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!

When this beautiful kitty was found with her newborns in 2003, she was completely feral and was going to be euthanized at a "kill" shelter. Fortunately, the director knew of Thundering Paws and brought her and the babies to us. We planned to transfer her to a feral colony after being spayed. However, one of our volunteers noticed a little twinkle in Lilly's eyes and had a hunch that she would be better off staying here. She's come a long way, and is comfortable on the cat run with her kitty friends.

July was a feral cat who was trapped and came to us very thin and ill. We started feeding her well, but she was unable to gain weight. One of our dedicated volunteers worked with her to get her tame enough to take to his vet. It took more than one visit and more than one vet to figure out what was wrong. In January, 2005, she underwent surgery which resulted in the removal of a golf-ball sized wad of plastic that was in her stomach. We figure that she had been dumpster diving and had eaten something that was wrapped in plastic. After extraction of this mass, she gained 11 ounces in two days, and had no more vomiting. She is now a very healthy cat, but still feral.
