As the CFC (Combined Federal Campaign) begins its fall 2014 campaign for charitable giving by federal employees, we wanted to take a moment to say "THANK YOU" to everyone in the federal sector for your support!
Our CFC Charity Number is 36922.
MaxFund is proud to be a CFC charity that has been screened diligently by CFC volunteers for compliance with CFC's rigorous public accountability and other standards. You can be assured that every dollar donated to MaxFund is used wisely for the benefit of the dogs and cats who make their way to MaxFund! We're also a Charity Navigator 4-Star rated charity.
As a true no-kill animal shelter, we don't "pre-sort" animals into "adoptable" and "unadoptable" categories. We have found that there is a loving home for virtually EVERY homeless dog or cat. Our core mission is to take in injured strays, provide them the medical care they need, and find them great forever homes. As you can imagine, fulfilling this mission means that our medical costs greatly exceed those of most animal shelters. We could not help these deserving dogs and cats without YOUR help.
We take in animals from all over Colorado. When space allows, we take in transports from surrounding states as well. Our community services include a low-cost spay/neuter program that operates statewide, free adoptions for veterans, and low-income food and litter assistance. Often, animals are relinquished to us in a dire state: unvaccinated puppies with Parvo; newborn motherless kittens; dogs with a torn ACL; dogs and cats with out-of-control diabetes; dogs suffering from back leg paralysis; and the list goes on and on. We take in these animals as we are able, and give them a second chance at a healthy and happy future, thanks to generous community support.
Here are just some of the services that your dollars allow us to provide:
$100 = Exam, neutering, vaccinations, deworming and chipping for 4 HEALTHY male cats.
$200 = Exam, spaying, vaccinations, deworming and chipping for 4 HEALTHY female cats.
$300 = Exam, neutering, vaccinations, deworming and chipping for 4 HEALTHY male dogs.
$400 = Exam, spaying, vaccinations, deworming and chipping for 4 HEALTHY female dogs.
$500 = Consult with cardiologist, blood work and echocardiogram for an animal with heart issues.
$400-$600 = Internal medicine consult, testing, blood work and ultrasound.
$1200-$1500 = Consult, cultures and x-rays at CSU (Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Fort Collins) for cases that needed specialty consulting and care.
$1495-$1550 = TPLO orthopedic surgery for a torn ACL.
$1625 = A MONTH for needed diagnostics from the lab.
$2000-$3900 = Parvo (life threatening virus) care for ONE puppy requiring hospitalization.
As the CFC campaign gets under way, please contact us if you'd like more information. Our people can come to your events, fairs, and other speaking opportunities to tell you more about MaxFund and to share with you some of the stories of the dogs and cats you've helped. Again, thank you for your support!
