Facts about Banksy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
Is your heart big enough to welcome me, little Banksy? I am not sure why I was named after the famous street artist. May be it is because of my distinctive, fun loving personality.

My story started as a sad one. I was found on the highway as a little kitten. My tail was injured and had to be amputated. As you might imagine, my early life was pretty traumatized, but fast forward to the present. Now I am a happy and playful teenage kitten, who loves to snuggle with humans for petting. I also love to play with feather wands and laser toys. My sweet personality will put a smile on your face.

I do have some challenges. I am on a special diet and I have some problems with bowel control from my original injury. Please don't stop reading. I am available for foster or adoption. The shelter will take care of my special diet and any potential medical needs, if you choose to foster me. I need to live in a room with easy to clean floor, like a game room or laundry room. There may be a potential surgery to help me and I believe that my young life is as valuable as any other beings so I'm counting on someone out there to agree and to give me a chance at a happy, loved life outside of a shelter. Please let that person be you! Stop by to visit me and I promise to put a smile on your face.

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!
