Thanks, United Way Day of Caring


Thundering Paws Animal Sanctuary and German Shepherd Rescue of Central Texas would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all the organizers and volunteers who participated in the United Way's recent Day of Caring. We had the good fortune to benefit from this program. Volunteers from Dell and 3M generously gave their time and muscle-power to help us with a variety of tasks at Thundering Paws and at our sister organization, German Shepherd Rescue.

They showed up with smiles and lots of enthusiasm and jumped right in with our "wish list" of chores. In about 15 minutes two large holes in our driveway had been filled in and cleaning inside the shelter was underway.

Cleaning house

In spite of the heat, the yard was mowed and some trees were trimmed. Dogs were washed and puppies were played with.

Bunny cages were cleaned and kittens were cuddled. Carpeted ramps were installed in the cat run and shelves were installed in the big shed.

And so much more! Our volunteers even came up with projects that were not on our list, like building a much-needed step outside our back door.

We do have a dedicated team of regular volunteers who manage, sometimes just barely, to keep up with the daily chores and regular cleaning. We all really appreciate the extra help catching up on thorough cleaning and getting some special projects accomplished.

There is always more to do than we have time for!
