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.

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

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

My name is Stormie, and I am a 10-year-old Golden Retriever. I am blind, but that doesn’t stop me from enthusiastically exploring the world, both inside and outside.I recently lived with a loving foster family for two months, but their first dog just wouldn’t accept me into her home. I would love to live with someone who can spend lots of time with me, who likes to walk every day, who is patient with my curious nature, and who is prepared to be loved wholeheartedly!
