Howdy! My name is Matt Dillon and I am way cooler than the actor. I am a handsome male Airedale mix guy born in 2013. I weigh around 60 pounds.

I made my way to Denver all the way from a rural Colorado shelter in hopes of finding my happily ever after here at MaxFund! I will need a home that can provide me with a lot of structure. In my past, it seems I spent most of my life living outdoors so living in a home will be a whole new experience for me! The best way to describe me is as a big puppy! I will need to learn my manners and basic obedience. I would also need to get into a house breaking routine at home as well. I'm looking for a patient home that will give me the time I need to adjust to a new routine. I am very intelligent so with some extra patience and love I will not disappoint! I have the sweetest demeanor which you can clearly see in my teddy bear face! I absolutely adore human attention! I have no problem cozying up to people and getting in some good pets and snuggles. I would be happiest as the only animal in my forever home. That way I can soak up all your love to myself!

I also am an active guy who would benefit from being in an active home! It would be a blast if you took me along for some fun mountain adventures! Hikes, runs, jogs- those all sound like a good time to me!

So, what do you think? Are you looking for a friendly soul to join your family forever? I just might be your guy! Ask the front desk to meet me today and we can find out!

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!
