PAWS is a volunteer-based, no-kill shelter in the Creston Valley. We are dedicated to finding loving homes for abandoned, rescued, surrendered, and abused pets in RDCK Districts A, B, and C.

We educate the public through community outreach. We provide veterinary care, rehabilitation, socialization, and spaying or neutering as required. Community outreach is achieved through education, re-homing assistance, and reuniting lost pets.

PAWS philosophy as a no-kill shelter means that PAWS pets that don’t find their furever homes live out their lives, loved and cared for at the shelter or fostered by volunteers.

We are not affiliated with or funded by the BC SPCA, or any municipal or provincial branch of government. Our funding comes strictly from donations, fundraising, and grants.

Huge Shout out to Garrett and Natasha Huscroft with Kokanee Ford for raising funds and providing much needed supplies for the shelter. Big thanks to Laurie and Tom Barrett from Hound N Mouser for offering a generous 25% off to anybody purchasing product to help fill this beautiful F-150 truck for PAWS. Not to mention doing the delivery that helped fill the truck! High Five to Creston's own Jensen Shields of Juice FM for helping spread the word about this rad fundraiser! We are so much closer to raising the money PAWS needs to start and complete the renovation on our Cat Area at the shelter. Make sure to check out our $ Thermometer. We will keep you posted on our progress!

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

I'm Cloe, a stunning senior girl. As a long-haired Calico girl, I bring a gentle presence to my space. I have really soft fur and am a delight to pet. I take great delight in hanging out in my cat tree and watching the activities around me. If you're looking for a 'keep to herself' but friendly cat, check me out.
