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.

The PAWS fundraising for the Cat Area renovations got another much needed boost when PEALOWS put on a 'Donate $2' fundraiser at their tills. Our generous community raised over $2300 in the week that it ran. And the icing on the cake? PEALOWS donated the balance so that we reached our goal of $20,000! Needless to say, all the volunteers at PAWS are over the moon happy!!!

Phase1 of the renovations is now a reality because of the amazing support from the public and local businesses.

Gratefully accepting the $5300 cheque from Julia and Brian Pealow is PAWS President Debby Crane.

Featured Pet

Nichole is a blue-eyed Ragdoll/Siamese X girl with a lovely long haired coat. This 8-year-old friendly girl needs to be an indoor cat; however, she really enjoys the view from her foster mom's balcony! She can be a bit skittish if startled, but she loves her brush, playing with her string and, of course, getting lots of cuddles in. She's in foster care but would enjoy meeting with someone who could give her a fur-ever home! Give PAWS a call for more information about this nice cat.
