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.Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Austin – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.Adoption fees for Austin Siamese Rescue, Inc. range from $100 to $175 and include such vet work as combo test, vaccinations, worming and flea control, and microchip. We spay or neuter all of our cats prior to placement and most of our kittens, depending on their size and readiness. Please note that not all of our cats go to our adoption site because we rotate out cats based on their need for adoption, so please contact us to arrange the day you want to visit a particular cat.You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Austin pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Austin is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Austin animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained. Many pet stores get their cats from large breeding operations called kitten mills. What's a kitten mill? It's basically a factory farm for pets. The cats are kept in small cages and forced to breed at unhealthy rates. Female cats in kitten mills are made to have several litters per year, which is extremely dangerous, unnatural, and cruel. Kitten mills also pay little attention to the health and temperament issues related to overbreeding, issues which often cause lifetime problems in the cats. In the kitten mill business, mass-producing animals for profit is the name of the game. Remember, adoption is the most humane option!
