Facts about Max

  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9891
  • Hair: Unknown

What a handsome fluffy size boy! This guy was in a home for 8 years, since he was a tiny kitten. He was recently returned to our care with diabetes. He is such a fun lug, very interactive and expressive. Because we know diabetes might be a deterrent to finding him a new family, HELP Humane is willing to cover the costs of the diabetic supplies. He is super food motivated (we are sure you just cant believe that! :-) so it is super easy to administer his insulin. Meet Big Ole Max! This hunk went out on adoption as a kitten, he is now 10 years old. He was returned to us a couple years ago because he had become diabetic and was not using the litterbox and he was put outside , he had no claws, we asked the adopters to please bring him back, they did and we are glad to help this boy.

Max is so sweet and a gentle giant, well except when you try to have him do something he doesn't particularly want to do at that time But that's ok, he just grumbles and aren't all cats pretty much like this. They don't have owners, they have staff We love big ole Max and he will be able to live out his life with us unless some wonderful special person comes along to give this wonderful special cat a family. We continue to hope!If you are unable to give this handsome funny cat a home, please spread the word to try and get him a family. Max, boy, born in 2005.

About HELP Humane

About Our Shelter...

Who We Are:


HELP Humane: HELP Humane Inc. is a non-profit organization currently run by a small group of animal lovers in Cass County, MO (just south of Kansas City).


All HELP animals are treated by veterinarians receive age appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, spayed/neutered and those incoming after Oct 2005, have been micro chipped. Cats have been Feluk/FIV tested and are negative unless otherwise stated. Dogs have been heartworm tested and are on heartworm preventative.


HELP now has a no-kill shelter. HELP does not take in any owner relinquished animals. HELP rescues stray dogs and cats from the streets. We have been told by many adopters that the reason they liked adopting form us is because we have a happy place and all the cats are the friendliest ones they had ever met. HELP feels that ALL animal’s are worth saving. We have many FIV and FeLV+ cats in our care. They will live with us until they end their life’s journey or find a permanent home.


Currently we are in a financial crisis and desperately need more funding to continue our mission. We are also currently in need of foster homes. The more foster homes we have, the more pets we can help. We also need more volunteers and a grant writer. Of course donations of money and/or pet supplies are most helpful.


Our regular monthly meetings are at 7:00pm, the 1st Tuesday of each month. At our Shelter at 17122 Bel Ray Place, Belton, MO 64012.
