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 the Creston Valley (covering RDCK Districts A,B,C, and the Town of Creston).

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.

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

I'm Trax, a handsome and clever adult Red Coon Hound. I'm at the shelter because my people had to move to a city and I'm a country boy at heart! I'm neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. I walk well on a Halti when I need to be on a leash. I'm looking for a home with people that can take care of an active guy like me and then chill out together! If you know and like hounds, come meet me!

I'm a friendly, energetic male German Shepherd X. I'm good with children and people and get along with animals. I like keeping my people close to me and worry a bit when left alone. I have a little bit of basic training and I need some extra leash work, but I'm a quick learner. I love squeaky toys, balls, and running(I'm a good runner!!!). Come meet me!
