Tomlinson's Pound 4 Pound food drive, November 24 - December 24, 2017

Donate pet food to Thundering Paws at Tomlinson's stores, and have your donation doubled! Starting this week, as a Tomlinson’s customer, you are given the opportunity to purchase a bag of food for donation upon checkout. Ask for a ballot to mark the rescue to which you'd like the donation sent. (Please select Thundering Paws!)  Customer donations are matched by pet food suppliers, doubling the total amount--pound for pound.

Thanks for making Pound 4 Pound a success for Thundering Paws!

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!

Eefa the kitten's left hind leg is too badly damaged to regain function. Surgery to remove the leg will happen this week.

Carolina the cat will have surgery to repair a broken front paw.  Carolina and her kittens were rescued from flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. They and are now in a Thundering Paws foster home.

You can help by making an online donation for these surgeries.

Update 9/17/2017:  Eefa and Carolina are recovering from surgery.  Many thanks to all who have donated toward the cost of Eefa's surgery! Eefa will be at our adoption events.  Carolina now has a metal implant to hold the bone together. It turns out Carolina's operation was the more expensive. Please donate to help cover the cost. Thank you!


You may also donate for Hurricane Harvey kittens.  More on each family is on the Sponsor pages for Aria, Carolina, and Maryanne.  For other ways to give, see our Donate pageThank you, and thanks for all you do for animals.

Can you provide a foster home for a rescue cat (or dog)?  Many were displaced by the flooding of Hurricane Harvey.  They need homes until they are adopted.  If you can provide a foster home, please fill out a foster application.

Please print, fill out, and scan (or take pictures of each page) and return to us, by email to info@thunderingpaws.org.  Feel free to cut & paste from the application into an email or document editor (such as Microsoft Word or Apple Pages), if that makes it easier to fill out.

If you can't foster, please donate for the Hurricane Harvey kittens.  For other ways to give, see our Donate pageThank you, and thanks for all you do for animals.

We have two adoption events this weekend. The first is at Whole Pets in Dripping Springs on Saturday, 11am to 3pm. We plan to show the black cat Mr. Jones, and sisters Eefa and Ashling.  The tabby brothers Smokey and Nine, and some of Gracie's kittens, are also a possibility.

On Sunday at Petsmart in Bee Cave, 12noon to 4pm, meet kittens Paolo and Polly, Clara and Charles (Charlie Chaplin), Hanna and her kittens Idaho and Yukon Gold, and the cuddly tortoiseshell kitten Mazama. We hope to bring others.

Members of our adoption team will be at both events, to answer your questions, and to facilitate introductions.
