Facts about 10th Avenue

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
Hello. My name is 10th Avenue and my story is a sad one. I was found as an injured stray cat, probably on 10th Avenue, hence the name. Most of my wounds have healed, but I am still very scared of humans. While I probably will never be a lap cat, I'm sure that with time and patience one day I will be braver with humans. I am grateful for the tasty food that they give me and when they look into my eyes I sense a connection there. Perhaps people are OK. That's what some of the other cats tell me.

You should know that I have tested FIV positive, but please do not let that scare you. FIV positive cats tend to live good quality, long lives. The virus spreads via penetrating bite wounds between cats only. It has no effect on humans, no effect on dogs, no effect on any non-feline species. Just because I carry the virus does not mean that I am not a healthy cat.

Ideally I need a quiet, patient home without other cats or with a friendly FIV positive cat. For me to be a good addition to your family, you will need to patient with me early on, offering me the opportunity to slowly integrate into your home. Once I do, I know that we'll be great companions and I look forward to you saving me and showing me how great life with people can be. Will you stop by for a quiet, gentle visit and hopefully give me a chance to blossom in your home?

About MaxFund No-Kill Animal Shelter

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...

Adoption fees:

Cats: $25
Kittens (under 12 months): $75
Dogs: $125
Puppies (under 6 months) $200
Dogs over 8 years: $75

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. You can print out an application on our website at maxfund.org.

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!
