Volunteers needed for gift wrapping

Gift wrapping is a fun way to help Thundering Paws! Each year, area book stores provide us with space and supplies to wrap gifts for the holiday shoppers in their stores. This is a great fundraising opportunity for us, and we could use your help. If you can volunteer for any of these shifts, please email Calene at calcat75@yahoo.com

Howliday Helpers

It's that time of year again!

Our local Barnes & Noble, BookPeople, and PetSmart stores are providing hardworking Thundering Paws volunteers the opportunity to earn money to pay our vets, provide shelter, and buy food and supplies for our many animals.

If you have a chance to stop by during these days and times, shop and support these businesses and let our volunteers wrap your gift or pose as Santa with your furbaby. Or even better, if you have the spare time, contact us to volunteer your time!

Thanks to UT, Girl Scouts, ACF

Thanks to volunteers from the UT chapter of Gamma Beta Phi. With your help, we painted two rooms at Thundering Paws. Thanks also to regular volunteers Kay, Dave, Stephanie, Samantha, and Jennifer who helped with the painting work. It looks great!

Animal Lovers Wanted

Cat tree We could really use some additional volunteers to help out at the Sanctuary. There is a wide variety of chores that need to be done on a regular basis -- folding laundry, washing walls and floors, petting cats, vacuuming, walking dogs, making sure there's food and fresh water all around, giving out treats and distributing catnip, scooping litter boxes, brushing kitties, cleaning bunny cages, doing yard work, playing with cats, keeping supplies maintained.

Kay Rolfes

I know, it's not even Thanksgiving yet! But the holiday season is very important for us and organizing the many fund raising events has already started. We sure could use your help!

Two of our holiday activities are gift wrapping and Santa Claws and Paws photos.

Both are very easy to get involved with and are so much fun! It will definitely cheer you up to see all the smiles you get with either of these activities and help get you in the spirit of the season.
