From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU to all who made Puttin' on the Max 2015 a huge success! We appreciate all who attended, donated items for the silent auction, volunteered to help plan and execute the event, and otherwise pitched in to help!
"Special needs" dogs and cats may have medical issues that require special attention, like administering medicine. They may need a special diet. They may have physical infirmities, like vision impairments. They may just be elderly or, in the case of some cats, they may be shy due to a lack of early socialization. All need loving homes, though! Some are in foster homes and are seeking loving forever homes; others are seeking foster or forever homes.
Oftentimes, an animal's "special needs" are not all that daunting, so please don't be deterred by the terminology! Contact the MaxFund office, and we'll be happy to let you know what the scope of their needs is. For those dogs and cats needing foster homes, medical care, medications, and prescription diet food will be provided by the MaxFund Wellness Center.
If you're interested in fostering, please view our fostering page. You can download the fostering application there, too!
November is "Adopt a Senior Pet" month! What better way to celebrate November than by coming to MaxFund and adopting a senior dog or cat?
You might wonder, "Why should I adopt an older dog or cat when there are always puppies and kittens available?" Well, it turns out there are LOTS of great reasons to adopt a senior pet! Dr. Karen Becker gives you a dozen reasons in this article, "12 Reasons to Adopt the Least Adoptable Shelter Pet."
In MaxFund's experience, with an older pet, "what you see is what you get." You don't need to worry about what size they'll be, or what temperament they'll grow up to have. While there are certainly joys involved in raising a puppy or kitten, there are also lots of trials and tribulations! With an older pet, you won't have to live through things like "the chewing everything in sight" phase or the "climbing to the top of everything in the house" phase! And, of course, you'll be giving the gift of safe, happy, and secure "golden years" to a very deserving dog or cat, who will repay you a thousand times over with love and loyalty.
