 Adopt/Re-Home/Foster

This page lists all our PAWS pets waiting for their furever homes, privately owned, pets being re‑homed, and pets eligible for the Seniors for Seniors program.

PAWS ensures the pet has had a vet check, at least 1 vaccination, and has been spayed or neutered if old enough.

Re-Homing

Private adoptions (re-homing) are between the current pet owner and the interested party. PAWS has no other involvement except to provide a courtesy posting for these pets and help connect them with a new family. Calls PAWS at 250-428-7297 for the contact information of the person re‑homing the pet. PAWS does not post pets that are for sale for re-homing.

Seniors for Seniors Foster Program

The PAWS ‘Seniors for Seniors’ program matches people 60 and over in the Creston area with older pets. These matches usually work out well because older pets are trained, calmer, and quieter than younger animals, so they better fit the lifestyle of an older person.
 
Older adults may not want the commitment of a pet but have the room in both their heart and their home for one. Senior pets can sometimes be harder to adopt because of their age or because they also have special needs, so this is also a win-win for the pet.
           
The program matches a senior pet with the applicant. PAWS covers the medical expenses and special needs items.
 
In turn, we ask that:
·      if the cat is an indoor cat, it always be kept indoors
·      you let PAWS know how the match is working out
·      you let PAWS know if the foster pet has any health problems or behavioural concerns
·      you let PAWS know if you can no longer care for the pet
 
Call PAWS at 250-428-7297 to learn more about the program.

Foster Parent Program

PAWS often receives pets that need just a little bit of extra care. They may need extra attention because of health/medical needs, they’re pregnant or nursing, or they need more training or socialization.
 
You can help pets in need by becoming a foster parent. Please call us at 250-428-7297 to learn more about the program.
