The Maxfund, Inc.
November 7, 2012

I'd been wanted to volunteer for a pet rescue organization for several years but couldn't find one that appreciated the work I did, took great care of the animals, had a friendly, inviting environment, and made finding good homes for the animals a priority. I was always dismayed at how many local SPCAs and Humane Society branches simply let anyone take any cat or dog they wanted within minutes of walking through the door. The animals were uphappy, rarely exercised or played with, and then handed off to the first person who looked at them. So I kept looking for a better shelter. Then I found MaxFund. Their no-kill mission fits my standards perfectly. They provide medical care for any animal that comes through their doors and has a great application process for potential adopters, requiring among other things, 3 non-family references. We want the dogs and cats in GOOD homes, not just any homes! And after only 6 weeks of volunteering, I adopted one of the many dogs that came though MaxFund's doors as a skinny, scared stray - now a happy, healthy, smiling boy! Now it's been over a year and I still love this organization! The world needs more shelters with a no-kill mission, run by staff and volunteers and kind and dedicated as MaxFund's.
