Special Events and Mobile Adoptions

The purpose of this page is to make current volunteers aware of what events we need volunteer assistance with in the upcoming months! Unless specified otherwise, volunteers must have gone through a volunteer orientation and be wearing a MaxFund volunteer badge in order to help at these events! If you are not currently a MaxFund volunteer, please visit the Potential Volunteer Information Page for information on how to get started as a volunteer!

MaxFund is constantly participating in events in the community, as well as planning our own events throughout the year. Depending on the event, we may need only a few volunteers, or we may need dozens! For each event listed below, a contact for the event planner should be listed as well as information about the event! If you have any questions, please contact the volunteer/staff member planning that specific event!

A Holiday Affair for Paws

The Event - A holiday event hosted by the Celtic Tavern as a fundraiser for MaxFund with appetizers, a silent auction, and drinks! A $10 donation to MaxFund gets you a glass of wine, beer, or well cocktail. In addition the MaxFund mobile van will be there with some adoptable dogs!
The Time - Thursday December 16th 5:30-8:30pm
The Place - The Celtic Tavern, 1801 Blake Street in Denver
The Need - Volunteers to help with the mobile adoption van as well as talking up MaxFund and of course spreading the word about the event!


PETCO Mobile Adoption - University & Dry Creek

The Event - A monthly mobile adoption event! The mobile adoption van will be there with MaxFund dogs for the public to come and see and hopefully adopt! Great exposure for MaxFund as well as the lucky animals that attend the event!
The Time - Third weekend of every month
The Place - PETCO near University & Dry Creek
The Need - Volunteers to help handle dogs, talk them up, talk MaxFund up and hopefully get these animals adopted! The more volunteers the easier it is to cycle the dogs around and to get them the exposure they need! If they are just sitting in the van, they typically don't get nearly as much attention!
