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.

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

I am approximately 6 years old and an awesome mix of Red Heeler & Kelpie, which is reflected in my good looks and intelligence! I'm well mannered,and clearly have picked up lots because I am that kind of dog! I'm okay cats but not as fond of small kids. I have so much to offer, I would love a chance to make you happy, could you do the same for me? Let's meet!
