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.

Scruffy was found left on someone's property. As soon as we had room we were able to take this lovely 1-2 year old boy in. He did need a drastic haircut and a bath. So now he is neutered and vaccinated and ready for a home with at least one lap as he is very loving and likes to purr a lot.

Hiccup is a four year old black lab/bull mastiff mix in need of re-homing. He is a sweet and energetic dog, good with kids, other dogs and non-aggressive toward cats. Hiccup is neutered and up to date on all his shots. Current owner feels that Hiccup deserves a home and family who can spend more time with him, exercising, playing and having adventures. They are not in a hurry to have him adopted, but interested in trying to find the ideal family for his forever home. Is Hiccup the one for you?
