Hello friends! My name is Kemah! I'm a handsome male Chihuahua mix born in 2014! I currently weigh about 10 pounds.

I came here to MaxFund as a stray. Can you believe a precious boy like me was found out in the streets wandering around?! Luckily, a friendly gentleman found me and brought me in. I'm looking forward to a fresh new start and am currently on the hunt looking for my forever home. I'm a very friendly and lively boy that is enthusiastic about life! I always enjoy the company of my humans and tend to make friends with everyone I meet. I also love to jump into laps and snuggle up for cuddles. Don't be surprised if I sneak in a few kisses too! In terms of my activity level, I'm low key. I would be happy to join you for leisurely walks around the neighborhood.

I've been doing well with dogs here at the shelter. I love my playgroup time! However, I'd still like to meet any potential fur siblings to make sure we can coincide.

Don't I sound like the perfect catch? What are you waiting for? Ask the front desk to meet me today! I just know you'll fall in love with my charming personality when we meet.

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!
