Hi, I'm Sweetpea. Yep, I think my name says it all. Actually, maybe my name should be Survivor. I came to MaxFund from another shelter. My time was up there, so thankfully MaxFund rescued me. Then I got adopted. But I got out of the house and was in an area known to be stalked by foxes and coyotes. For many days, I was outside with a bell on my collar. Thankfully, I didn't get captured by a coyote or fox and volunteers from the MaxFund found me. I am glad to be safe and warm with plenty of food. But now I want to find a home where I'll be safe, loved and comfortable.

I need a home with a patient person. I'm a bit nervous around people and may not let you pet me . I usually just sit on my spot looking very regal and beautiful. I am curious about people but not yet ready to be handled by them. I think in a loving home, I will blossom.

You can tell who I am (there are many long-haired black cats here) by my rhinestone collar. Nope, I'm not a cowgirl with a rhinestone necklace. I'm just a sweet girl looking for a loving home. There is another long-haired black cat named Baxter. He and I like each other and some say we are "velcroed" together. We don't have to be adopted together, but if you want two gorgeous black cats, we're already a pair. So how about it? Ready to give this girl a chance? I 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!
