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!
