My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Maxfund, Inc., Denver, CO, USA
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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
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.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
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.
