Hearts and Hands for the Animals

At Campbell River Partners for Animal Welfare Society (CRPAWS), we rescue, nurture, then place kittens and cats – first in our network of foster homes and then we carefully match them with loving furever homes. We are a passionate, volunteer-driven charity with extensive cat care experience.

We also administer the Lost and Found Animals of Campbell River Facebook group (LFACR), which works with over 8000 community members to assist in returning lost pets to their owners.


Each year more than 200 cats and kittens come through CRPAWS. Our adoption coordinators follow a robust matching process to ensure you find your purrfect companion.


Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do. Without them, we couldn’t rescue and find loving homes for the kittens and cats we take in each year. There are many ways to become involved in our organization.


As a volunteer-driven charity, your help is vital to ending cat overpopulation and homelessness. All donations go directly to funding the supplies, equipment and veterinary costs required to ensure the cats in our care are warm, safe and healthy.
