They take excellent care of their animals and provide great care when helping you decide on your future family member. Great service and even more so that they are no kill.

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.

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 personally experienced the results of this organization in...

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have larger facilities

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.

I would wish that everyone would adopt from them
