Help MaxFund Help Animals Affected By Hurricane Harvey

Donate Now!

September 3, 2017

Today, 6 staff and volunteers from MaxFund arrived home from Texas, bringing back a second transport of 22 dogs and 14 cats that needed rescuing after Hurricane Harvey.

We really need your support to help care for the animals that we brought back. Please make a donation right now at:

We could also use supply donations - ground turkey and Gerber baby food (chicken or turkey flavored) for stressed animals who have trouble eating when adapting to a shelter environment, as well as blankets, heating pads and pet beds.

You can bring any donations to the dog shelter located at  Galapago St. Denver, CO or the cat shelter (right across the street) located at 720 W.10th Ave Denver, CO. Donations of all kinds - monetary or supplies - are tax deductable. Please ask for a receipt if dropping off directly at the shelter.

Please, don’t delay in making your contribution - help Maxfund save these precious lives that have already been so badly affected by the devastating Hurricane Harvey.

Thank you for your continued support!

Help us Build Meow Manor

This June, we kicked off the capital campaign to expand the cat shelter. We hope to break ground soon on what will be Meow Manor - a much needed space for our longer-term resident cats to have more freedom and room to happily live out their lives. 

You can make a donation to help us build Meow Manor. We appreciate you, and  many of the cats in our care appreciate you, too.
