Pet Identification Programs

Pet ID Tags

Even the most careful pet owners can have their pet go missing. We can help reunite you as quickly as possible.
You can buy a permanent ID tag from PAWS office for a one-time fee of $15. The tag doesn’t have to be renewed. And if you keep your contact information up to date, we can usually reunite you and your pet quickly.
The finder calls PAWS and gives us the PAWS ID number on the tag. We’ll call you and help you arrange to claim your pet.

Town of Creston Animal Bylaw

The Town of Creston requires that all dogs over 6 months old must be licensed (unless the dog is kept in town for less than 1 month per calendar year). To learn more about the Bylaw and licensing your dog, see the Animal Care and Responsibility Bylaw No. 1826 (2015) Part 8.

*Remember to keep your contact information up to date.


Having your pet microchip or tattooed is another permanent way to ensure you’ll be notified as quickly as possible once your pet is found. Call Creston Veterinary Hospital at 250-428-9494 for more information.

*Remember to keep your contact information up to date.

Tags for Hope

TagsForHope visualizes a world where adoptable and treatable pets are no longer euthanized, usually because a lack of space, a treatable illness, or they’re considered unadoptable because of their breed, colour, or age.

TagsForHope works to empower shelters and rescue groups by giving them the necessary resources and support to save these at-risk pets.

Every purchase allows them to provide food, critical medical care, transportation out of a high-kill shelter, and give the pet more time to be adopted.
