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,
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)
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 breitling the Provincial or Municipal
Government. Our funding comes from donations,
fundraising and grants.
