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!

Eefa the kitten's left hind leg is too badly damaged to regain function. Surgery to remove the leg will happen this week.

Carolina the cat will have surgery to repair a broken front leg.  Carolina and her kittens were rescued from flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. They and are now in a Thundering Paws foster home.

Update 9/17/2017:  Eefa and Carolina are recovering from surgery.  Many thanks to all who have donated toward the cost of Eefa's surgery!  Carolina now has a metal implant to hold the bone together. It turns out Carolina's operation was the more expensive. Please donate to help cover the cost. Recent pictures of Carolina are hereThank you!

Can you provide a foster home for a rescue cat (or dog)?  Many were displaced by the flooding of Hurricane Harvey.  They need homes until they are adopted.  If you can provide a foster home, please fill out a foster application.

Please print, fill out, and scan (or take pictures of each page) and return to us, by email to info@thunderingpaws.org.  Feel free to cut & paste from the application into an email or document editor (such as Microsoft Word or Apple Pages), if that makes it easier to fill out.

We have two adoption events this weekend. The first is at Whole Pets in Dripping Springs on Saturday, 11am to 3pm. We plan to show the black cat Mr. Jones, and sisters Eefa and Ashling.  The tabby brothers Smokey and Nine, and some of Gracie's kittens, are also a possibility.

On Sunday at Petsmart in Bee Cave, 12noon to 4pm, meet kittens Paolo and Polly, Clara and Charles (Charlie Chaplin), Hanna and her kittens Idaho and Yukon Gold, and the cuddly tortoiseshell kitten Mazama. We hope to bring others.

Members of our adoption team will be at both events, to answer your questions, and to facilitate introductions.
