  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Hello! My name is Hop and I'm pleased that you've stopped by to hear my story. Did you know that 3 of every 4 orange cats are male? Well, we girls are enamored with that striking color, too. I think that I look quite feminine in my pretty ginger coat, don't you?

Coming to MaxFund was a very different experience for me. I grew up wild, you see, and didn't know any humans before I started living here. The other cats told me that people can be pretty nice, bringing us food, water, warm bedding, cat treats, and even toys. Now, snacking is not really my thing but boy, do I ever love to play! Once I get to know a person I'll follow at arm's length, hoping for a nice game with a feather wand. I'll bet that I can tire you out long before you do the same to me! I guess that sharing my space with people might not be so bad after all.

Though I was independent for most of my life I think that I'd like a family of my own now, as long as they understand that going slow is the best way to win my trust. I'd prefer to live in a quiet house without too much commotion. Other nice cats are OK, but small children and dogs may not realize that a gentle lady such as me enjoys her peace and quiet. I may never be a lap cat who will cuddle up with you the moment you sit down, but I enjoy human company and can happily while away the hours sitting near you in companionable silence. I don't ask for much, just a snug bed, good food, and a romp with a fun toy. Do you think that you're the kind of patient person who could love me? I sure hope so!

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

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!
