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!

Thanks to Mother's Cafe, for hosting another day for Thundering Paws recently.  And thanks to all who attended!  Here are some of the rescue kitties you are supporting:

Mohawk  Serene   Bella   Jones

Mohawk, Serene, Bella and Mr Jones are are all adoptable.  Mohawk is a cuddly sweetheart, black with golden eyes and a short tail, rescued in Dripping Springs, TX. She's about 4 year old.  Blue-and-white Serene was a homeless cat in southwest Austin. He's about 3 to 4 years old, friendly and seems to get along OK with other cats.  Bella, brown tabby with white, about 10 years old, was abandoned in Oak Hill; she does not seem to like other cats.  Mr Jones, a black kitty about two-and-a-half years old, mellow and friendly, was rescued along the Texas coast.  To meet any of them, please fill out our adoption form.


Marla is a rescue kitty in east Texas.  Learn more about her here.

Bandit, and adoptable young kitty Bandit P

Bandit, shown on the left, is the son of mother cat Kathy, and like his mother, has tested positive for the cat virus FIV. Cats with FIV can live long, happy lives. They just need to be monitored for infections and dental issues. If they’re well cared for, they can be healthy, happy, wonderful pets. 

Bandit P, the son of Petra, has dark classic-tabby markings.  His forehead is not as dark, at least in these pictures.

Look for both "Bandits" at our adoption events, along with Kathy, and Petra's other sons Tucker P and Smalls, and others.  To arrange a meeting with any of them, fill out our adoption form.  Thank you!
