Mission Statement

MaxFund is a non-profit, true no-kill animal shelter and adoption center that challenges the traditional methods of animal sheltering by leading the no-kill movement in Colorado. MaxFund strives to give animals, including the injured, abandoned and abused "a second chance at life".

Organization History

Max was hit by a car. In shock, and with two broken legs, he was left by the side of the road. A young woman felt pity and took him to the local veterinarian. But after 10 days there was no one to take care of his extensive, and expensive orthopedic surgeries. Dr. Bill Suro owned a vet hospital at that time, with his wife, Nanci Suro as hospital manager. They decided to accept Max with all his problems.

Despite all the pain and discomfort from multiple surgeries and a long period of physical therapy and rehabilitation, Max never lost his amazing attitude. He quickly became a favorite of staff and clients alike. A fish bowl was placed on the front desk for donations towards Max's hospital bill. The sign on the fish bowl said "The Max Fund."

After five surgeries and eight weeks of hospitalization, Max was discharged and adopted by one of his veterinarians, Dr. John Joseph, DVM.

The happy ending to Max's story was the happy beginning of MaxFund. The money left over from the generous donations for Max was the initial start-up money for MaxFund.


Thank you, MaxFund, for taking in Lola when she needed so many treatments. I'm so lucky I found her. I'm so lucky she found me."
