Break out the leg warmers, neon sweatsuits, Lee press-on nails, headbands and DEP styling gel! YESSS!!! So it’s sorta social. Demented and sad, but social. It’s time to re-live the days of our childhood. The time that all these 21 year olds wearing neon only dreamed about…THE 80′s! And what better way but for a great cause that gives 100% of the proceeds to the best animal shelter in Denver, Maxfund – Denver’s No-Kill Animal Shelter. Each year MaxFund saves many dogs and cats that would have been euthanized by many other local shelters.
MaxFund is a non-profit organization that was established in May of 1988 to provide medical care for injured pets with no known owners, and to seek out new homes for these animals once they have recovered.
The MaxFund provides emergency care and a home for injured animals until the owner is located or a suitable home is found. This service is provided, without cost, to the caring person who notifies the MaxFund.
The MaxFund is a TRUE no-kill shelter. There is no pre-sorting of animals into “adoptable” and “non-adoptable” categories. The MaxFund takes every animal. EVERY animal is kept until its owner is found or it is placed in a new adoptive home. The only reason for euthanasia is when it is in the humane interest of the animal. No animal is discarded to municipal shelters for them to be euthanized when the prescribed number of days run out. Because the animals usually start off with a medical bill and period of recovery and rehabilitation, and because they are a true no-kill shelter, their operating costs are much higher than other shelters.

In addition to the No-Kill Shelter, MaxFund also has a low-cost Wellness Clinic that offers discounted veterinary services for dogs and cats. You don’t have to pre-qualify or live in the City and County of Denver.
So come out and give your support to this great organization and have fun in the process! Hope to see you there!
