Hi I'm J.J. Ok truth be known, I am actually named J.J. Spanky! Don't laugh. It's not my fault. The staff here just calls me J.J., though, so you can too. I'm a super cool cat so whatever you call me, I hope you'll come meet me right away. By the way, I am much more handsome in person. This picture makes me look a little goofy when I am truly a gorgeous cat. I think I was just more interested in getting love than having my photo taken.

I was brought to the MaxFund because of my person's health. My person originally rescued me from a family who was moving, and she had me 3.5 years. But then she had to give me up. Boy, I hope this time, my home is forever! According to my person, I like to come to you and sit in your lap or on your chest for pets. Doesn't that sound relaxing and wonderful--for both of us! I am a mellow cat and I enjoy string toys. I like small objects to push around and I enjoy sleeping in the bed with you. She said I am good with cats and dogs.

One thing you need to know about me is that I have a heart murmur. So I need to have a stable home where I won't get scared easily or run the risk of having a heart attack. Perhaps a single person or mellow couple would be best. Or maybe a retired person. I promise I am a super-sweet cat who just wants love and affection. I enjoy people. I hope you will give me a chance to make your dreams come true by showering you with love and being your friend. I am a young cat that has to live in a cage until I find a home. Please rescue me from that.

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!
