Facts about Sweetie

  • Breed: Snowshoe
  • Color: Brown Or Chocolate (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Hello. My name is Sweetie and I am quite pleased to get to know you today. As you can see, I am a beautiful young lady and I am also friendly and affectionate to boot. Lucky for you, huh? I hope that you will be the right family for me and that you will take me out of here and give me a happy home forever and ever. I'm named Sweetie, so that has to tell you something about me!

As you’ve probably figured out, I have tested positive for FIV. It makes me sad that people sometimes overlook cats like me, but I can assure you that I am a healthy girl and you really don’t have to worry much about me being any less healthy than any other cat. Given the right environment and care, I will surely live to be an old lady. By the way, FIV is not transmittable to humans or dogs.

I came to MaxFund after being rescued from living a life on the streets. Given how friendly I am, it is likely that I had a home at some point, but I somehow ended up on my own. The person who rescued me said that I got along well with children and that I was friendly and affectionate with everyone I meet. See, I told you so!

I am not very picky, but I do really love wet food and I adore being paid attention to and cuddling. What more could you ask for? All I want in this whole, wide, world is a safe happy home where I can live a normal cat’s life, as well as a loving family to call my own. Please grant my wish and come down to adopt me today!

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!
