Home Adopt/Re-Home/Foster Lost & Found Member/Volunteer Donations/Fundraising Events About Us Links Contact Us  



PAWS is a 100% volunteer-run organization. We operate through fundraising, donations, and grants. It goes without saying that fundraising is a vital part of our organization!

We hold many events throughout the year to fundraise, including bake/hot dog sales, raffles, online silent auctions, and our yearly yard sale.  

There are many ways you can help PAWS!

Financial donations are gratefully accepted. A tax-deductible receipt is issued upon request (we’ll need a name and address) for any type of donation over $20.
Our charitable status business number is 89135 2569 RR0001.

  • Mail your donation or come by the shelter to pay by cash, cheque, or debit:
    PAWS, 2805 Lower Wynndel Rd., Creston, B.C. V0B 1G8.
  • Donate online by e-transfer (send to pets@pawscreston.ca). You can also pay by debit or credit card, PayPal, or through CanadaHelps.org.
  • Creston and District Credit Union: Simply let them know it’s for PAWS. You can also set up automatic monthly payments.
  • Columbia Bottle Recycling: Donate your recyclables. Bring the recyclables to the depot and tell them it’s for PAWS. 1420 Northwest Blvd, Creston, BC V0B 1G6.  While PAWS does not have recyclable bottle pick-up service, your donation is greatly appreciated. If you can't bring the recyclables (e.g., vehicle or mobility constraints), please call the office at 250-428-7297 and we'll put the call out for a volunteer to pick up the bagged/boxed (only) recyclables. 
  • Creston-Kootenay Foundation: The CKF pools your tax-deductible donation with other donations and invests it.
    You’ll get a tax receipt, and our shelter will benefit from an ongoing source of funding!

Tags for Hope
