Facts about Dixie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Hello, I'm Dixie. I am pleased to meet you, and I'm hoping that you might be able to find a place in your heart for a special cat. You see, I'm a young, pretty girl, but I've had a hard time of it so far in life, and I am in need of some TLC and patience. I am really hesitant about meeting new people from my cage here in the shelter. I am not shy, but I don't seem friendly when you first meet me. It could be the other cats in the room or the fact that I don't like the shelter, but I promise you, I do have a lot of potential. I am brave and outgoing, and I like to come out of my cage to explore. I will sniff your finger, and if you take the time to slowly introduce yourself, I'll touch your hand with my paws. I also like to play! I really enjoy batting at one of those toys that has a bug at the end of a wire - it's pretty fun. I also love catnip - I roll around in it and lick it - such a great treat!

Not much is known about my background, but it's probably safe to say that I haven't had it easy. I was found at the doorstep to MaxFund, so no one knows if I had a home at one time and was given up or if I was found as a stray or what. I could really use some stability and certainty, that's for sure!

I'm such a pretty girl, and I have soft fur and long white whiskers! I think that if someone gave me a chance to thrive, I'd make a wonderful companion. I would probably do best in a quiet home as an only child. I don't care for other cats at all, and I haven't been around children or dogs, but it would probably be best for me to be in a home without them. The best kinds of relationships are those you work for, and I promise that if you devote a little time to me, I'll pay you back in spades!

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!
