volunteers

Thanks to Gamma Beta Phi Volunteers!

On Sunday, November 11, eleven students from UT's Gamma Beta Phi, an honors club for students with grade point averages of 3.75 and above, came to Thundering Paws and gave us three hours of work and animal loving.

They washed down the cat run, scrubbed dirty litter boxes, vacuumed and mopped, moved heavy things, cleaned out our dog Sweet Pea's kennel, and fed, watered, and scooped litter boxes inside the house. As if that wasn't enough, they stayed and petted and brushed everyone who would let them, which is quite a lot of petting and brushing.

Work (and Fun) at the Sanctuary

Thundering Paws could use more on-site volunteers. Have you ever wondered what a whole house full of cats (and dogs and bunnies) looks like? Come on out and spend a Sunday afternoon with us. There is always cleaning and organizing to do here, or you could give one of our regular volunteers a welcome break and scoop all the litter boxes. It's a good way to meet new kitty friends in every room.

Online Shopkeeper Wanted

Do you have experience selling things online?

We have great stuff to sell, and need help getting it sold. We always get so many wonderful items for our silent auctions at events, some of which are unsold or unclaimed, and generous donors also provide us with works of art or goods that can be sold to raise funds to provide for all our animals. All we need now is someone with the time and experience to set up an online store of some kind.

Foster Homes Needed

We currently have a number of animals in need of good foster homes.

Boat kittens
Two of the boat kittens

The six boat kittens--Raul, Raya, Solange, Solace, Victor, and Isabel, need a new place to stay. These are all friendly outgoing tabby kittens, about 5 months old, cute as can be. And you don't have to take them all! Fostering even one or two would be a great help.

On Monday, December 4, a WONDERFUL local veterinarian (hereinafter known as "L") and a WONDERFUL local cat rescue person (hereinafter known as "J"), neither of whom have given me permission to use their names, donated their time and talents to come to Thundering Paws and, with the help of our WONDERFUL volunteer, Scott Haywood and I, vaccinated cats.

I was paying a woman to do the chores morning and evening. This wasn't working out too well because what I did--mostly--instead of the chores, was hustle money to pay her. At that time, Breed Hardware, both Austin locations, allowed me to sit outside their stores and "table"-- that activity of setting up a table, hanging a sign on it, putting a jar on it, standing beside it and handing out flyers and asking for donations--any time I wanted to do so. It was a great gig while it lasted and I could make between $15 and $100 an hour standing in front of a Breed Hardware.
