  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Hi there. Are you interested in me?? Wow! I’m so happy to hear that! My name is Selena, which means “moon” in Greek. Like the moon, I am a serene beauty, but sometimes I feel distant from those around me. I am trying my very best to fit in here and to adapt to life at the shelter, but what I really want is a safe, calm home to call my own. Can you be my new family?

I came to MaxFund after being found on the streets, where I was living with my newborn kittens. Luckily the man that found was a good samaritan and brought me here for a chance at a better life. I am thankful for the help, but it is hard for me here at the shelter. I am not quite used to living in a room so close to other cats and close contact with people is a bit new to me as well. I am quickly learning that people want to help me and I know that my new family will love me so much that I will be a cuddling, lovable cat in no time. Until then, please go slow with me but do take the time to get to know me. I like when people sit near me and talk to me and I’m making progress with people giving me affection to. I do just fine with other cats, though I do like to have my own space. One way you can get to know me better is by just sitting with me and maybe trying to play with me a bit. I would love to just hear your voice and know that you are there for me.

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!
