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!

This spring, we've taken in more than two dozen kittens, to get them ready for adoption later this year.  We need help covering the cost of food and veterinary work.  The average veterinary cost, including exam, deworming, flea medication, spay/neuter, microchip, and vaccinations, is $108 per kitten.  Please help by "Bankrolling a Kitten!".

In addition to caring for our resident animals, each year Thundering Paws takes in kittens who would otherwise grown up untame and homeless, to find loving homes for them.  It's always better when the kittens come with their mother.

Here are six of the mother cats we've taken in this year. Click or tap on a picture to learn more:

After a number of vet visits, medications to control respiratory and intestinal problems, and extra food each day, Gonzo the gray tabby has put on weight, and seems happier.  He will continue on two daily medicines for colitis/IBD.  Here are pictures of him about a month apart.

In the first picture, notice how his shoulder blades stick out, and his abdomen is sunken toward his spine; he was underweight.  He has gained weight in the second picture:

Gonzo is one of several special-needs cats at Thundering Paws. We depend on donations to provide care for them.  Please sponsor a special-needs cat!

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.
