Hello to you! I am Isabella, and I am a very sweet lady with a big heart and a lot of love to share. Don't I have a lovely coat of mixed color fur? Spends some time gazing into my eyes and you will see that they are quite captivating as well. I do hope that you will choose to open your heart, and your home, to me for all the rest of my days.

I do want to be up front with you and let you know that I have some special needs, but nothing you need to be concerned over. You see, I have diabetes, just like lots of people do. I eat a special diet, which helps me a lot, and I also get simple insulin shots. The staff here will teach you just what to do and I handle it like a champ! If it's important to you, I am also declawed. My personality is quite docile and I am not concerned with the other cats around me. I will sit in your lap and enjoy your affection too. One of my favorite things is to receive ear scratches and chin rubs!

As you might imagine, I am a little sad here and it seems that I am often overlooked because of my special needs. However, I am available through MaxFund's foster program, which means that the shelter will support the cost of my medical care. See, even less for you to worry about!. If you are willing to go the "extra mile" for me, then I will repay you in kind with all of my love!

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!
