Thundering Paws

Thundering Paws Animal Sanctuary

Thundering Paws is a no-kill, non-profit animal sanctuary located near south Austin in Dripping Springs, Texas (just miles from the Y in Oak Hill). We are home to an ever-changing number of animals, mostly cats, a few dogs and rabbits. We provide our beloved residents shelter, food, water, spaying/neutering, vaccinations, veterinary care, and a lot of love and attention. All cats are tested for FIV and feline leukemia during their time here and prior to adoption.

Why are we working so hard to do this for the pets in our care? Due to the overpopulation of companion animals in the United States, many often face unhappy fates. Our aim is to stop this unnecessary suffering altogether. This is a goal of a lifetime, perhaps several lifetimes, but Thundering Paws is committed to doing all we can about it today!

Date: November 13, 14, and 15.
Time: noon to 4:00pm.
The store address: 12812 Shops Parkway Ste 400, Austin, Texas 78738

Rusty, Martina, and Boo Boo are some of the older cats we will be featuring:

Rusty is friendly and mellow. He love dogs and gets along with other cats. What a great cat!


Boo Boo, pictured above, also loves dogs, and he gets along with other cats too! He wants to be petted and adored. He's just fun to have around because he has such a great personality and is so interested in people and the environment.



Ask about Martina. She's a very endearing black kitty. She will be a wonderful companion for some lucky person.

Met these and other cats (dogs, too!) at Petsmart in Bee Cave, this weekend, November 13-15, from noon to 4:00pm.
