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 in the United States, many often 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!

Johnny, one of Bluebonnet's kittens

Isn't he beautiful? This is 5-month-old Johnny. He's one of Bluebonnet's kittens.

Photographing kittens can be a challenge, and when the fur is black, it requires more light to bring out the details. But don't let that keep you from adopting a kitty with black fur! Johnny is a delight.

Ready to adopt? See our Adopt page, and fill out online adoption application, or visit one of our weekend adoption events.

Good news! Dwight the kitten will be ready for adoption soon! Dwight is being fostered with his brother, Johnny. Both are very friendly. Dwight was purring so much at the veterinarian it was a challenge to examine him. 7/28/16 update: he's ready for adoption!

In other news, Alley (tortoiseshell) and her kittens Joanie (gray tabby) and Farnsworth (blue) are now available for adoption.  The pictures below were taken in April, and we'll post more recent ones as we get them.  Their sister Roberta (black and white) has a pending adoption.
