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.

So many great ways to give to PAWS... Why then choose Creston-Kootenay Foundation? They take your donation, pool it with others and invest it. You, dear donor, get a tax receipt and our shelter benefits from an ongoing source of funding!

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.
