Meet adoptable dog Nena

When Nena was rescued, she was malnourished and ill. She's recovered now, and needs a forever home. Nena is deaf, but understands hand signals.  To learn more, contact us, or inquire at our adoption event this Sunday afternoon, at Petsmart in Bee Cave.

Update on Wallace. Please Help!

Wallace the dog had a successful surgery!

He was injured, and languished for several weeks, malnourished and unable to use his left hind leg.  A kind woman noticed him, and contacted us.  We directed her to a veterinary team, they operated to restore function of the leg, and now he's in the recovery phase.

We need your help.  We're still $700 short of paying for the surgery and follow-up care.  Please donate if you can. Thank you!

Chula

Chula was found on an extremely busy highway by one of our volunteers. The poor girl looked like she had never been cared for. She had long, dreadful toe nails, the longest we've ever seen, and was covered in fleas. Chula was taken to the vet right away for an exam. She received shots and an exam and fortunately tested negative for heartworms.

Sweet Pea Ruminations

I am much more of a dog person than I am a cat person. Cats just don't seem to need people, while dogs definitely do. So when the little wiggly black dog dubbed Sweet Pea came to stay at Thundering Paws, I was thrilled to make friends with her.

Dog Owners, Keep Sugar-Free Foods Away

Xylitol, a commonly used sweetener found in sugar-free gum and other products, can be very dangerous for dogs.

Read the Reuters news story here: Dog owners warned over sugar-free items.

Sometimes dogs like to help themselves to a little people food, and the consequences can be unexpected. Keep a close eye on all your doggies to keep them safe and happy!

Sweet Pea

On June 14, 2005, Excellent Volunteer Annie Stuhr and I were cleaning the room at the end of the hall where the floor needed to be replaced. We had just begun this task which had been put off again and again in favor of more crucial items on the to-do list: trapping feral cats before they get pregnant; driving animals to and from veterinarians; buying cat litter; scooping litter boxes. A call came in from Annie's husband, Bill. A hysterical neighbor had come barreling down their driveway yelling that there was a hurt puppy a few streets over from their house.
