A Fayetteville, NC 28304 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats.
1 - 5 of 5 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
Robeson and Cumberland counties in North Carolina.
In July of 2000 Rob and Katherine Gable moved to Parkton, North Carolina and were told by the seller of the property where they now reside that the thing we would like least about our new home would be the large number of cats and dogs abandoned in our area. She was right. From the very beginning dogs and cats have been abandoned. Rob and Katherine have taken pity on them and have been rescuing them ever since. From time to time they have received donations from people that wanted to help. However, mostly they have funded the rescues privately. Animals that were old enough were spayed/neutered and given immunizations. Animals were taken care of and gotten back to a healthy weight if malnourished. Animals were de-wormed, treated for skin problems, etc.
In 2007 Rob and Katherine applied for nonprofit status as Thundering Paws Pet Adoption Center, Inc. They obtained an employer identification number for tax purposes, incorporated with the North Carolina Department and were granted nonprofit status by the Internal Revenue Service under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The organization's purpose is to prevent the cruelty of animals through the rescue, care for and placement of rescued dogs and cats and to provide education on the care of dogs and cats.
Rescue operations are limited based upon the space available at any given time. In addition to keeping animals at the Gable's home, Thundering Paws utilizes volunteer foster families where dogs and cats are taken care of until being placed. Thundering Paws also assists people that contact them concerning stray animals or animals they can no longer care for. Help is given by assisting them in preparing and distributing posters, placing on-line postings and screening phone calls if they so desire.
Thundering Paws hopes to educate more people about the benefits of spaying and neutering their dogs and cats and about the basic care their pets require.
We are dedicated to the Prevention of Cruelty to animals through the rescue, care for and placement of rescued dogs and cats and to provide education on the care of dogs and cats.
