Thundering Paws

Thundering Paws Animal Sanctuary

Thundering Paws is a no-kill, non-profit animal sanctuary located just outside of Austin in Dripping Springs, TX. 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, many 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!

Fleur Marie is 15 today!

Happy Birthday to Fleur Marie!  She's the personal cat of our director, Anne Zabolio.  Life is wonderful with an adult cat.  We'll have lots of kittens available for adoption soon, but if you're looking to adopt, please consider an adult cat like Bella, Blue and Ollie, Mohawk, or Whisper, or the others listed on our "Adopt" page.

Reminder: There's a few days left in Fleur's "Kitten Shower" for all those Thundering Paws kittens. Please donate to help us get them all ready for adoption!

Here's a video slideshow of the three kittens we call "The Potatoes".  Their mom is Hanna, a friendly long-haired tabby.  She is raising them in a Thundering Paws foster home, so they can get used to living in a house with people.  Hanna and the Potatoes -- all female -- will be adoptable after she is done raising them, probably in July.

 

To help us care for all the Thundering Paws kittens, visit our online "Kitten Shower" --

Or go to our sponsorship page, where mother cats, and some kittens, are listed until they're ready for adoption. Our long-term resident animals are listed there as well.

Jake the German Shepherd Dog was recently rescued from a cruel situation. He's a very nice dog; he's been good with other dogs and with cats. Update, July 2017: After appearing briefly at our Sunday adoption events, Jake has been adopted!
