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.

Featured Pet

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

Zia is such a pretty cat! She is curious and attentive, calm and relaxed. This nice girl warms up to her people once she knows them. Zia does require regular brushing to keep her beautiful coat looking its best. Our PAWS volunteers think she is lovely! She is ok with other like minded cats, but Zia would appreciate being the only cat in her new home. Being a senior cat, Zia does have some health issues. Plus, she is eligible for our Seniors for Seniors program! Give PAWS a call to meet this nice girl.
