Wet Nose Wednesday

Check back every Wednesday for our next bundle of furry joy from
MaxFund that needs a loving home.

Meet our furry friends…

Scout | 7.10.19

Hi! I’m Scout and I’m a female, Blue Heeler/Australian Cattle Dog and Hound mix that was born November 2016 and weigh about 60lbs. I am an extremely lovable girl towards the people at the MaxFund and enjoy every minute I get to spend with them. I am also very intelligent and obedient! I know simple commands and can learn a heck of a lot more if given some more training. I was surrendered to the MaxFund due to not getting along with my Chihuahua siblings. I do get along great with dogs my size or bigger and love playtime with them! Sorry, but kitty cats will be a no can do for me as well. I can come off as timid towards children but would love to meet everyone in the home anyway to see how we all get along. Bring your fur babies too! I’m crate trained, enjoy car rides, and don’t mind being left home alone. I am housebroken but can have some accidents due to urinary incontinence from being spayed at an early age. Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver CO 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more

Daphne | 7.3.19

Hello, I’m Daphne, a black long haired, declawed girl with beautiful yellow eyes, born in 2008. 🦋 I had a loving owner, who unfortunately became disabled and could no longer care for me. I thought my life was all laid out, but now I find myself in a shelter. I’ve been pretty scared since I got here (I’ve never been in a cage before) so I’m having trouble trusting. I’m getting better though, and I’m starting to realize the people here just want to help me. 🦋 I don’t get much attention from potential adopters. They go for the more outgoing cats. But, I really do have a lot to offer, if given a chance. I enjoy getting treats, and that is probably the best way to break the ice with me. 🦋 Though I’m still very playful, I think I’d like a calm home. I need someone who will understand my past and be patient with me as I adapt to this new life. They say black cats are unlucky, but I’m hoping this black cat will be lucky enough to find a second loving home, this one forever. 🦋 Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver CO 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more

Espo | 6.26.19

Hi there! I’m Espo. I am a shepherd mix that’s about 8 years old. Do you like my fluffy red fur?I was brought to the MaxFund after my previous owners brought me and my buddy Frazier to a training facility, and never came back to get us. I am a big guy – but really, I’m a gentle giant! I’ve made the coveted “easy walker” list and the volunteers say I am their favorite to take a walk with. Actually, I should say trot! I have the most adorable trot in the world, which is only cuter when I proudly trot around with a toy in my mouth.I am a lovable guy that is looking for his forever home. Since I came in with my buddy Frazier, I am good with other dogs. I have been in play groups but I’m not too rambunctious and prefer to keep to myself – and did I mention, trot around with my toys? But please bring any other dogs in the home to meet me! So what do you think? Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver CO 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more

Precious Catalina | 6.19.19

My name is Precious Catalina, and I am a pure white female with stunning green eyes, born in 2011. I was brought to MaxFund over a year ago when my human went into assisted living. After years of being together, I didn’t understand why I came to be in a shelter. Nothing in my life up to that point could have prepared me for this. The people here are very nice and take good care of me, so I’m not complaining, but it sure is different from a loving home. Some cats do okay in a shelter, and they seek out and enjoy the attention of visitors. Unfortunately, I find that I just can’t be myself here. It takes me awhile to warm up to people. I can’t do it in the seconds people spend at my cage. Plus, I’m in a bottom cage, so I’m not sure anyone can even see me. There must be some reason I’ve been here so long without any interest. Given the right amount of time, attention, and freedom, I will be the most adoring, loving, and affectionate cat you’ll ever know. I like treats and LOVE pets, rubs, and scratches! I can only hope that someone will look into my green eyes, and recognize what a special companion I can be. Please come meet me! Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver CO 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more

Frank | 6.12.19

Hi! I’m Frank. I’m an 8 year old American Bulldog mix with a sweet face that will surely melt your heart. I ended up at MaxFund after my previous shelter was closed due to a number of failed inspections. Because of that, not a whole lot is known about my past! My volunteer friends will tell you, though, I am a real love bug. I’ve made the coveted “easy walker” list, so everyone wants to walk me and spend time with me! I’m a mellow dude that loves people, but also loves minding my own business on a stroll around the neighborhood. If there are kiddos, other dogs, or other people in the household, please bring them by when you come meet me! Hope to see you soon. Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver CO 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more

Hercules | 6.5.19

I have a very heroic name, considering my relatively small stature and my tendency to be a bit fearful. However, I am brave at heart and I really want to befriend people. I often greet the human visitors to my room with a welcoming meow. I need to tell you about my meow—it’s very loud. In fact, my previous owners brought me to MaxFund because they were having a baby and thought I’d be too loud around the baby. I wish I could learn to have a quieter voice, but it’s not likely. 🐾 Once comfortable, I love to play with laser lights, wand toys, toy mice and little crinkly balls. I also enjoy an occasional cat treat. I used to live with other cats, but I may be happier as an only cat. Ideally I need a home without little kids. The less stressful the environment, the better! 🐾 Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver CO 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more

Grey | 5.29.19

Hi there! I’m Grey. I’m a beautiful, 3 year old female Rottweiler mix. I made my way to MaxFund after my shelter closed down due to a number of failed inspections. But I’m not sad – in fact I feel lucky to be here! I am a volunteer favorite because I have the best smile and am an easy pup to take a nice stroll with. I turn into all wiggles when I know it’s my turn to go for a walk. I know basic commands, but would love to learn more with you! I am still a young girl with lots of love to give & a huge potential to grow into a perfect canine citizen. If you want to learn more about me, or meet me in person, come by the shelter today! I am sure you will find me irresistible to love, too. Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver CO 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more

Toffee the Cat | 5.22.19

Hi, I’m Toffee! When the volunteers give me treats, I get very excited! I’ve been known to jump off my shelf and follow them around to see if I can charm them out of more! Some torties have a reputation for having a feisty attitude, but that’s not the case with me. Another thing you’ll notice about me is that I am very photogenic, and don’t mind having my picture taken. Want a cute addition to your selfies? I’m your girl! Want a pretty cat with a pleasant personality to be a loving companion? I’m your girl. 🌼 Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver CO 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more

Stillwater | 5.15.19

My name is Stillwater and I am an adorable, 1-year-old boy. I found myself at the MaxFund after taking a long car ride from a high kill shelter in Oklahoma. I am excited to grow up in and explore Colorado with a loving forever home. I’m a super curious boy that gets into things I’m not supposed to. I have ingested items that have gotten me sick and have ended in multiple surgeries to get these items out of my belly. It’s a puppy thing that has stuck with me and I will need some good training to break me out of this bad habit. I love to run and play with dogs of all ages and sizes. I’m good with children too! If you do have four-legged babies in the home or other humans, I would love to meet them! I am house broken, and crate trained. It would actually be suggested that I be kept in a crate while you’re out and about. Don’t worry, I won’t mind it as long as you’re not gone for too long. Indestructible Kongs with peanut butter will keep me busy and happy. Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver CO 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more

Stacy | 5.8.19

I had a home where I was happy, until my family got a new dog. We didn’t get along, so they relinquished me to MaxFund. I’ve been pretty sad, but the nice people here are giving me plenty of attention, and I am starting to warm up to them. But, to be honest, I’m not adjusting to the shelter as well as they’d like, and they are worried about me. I’m still a young girl, and love to play. My favorite game is probably chasing the laser dot. I just can’t resist it! I also love treats, and soft and gentle pets. I spend a lot of my day in a cardboard box, where I feel comfortable and safe. I get along with the calm, polite cats here, and I avoid the aggressive ones. If you come to meet me (and I hope you do!) you’ll have to seek me out. I’m not as outgoing as some of the other cats, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want a home! I dream every day that someone will come along who thinks I’m special. I promise I’ll be the best friend you ever had. Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver CO 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more

Jelly Bean | 5.1.19

Hello! I’m Jelly Bean and I’m as sweet as one too! I’m a very optimistic 6-year-old, female with a gorgeous cream and white coat. I was surrendered to a Pueblo shelter that actually ended up shutting down due to a number of failed inspections. After that, the MaxFund took me into their arms along with 54 other dogs and 25 cats. You may have noticed that the side of my head is a bit misshaped. Sadly, I was abused and hit by a bat. Despite my very harsh past, I am the happiest lady you will meet. I have an amazing attitude and always keep a huge smile on my face. I’ve been through quite the journey and cannot wait for you to join me and be my forever companion. I’m very playful and a great walker. I’m a relaxed girl that promises to not give you a hard time. All I’m asking for is for lots and lots of love! What do you think? Think we’ll make a good fit? Me too! Please come on by and let’s spend some time together! Shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver Co 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more.

Michonne the Cat | 4.24.19

I never imagined when I arrived at MaxFund, that I would still be here over two years later. But, this is the fate of cats who are shy and don’t engage with potential adopters like the friendlier cats. The good news is that I have been making great progress lately! After a long time in a cage, I am now free to roam around my room. The volunteers have been working hard with me and seeing results, as I now allow pets and more attention. I especially love treats. Like most of my fellow shy cats, my true personality has not come out in the shelter, but I know in my own home, I would blossom into the truly wonderful cat that I am. Let’s see, what would my dream home look like? I’d like to live with someone patient and loving, who would give me the time I need to come out of my shell. A sunny window I could sit in and watch the birds would be extra nice! If I sound like your forever kitty, I hope you’ll come and seek me out. Shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver Co 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more.

Nadia | 4.17.19

Hi there! I’m Nadia and I’m a 6-year-old girl that weighs approximately 50lbs. I was transferred to the MaxFund from New Mexico in hopes of finding a forever home. I’m a really happy, silly and sweet pup. You will always find me with a smile on my face. I’m super friendly and love greeting just about everyone. I’m also well-behaved that’s potty trained and crate trained. I’m a strong walker so the harness is great for me. Apart from loving humans, I love other dogs too! Sorry, but kitties are a no go for me. I’m proud to say that I’m a favorite among the volunteers! I came in with an old fracture that healed by itself. Because it did not heal correctly, I walk with a limp. This tends to give me pain, so I am on medication at the moment and will very likely be on medication for the rest of my life. I’m an optimistic pup that wants to join life to the fullest with a loving human by my side. Spend some time with me and you’ll see how much love I have to give! Shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver Co 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more.

Allspice | 4.10.19

Hello, I’m Allspice, a quiet senior lady, born in 2006. I’ve been told that I’m quite pretty, with my mostly white fur adorned with calico patches of gray, brown and orange–which is what the spice I’m named after smells like! I was pretty timid when I first arrived, but I now love the attention of the volunteers. Ear scratches are definitely my favorite. They’ll even make me purr! I’ve started opening up enough to play, and have revealed my kitten side! I’m looking for a quiet, loving forever home where I can feel confident again. I know that with the right amount of love (just like the right amount of spice) I’ll bring you warmth and love for all of my life. If you rescue me, I’ll rescue you right back! I am also eligible to be fostered! Shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver Co 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more.

Olga | 4.3.19

I’m Olga and I came to the MaxFund as a stray. I’m a beautiful, tan doll at just 3-years-old and I weigh 7lbs. It’s hard to say what a stray like me has been through. I can come off timid and need humans that are meeting me to go slow with me. But not to worry, I come out of my shell pretty fast. I can tell you that I’m used to hanging out with other dogs. So, if you’re looking for a little sister for your own fur baby, I’m all up for it! I do ask that you bring in any dogs living in the home to make sure everyone gets along. I don’t mind children either! As long as they’re gentle with me, there should be no problem. I’m quite the snuggle bug and adore being loved on. Shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver Co 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more.

Weeble and Wobble | 3.27.19

Meet Special Kittens, Weeble and Wobble! MaxFund is committed to giving every dog and cat a chance at the best life they can have. In the case of these two kittens, born with Cerebellar Hypoplasia, that means providing physical therapy to help them reach their highest level of functioning. Dr Erin Davezac and Sonya Bailgildin created the body support system you see in the photos. Staff and volunteers are receiving training to assist with their physical therapy. Its important to understand that these kittens are not in pain. They can live a long life! Shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver Co 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more.

Bert | 3.20.19

My name is Bert, and I am a very handsome shepherd mix with a midnight black coat, big brown eyes a floppy quirky ear and a smile that really stands out. I love the outdoors. I can be reserved when you first meet me but I can tell you once I get to know you I will give you kisses and tail wags. I am looking for a forever or foster home. Please come meet me, take me for a walk and see if you think we can be lifelong companions.  Shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver Co 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more.

 

Precious Catalina | 3.13.19

My name is Precious Catalina, and I am a pure white female with stunning green eyes, born in 2011. I was brought to MaxFund in May 2018 when my human went to assisted living. After years of being together, I didn’t understand why I came to be in a shelter. Nothing in my life up to that point could have prepared me for this. The people here are very nice and take good care of me, so I’m not complaining, but it sure is different from being in a loving home.

Sweetie | 3.6.19

Hello! I’m Sweetie and I’m a deaf, 1-year-old Dalmatian/American Bulldog mix. I was surrendered to the MaxFund because my owner found out I was pregnant and could not give me all the care and time I needed. I was brought in late December and have been waiting patiently to go up for adoption and meet you lovely humans. I spent the last 2 months taking care of my babies and am ready to go to my forever home. Just like my name says, I’m quite the sweetheart! I absolutely love all the humans and pups here at the shelter. If you’re looking for a loving girl to add to your life, look no further. I would absolutely love to meet your family members; 2-legged ones and the 4-legged ones too! Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver Co 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more.

Ginger | 2.27.19

My name is Ginger! I’m a flame point ragdoll, born in 2013. I had a nice home once, but my family moved and didn’t take me with them. I’m sure they thought a pretty girl like me would get adopted right away, but that was almost three years ago, and I’m still here. That’s half my life. I  dream about finding my forever home every day. I have a big personality, so ideally would love to be the only pet. I promise to brighten each of your days with my boundless fluff and adorable feline antics! Looking for the next social media star? I’m your girl! Looking for a sweet companion to share your life with? I’m your girl. Come meet me at the shelter located at 720 W. 10th Ave. Denver Co 80204 (we are closed on Tuesdays) or MaxFund.org to see more.
