My wife and I were looking for a dog that would be a good mate for our other dog. We went to Maxfund and they were very helpful and supportive in the process. We found a great pet in our German Shepherd (Sofie). They even setup a meet and greet for our other dog to make sure they got along. The employees at Maxfund were outstanding. They did a very thorough check on us and called all of our references (which I think is great). I highly recommend this nonprofit to anyone in the area looking to adopt a pet.

I visited MaxFund in March of this year in search of a kitty. I had heard about their reputation and loved the fact that they are a non-kill shelter so I began my search there. I had never been in a shelter before so didn't know what to expect, but I was thrilled with what I found there! Their volunteers were amazing, the rooms were very clean and the cats seemed quite happy! I ended up falling in love with 2 cats that day and was beyond thrilled when I found out I had been approved! I also loved the fact that the volunteers were incredibly diligent in background checks, ensuring the animals are truly going to their forever home. MaxFund took amazing care of my furry babies before they found me. I will forever be grateful to them!

We've been adopting dogs (and a cat!) from the MaxFund since 2004. We so believe in MaxFund's no-kill mission that we are also volunteers and donors. It's so great to know that there is an organization in Denver that is truly committed to the no-kill philosophy, and is making it work. If you're looking for a dog or cat, please visit MaxFund. Volunteer, foster, and donate if you can, too.

The Maxfund is a wonderful organization. They have served our organization Colorado Service Dogs, Inc. in many ways, we have acquired wonderful dogs from them and they as well have done our vet work on a number of our dogs. We are very please with the staff and services they provide the public and refer quite a few people from the Colorado community to them for low cost vet care.

I have been a volunteer at MaxFund for six years. This is an amazing organization that truly cares about its animals. I have seen miracles happen here, such as the scared cat who you think will never get adopted that blossoms into a loving, social, highly adoptable cat. I have seen animals on the brink of death receive the care they need so they can live their lives and go home. Of course, all of this can be very expensive, so MaxFund really needs donations. Each animal is treated like part of the family, so the vet bills can be very high. But how can you say that an animal doesn't deserve the best care possible? You can't, and MaxFund doesn't.

I also have adopted my cats from MaxFund, and they have made my life so fulfilling. Most of them would have been euthanized at other shelters, but they got a chance at MaxFund and have brought me enormous joy and love! MaxFund is a miracle. It relies heavily on volunteers and donations.

My cat, Shorty, lived at MaxFund for four years. He was very shy and no adopters were interested. Thankfully, MaxFund is no-kill, so he didn't run out of time. When he had medical issues and his kidneys started to fail, MaxFund took care of him until I was lucky enough to bring him home. He gave me so much love and joy. He was the best cat ever, and he made the world a better place. He passed away last year but I am thankful to MaxFund for adopting him to me and for giving him time to find a home.

There needs to be more staff to handle administrative duties. Ideally, there would be a full-time foster coordinator rather than part-time staff or a volunteer. This takes money of course.

We have adopted four cats from MaxFund over the past 4 1/2 years. Sadly, two of them have passed away. Prior to having my daughter 2 1/2 years ago, I volunteered weekly with the cats. I received great training and continued training while volunteering. As a client, I appreciated that they give the animals excellent care and give the animals a home as long as they need one. They nurse them back to health and test the animals for temperament with other animals and children. I don't know that I would adopt a pet from any other organization knowing the good work that MaxFund does.

I've worked with the sick cats, worked on socializing feral cats and cats with FIV and FeLV. I've seen first hand how love and interaction makes a huge difference with these animals.

MaxFund is a fantastic organization. They cherish the animals and find the best homes for each one they serve. In 2009, we adopted our Sophie and Miss M. Sophie is a 12 year old mixed breed dog whose owner left her with a friend and never went back to claim her. She's all about love and adoration, and we couldn't ask for a better dog. Miss M (or as she prefers The Divine Miss M) is a 14 year old cat who showed her worth the first two days she was here by clearing out the mice from the basement. From that point on, she claimed her place as queen of the house. She, too, had been abandoned by her owners when they moved. Because both of the great animals were elderly when given up, they would not have lasted at a regular shelter. I am forever grateful that MaxFund kept them until we could adopt them.

Max Fund is the ultimate "shelter" because they never give up on any animal. All are treated equal in the eyes of this incredible organization and they live the vision I hold in my heart for all living things: That each deserves an equal chance to be loved and cared for. I will donate to Max Fund every time I have the opportunity because I so believe in what they are doing.

The MaxFund has been a part of my life since 1990. The reason I originally chose the MaxFund to volunteer at was because, not only do they help injured animals with no known owners, they are a “true no kill shelter”. The animals that come to the MaxFund stay there until they find their forever home. Most of the cat rooms allow the cats to roam free with lots of beds and windows for them to enjoy. There is a room for cats with aids and leukemia and a room for the ferals. The dogs have outside areas to run and play and are walked regularly. The MaxFund is all about the animals. Pam Kammerer

I would give them more room and help so they could rescue even more animals then they already do.

When I discovered the Maxfund in 1991, I immediately fell in love with the "no kill shelter for injured animals" concept in a world where so many healthy unwanted animals were euthanized daily. It's a small place with a hometown feel in the middle of a big city. The number one priority is the animals. That they are loved. walked, petted, held, spoiled, nurtured and most especially adopted. So that there is space for one more. Because there is always one more injured, hurt, scared, lost, homeless cat or dog. If you email or leave a voicemail and you never hear back, do not take it personally. The staff and volunteers are so busy caring for and loving these animals that they barely have time to get it all done. I no longer live in Denver but when I visit, I always stop by the Maxfund to hold a cat, pet a dog, smile at the constantly ringing phone and stuff some money in the donation box. I hope you do too. Because it's all for the animals.

Find a way to give them enough volunteers and money to continue this role in perpetuity
