About Our Shelter:The MaxFund is a non-profit organization that was established in May of 1988 to provide medical care for injured pets with no known owners, and to seek out new homes for these animals once they have recovered. The MaxFund is a no-kill dog and cat shelter. MaxFund assists hundreds of people and animals each year by trying to make the correct match between owner and pet. MaxFund adopts our animals to Colorado residents only.
The MaxFund is a TRUE no-kill shelter. There is no pre-sorting of animals into "adoptable" and "non-adoptable" categories, discarding the so-called "unadoptable." The MaxFund takes every animal it has the space for. EVERY animal is kept until its owner is found or it is placed in a new adoptive home.

Our Adoption Process:For the month of August MaxFund has reduced adult cat adoptions fees to $40! Please take advantage of this special offer which includes spay or neuter, microchip, vaccination (Rabies not included), FIV & Felv tests, and one free exam! There is always someone waiting so come on down and look, someone will steal your heart!
There will be a mobile adoption event at Petco, 7490 S. University, centennial 80122 (University/Dry Creek) on August 21, 2010 . Please call Maxfund at (303) 595-4917 for information on adoption requirements.
Kittens (under 9 months): $70
Puppies and Younger Purebreds: $125
All applicants will be asked to submit the names and phone numbers of 3 personal references (relatives don't count), the name and phone number of your veterinarian if you have one, the name and phone number of your landlord (if applicable) and information about your current living situation. We also require that all immediate family members meet the animal prior to adoption to ensure compatibility. We would hate to adopt an animal into a family and later find out the dog doesn't like the kids or the husband doesn't like the animal, etc.
If you are interested in adopting a dog and have filled out an application, MaxFund will ask you to bring any currently owned dogs to the shelter for a “meet-and-greet” to ensure they can stand each other before they become a family. Because we examine adoption applications carefully and contact all references, same-day adoptions are extremely rare and should not be expected!
