Thundering Paws

WHAT IS THE NAME OF YOUR ORGANIZATION, WHO'S IN CHARGE, AND HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN OPERATIONAL?  WHEN, HOW, AND WHY WAS YOUR ORGANIZATION FOUNDED?
 
Central Texas Animal Sanctuary dba Thundering Paws Animal Sanctuary—The reason for the long name is so we can umbrella other groups in the area so they can accept donations while obtaining their 501(c)(3) paperwork from the IRS. I, Anne Zabolio, am the Executive Director.  We incorporated July 27, 2001.
 
I had moved into a new (to me) home in the Dripping Springs area, quit my job, and finished my B.A.  I had rescued cats, and a few dogs, with Animal Trustees of Austin when I lived in the city, and still had some unadopted kitties.  My friends and I had long talked of an animal sanctuary.
