The Creston Pet Adoption and Welfare Society (PAWS) is a registered charity established in 1996.  We are a volunteer based organization committed to finding safe, loving, forever homes for abused, abandoned, stray and unwanted animals in the Creston Valley.

PAWS serves an area of approximately 3500 square miles in the southeast corner of British Columbia.  In 2010, our goal to establish Claudia's Place, a full service animal shelter facility, was achieved.

PAWS volunteers take to heart our motto: 
"Men have forgotten this truth........but you must not forget it.  You become responsible forever for what  you have tamed."
              
('The Little Prince' by Antoine de Saint-Exupery)

Shelter Hours:
Monday to Saturday; 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Closed Sundays and Holidays

We are an organization made up almost entirely of volunteers.  Our one paid employee is our on-site caretaker, whose wages are offset by the rental of our Caretaker Cottage.  We are a private charity, exclusive to the Creston Valley.  We are not affiliated with or funded by the BCSPCA, or by the Provincial or Municipal Government.  Our funding comes from donations, fundraising and grants.

   
FEATURED PET
Vida 
I'm a PAWS Pet! Click here to find out more about me.

I'm Vida, a friendly orange and white young male. Now that I'm six month old I have found my confidence and I'm over my shyness. I love to play and cuddle. I get along with other cats and would be a great addition to any family! I have been neutered already and my vaccinations are up to date, so come down to the shelter and meet me!
