country, waiting patiently at shelters for their forever homes. This is a great way to get the word out about them, and a fun way to engage our adopters and let them show off their new family members.”

Special hashtags have been created for Mission PAWsible: The GMA Doggie Adoptathon to encourage adopters and shelters to share their pets and adoptables on social media. HAWS is including these hashtags — #GMAPAWdoption and #GetYourRescueOn — along with HAWS’ own #Adopt4pawsfromHAWS in posts of adoptables and success stories.

A non-profit organization established in 1965, HAWS assists 8,000 animals each year. For more information, visit hawspets.org.
