Thundering Paws Animal Sanctuary

JasmineJasmine

Domestic Shorthair, female, 4 years old

Hi, I’m Jasmine. I’m a dainty little package with a lot of personality and a sweet nature.  I love to snuggle in a spare lap and I like to be brushed and petted. I’m smart and would be a good candidate for learning tricks.  I’ve lived with a couple of small dogs and we pretty much ignore each other and I was fine with that.  I should probably be an only cat because sometimes I can be a bit of a bully.

StretchStretch

Domestic Shorthair, male, 10 months old

Because my sisters, brothers and I were homeless without regular meals and human love, I admit I’m a little shy at first. But now I’ve learned how to purr like a little engine and stretch my arms out towards you when you walk in the room. I like other cats when they play with me and I’m learning about the dog that lives at my foster home. He seems nice enough. I’d do well in a home with adults or with a family with older kids.

TootsieTootsie

Domestic Shorthair, female, 10 months old

Hi, I’m Tootsie. I’m a sweet, gentle girl who is a little shy with people. I’m still learning to trust but once I’m on your lap I will purr for you and enjoy being petted. I love snoozing in a hammock and watching through the window as birds come to the feeder. I’ll do best in a fairly quiet home, and I wouldn’t mind having another kitty to play with. If you’re looking for a pair of kittens, please consider me and one of my siblings.

TiggerTigger

Domestic Shorthair, male, 1 year 9 months old

Hi, I’m Tigger and I’m a really nice guy. I’m friendly and affectionate and when my foster mom picks me up I like to be kissed on the cheek. I also love to be brushed, especially around my cheeks and chin. I’m only about a year old but I’ve had a rough life. I hung around one of my foster mom’s feral colonies for a while until she realized I wasn’t wild. I’m learning to play which is something I couldn’t do before I had a foster home. I love to find a ray of sun and have a good snooze.

CassidyCassidy

Retriever Mix, female, 11 months old

Hello! My name is Cassidy and I so want a forever home! I had a rough start, but now that I have a foster family I hope the rest of my life will be great! At first, I may seem a little shy, but if you will show me love, I’ll warm up to you. I love to run and jog and play outside but am having to limit my exercise right now. My dog doctor says I have a condition called hypertrophic osteodystrophy, (HOD). This is a temporary condition which should go away when my bones stop growing so fast, probably in two years or less. I get along fine with other dogs but I do chase cats.

Austin Animal Center

Silky Coco & CharlieSilky Coco & Charlie (IDs A702187 & A702186)

Neutered male & spayed female, 4 years old

These two were found together in the streets of East Austin. They are clearly attached to one another and could possibly be siblings. We would like to find them a new home that will keep these 2 together and safe. That means indoor living!

SaraSara (ID A701979)

Labrador mix, female, 10 years old

 

Our hearts ache for Sara, surrendered at 10 years old from the only home she’s ever known had due to the owner’s failing health. She has pretty, light colored soulful eyes that crave human companionship. She’s good with calm dogs, no cats please, is very housebroken and does well with children. She’s just at the 50lb mark, fit and healthy and will work well in any loving indoor home environment.

Cookie & BlueCookie & Blue (IDs A697187 & A697188)

Pit Bull mixes, Spayed female & Neutered Male

Cookie is actually the younger of these two, she is 4 years old and Blue is 6 years old. They are very bonded together and very well behaved together! Both are housetrained and love to go out for strolls. They are accustomed to living indoors and have lived with children.

AAC AthenaAthena (ID A702614)

Anatolian  Shepherd mix, female, 2 years old

Great on leash, checks in frequently, loves to be petted. These are just a few words that describe beautiful Athena was all skin and bones when she 1st arrived. Now with AAC TLC she is looking great! Quiet and timid at times she should have a patient owner with experience around dogs. Athena loves to come indoors and lay by my desk, she would love to live indoors with you!

SugarSugar (ID A704914)

Tabby, female, 9 weeks old

Sugar is one example of the hundreds of kittens that we have arriving daily! We are in full swing of kitten season and needs foster and adopters! Indoor living is a must for any pet this young.

THH AmosAmos

Terrier/Mix, male, 1 year old

Hi, my name’s Amos! I’m a happy, carefree, sweeter-than-a-cookie pup. My life wasn’t so great before coming here but you wouldn’t know it when you meet me! I love my toys and the yummy treats people give me. I have dog friends here too and we have so much fun! I’m a bit of a wall-flower, I’m still getting used to living in People World. Will you be the one to help me gain confidence and be the best pup I can be?

THH PanchoPancho

Retriever, Labrador/Catahoula Leopard dog, male, 11 months old

Meet Pancho! Pancho is a lovable pup that is down on his luck in the love department. What 11 month old doesn’t deserve a family of his own! He is very playful and enjoys the great outdoors. He would make a great addition to any family and lifestyle!

Austin Pets Alive!

APA slateSlate

Pit Bull Terrier/Lacy, male, 2 years, 1 month old

Slate came to the shelter as a stray, and is looking for a home where he can learn the ins and outs of being a family dog. Slate is a young dog who has a fair amount of energy. He loves his daily walks, and isn’t opposed to a run. This boy loves to swim, and as he’s very athletic, and might even be up for some agility training. While Slate settles into a home, it would be best for him to be the only dog in the house. His size and enthusiasm might be too much for smaller children, but a home with older kids could be good for him.

APA wilsonWilson

Labrador Retriever, male, 2 years, 6 months old

Wilson once was hard at work as a drug detection dog. Today, he still loves to find hidden things – tennis balls and squeaky toys – because those are a lot more fun.  This exuberant, agile boy is something of a wild child who loves to climb up stairs and rocks to find hidden treasures. Wilson is a people lover who tries to greet everyone he sees with great enthusiasm and wants to be their snuggle buddy. Other dogs and cats, not so much. He wants to be the only pet in a home to get all the attention.

APA juneauJuneau

Saint Bernard, female, 11 years old

Juneau is an affectionate, easy-going dog who loves attention. Even though she’s a senior, she still wants to play and be youthful. She has a very motherly demeanor and is sweet towards kids and other dogs.  Juneau is looking for a relaxed, low-key forever home with the patience and compassion for an older, large breed. She’s housetrained, but has occasional incontinence at night. This big girl does have hip dysplasia and it should be noted that she has tested positive for heartworms. Due to her age, though, our vets do not recommend she is treated for them as it will be too hard on her body.

APA candyCandy

Domestic Shorthair, female, 4 years, 9 months old

Candy is relaxed and affectionate around children and other cats! She is afraid of dogs, however. Otherwise, she is confident, meowing at you in the kitchen and following you around the house – hoping to sit on you! Candy is respectful and gentle when she plays with everyone – you, kids, and other cats. Candy is affectionate and quiet, enjoying when you brush her coat and pick her up and hold her.

APA luluLulu

Domestic Medium Hair, female, 15 years, 5 months old

Lulu is a beautiful and quiet introvert who keeps to herself and avoids trouble. She is basically a feral housecat, preferring to be left alone in her own space in her foster home rather than cuddled or handled in any way; though after many months, she thinks her foster mom is okay and will let her touch her now and then. Lulu is a senior cat, doesn’t have any teeth, has early kidney disease, and is positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. The ideal home for Lulu is with cat-experienced people who would respect her space and boundaries, and who would love her and ensure she had the care she needed.
