Hounslow Animal Welfare Society

Established in 1976, Hounslow Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) rehomes hundreds of abandoned cats and other domestic animals (except dogs) each year. The charity has a strict non-destruction policy.

Fostering or adoption

Foster homes are always needed for cats, kittens, rabbits and guinea pigs while the charity finds new homes for them. Sometimes our foster homes adopt the animals they are looking after.

We are back this year with some fundraising events after the long gap when Covid meant that these events could not go ahead. 

We went to the Ealing Animals Fair on 2nd March and will next be at the St Margarets Fair on 2nd July and would love to see some of our supporters there!

Feline Pancytopenia outbreak in UK

The Royal Veterinary College is aware of 443 cats that are known to them based on cases treated at their own hospitals and information provided by some vets in the UK. Of these there was 64% mortality at time of reporting. 

Go to our new Feline Pancytopenia page for more news articles, details about symptoms, to check the Food Standards Agency product recall notice, donate to our fundraiser, and for more information about Awen and Maia (ex haws kittens) who both sadly died of this condition recently. Our hearts go to their adopters, foster carer and all others who are affected by this.

Please neuter your kittens!

One of the key reasons for the huge number of unwanted pets and strays coming to our charity, is that people are not neutering them. Neutering your animals has lots of benefits, both for their health and wellbeing. They are less likely to become problem pets due to territorial issues and/or being allowed to breed.
