Facts about Mabel

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Long
Well, hello to you. My name is Mabel. I know, it’s kind of a funny name for a young girl like me, but I think it suits me. I am a lady in the old-fashioned sense of the word, so a name like Mabel fits me just fine. I am quite pleased that you are taking time to get to know me today and I do hope that we become the best of friends!

As I said, I am very sweet young lady that is trying to find her way in this crazy world. I came to MaxFund after being rescued by a woman who helps stray cats find homes. I think I’ve lived on the streets most of my life, so I am not completely comfortable inside yet, but I am working on it! I do appreciate having a warm, safe place to live and I know deep down that being around people is a good thing, I just have to get familiar with things a bit more before I am completely relaxed in my surroundings. Here at MaxFund, I often spend time in cubby holes and on perches, where I feel safe.

Make sure that you look all around for me when you come to visit. The best way to make friends with me is just to sit and talk to me for a bit while I get comfortable with you. Like I said, I’m an old fashioned girl. Once I have a home of my own I will blossom into a lovely lady for sure. It might help me to live with another friendly cat too, one that I can learn from and feel safe around. I hope that you see how special I am and that you are willing to invite me into your life. You will be so glad you did, I promise!!

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!
