Hi there! I’m Tanisha. For the record, my name is pronounced “Tan-EE-sha.” I’m gorgeous—just like my name. Isn’t it fun to say? I’m so pretty that some folks at MaxFund think I have some Persian or Siamese in me. I have a glorious black coat that would be great for brushing. Did you know that in Scotland black cats are believed to bring prosperity? Anyway, I sure would look good lounging around your home.

I came to MaxFund in 2012, after I was found as a stray. I got along well with my siblings and love to cozy up to other MaxFund kitties in the cat tower cubbies and in the sunshine. I bet I’d be great with another cat. I was born in 2011 so I still have a lot of playful energy and a long life ahead of me. I’m a bit shy, but at least we have a lot of time to get to know each other! Because I was a stray, I don’t really know what all these people around here are up to. Are they nice? Will they like me? Are humans good friends? I’ve been told that they are, but I’d love to get to know some really well. That’s probably why I like to buddy up with these other kitties.

I may play hard to get—which is adorable, right?—but once we get to know each other I’ll be the best friend you’ve ever had! Try some treats, bits of cat food, toys, and kind words so that I learn to trust you. In fact, I bet we’ll fall in love with each other! I’m a great investment and will be very loyal once I get to my forever home. I can’t wait to meet you!

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!
