Animal Abuse and Neglect Complaints

PAWS takes animal abuse and neglect seriously. Because we are a registered charity, we have no authority to act on suspected/reported cases. We ask anyone concerned about the welfare of a domesticated animal they see or know are in distress to please call the proper authorities:

  • Town of Creston: The Bylaw Officer has the authority to investigate. Bylaw can also involve the BCSPCA.
  • Outside Town limits: Call the RCMP Non-Emergency line. They will investigate and will involve the BCSPCA as needed.  

PAWS works very closely with all three level of enforcement to assist them with the care of the animals:

1.   Town of Creston: 250-428-2214
2.   Town of Creston RCMP Non-Emergency Line: 250-428-9313
3.   BCSPCA Provincial Call Centre: 1-855-622-7722
