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!

Sierra was a feral kitten running around the back yard of a friend of Thundering Paws. One day our friend noticed that Sierra was dragging her right front leg behind her. It took two weeks of diligent effort, but Sierra was finally trapped and taken to the vet, who examined her and believed she had been hit by a car. Since there was too much nerve damage to save the leg, it was amputated. Sierra came to Thundering Paws and was tamed. She gets around just fine on three legs and is a very sweet kitty. She might be a bit shy at first, but once she knows you, she'll come over and roll onto her back for belly pets.
