Well, I have to tell you, I'm awfully glad you stopped by to see me. Right now, I'm going to try to convince you to come into the shelter and visit me in person and maybe, just maybe, fingers crossed, take me home. My name is Grady and I'm a really handsome, BIG boy with a lot of love to offer. I have big, squishable cheeks and beautiful gray, brown, and white fur. I'm still pretty young. I love to get and give affection and play! I love visiting with people, and I'll start kneading with my paws when you say hi to me. And if you sit down on the floor with me, I'll crawl into your lap. The volunteers here call me a lap cat extraordinaire, so I know I must be very special! In addition to getting and giving affection, I absolutely love playing with toys - especially strings and balls! I also enjoy the occasional treat or two, but who doesn't? I was brought into MaxFund by a woman who had rescued me from being a stray. I had showed up in her backyard, and she very kindly took me in. Unfortunately, she was unable to keep me, so she brought me to MaxFund. I'm hoping that my next home will be my forever home! I should let you know that I'm FIV positive, but that shouldn't deter you from meeting me. FIV is not transmittable to dogs or humans and I can only transmit to cats via a penetrating bite. With FIV, I can live a long, healthy life, but I just shouldn’t be with someone who smokes. Because I tested positive for FIV, I am also available for foster. I want a permanent home, but if you want to foster me, please ask the shelter about how to do that. Have I convinced you yet? I am super charming, loving, handsome, sweet, playful, and generally amazing, so what's not to love? I can't wait to meet you, and I promise that I'll make a good addition to your home. Please come visit me soon! I guarantee you'll start smiling as soon as you see 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!
