Well hey there, new friend! My name is Jell-o and I am a fabulous female Lab mix born in 2007. I weigh around 103 pounds but I'm working on lowering that number!

Before I was brought to MaxFund, I was found lying down in the middle of the street all by myself. Luckily, a very kind human rushed to my aid and helped me to safety! I bet you're wondering what the heck I was doing taking a rest in such a dangerous location! Well, the thing is, I didn't mean to stop there.. You see, I have a lot of extra weight on my body... In fact, I have so much extra weight, it makes getting up very difficult! So, I wasn't really just stopping for a rest, I was actually just stuck there! I am so glad that I made my way here because I'm on track to a much healthier lifestyle! No more getting stuck for this girl! Since I've made my way here, I've been determined to get my dream beach body! I've made lots of awesome progress with the assistance of my friends at MaxFund. I'm currently on a special diet and have been going on lots of walks! You'll be impressed to know I've already lost 20 pounds! I'm killing it! I feel so pretty with my new waistline! It will be important for me to go home with someone committed to helping me stay on a healthy routine.

Although it seems I have a rough past, I don't let that stop me from being the sweetest lady around! I am friendly with all the humans I encounter. I love my peeps so much, that my eyes light up whenever they enter a room! I adore being showered with love and attention and hope I will be supplied with tons of pets and snuggles in my new forever home. While I have lots of love for humans, I'm not sure I've met any fur friends yet. However, I have such a sweet disposition, I imagine I would love living with other animals! If you have any in the home, I'd love to meet them to see if we could be good pals!

Well, what do you think?! Do you have room in your heart for a sweet gal like myself? 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!
