Review for The Maxfund, Inc., Denver, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways. I have hand feed starving orphaned kittens, personally adopted animals, given them money, and volunteered numerous hours to create awareness of their mission and raise funds.

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

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

Role:  Volunteer & Volunteer publicity, dogwalker, cat petter, events, TV appearances.
