November is Adopt a Senior Pet month!
I wanted to share the following information about senior dogs adoptable through MaxFund. If you are interested in adopting, visit the shelter to fill out an application. If you are not ready to adopt, consider being a foster. Thanks to Chelsea, who is a staff member and volunteer coordinator at MaxFund, for the information about the following senior pets at MaxFund!
SEPIA – (11 year old, female, Heeler mix) Sepia was a MaxFund dog previously and recently returned for barking. It sounds to us like she spent a lot of time alone, outside. She is absolutely charming, sweet and loving, and loves the company of people. She is great with other dogs, cats and kids, and would do well in nearly any home except an apartment. She will love and talk with you all day; this sweet older gal would love to get out of the shelter into a foster home where she can be comfortable and we can learn more about her, or ideally, we would love for this sweet Pia to be adopted forever!
SEELIE – (11 year old, female, Collie mix) – Seelie is a happy, delightful senior gal that would be happier in a calm, steady environment. Seelie is SUPER well behaved and ULTRA friendly. She is not bothered by other dogs, cats, or children and she enjoys her daily walks. She arrived at MaxFund with several lumps that have been removed by MaxFund vet staff. She has made a wonderful recovery and would be so happy in a loving home. Due to her age, she has some arthritis and is currently on a remedy of fish oil, glucosamine and Rimadyl.
GULLIVER– (10 year old, male, Chihuahua) – “Gulli” came to us as a lonely old stray and has been placed in a loving foster home where he is very comfortable until his forever home comes along. He is so easy to care for, loves to love, good with dogs and cats and would be fine with older children. Please contact his foster mom to meet him at 970-846-9823.
CHELSEA – (13 year old, female, Beagle/Shepherd) – Chelsea has been a resident at MaxFund since 2008 and has lived in a MaxFund foster home since then. She would love to be adopted forever and is certain to make someone very happy. She’s an easy going gal who currently lives with two other dogs. Chels has some arthritis but still gets around well and takes pain meds to manage the pain; her thyroid levels are also being maintained with daily medications. She takes them wonderfully and is never fussy. She would love to meet you and go home forever with a loving owner. Chelsea has been with MaxFund for many years and would love to find someone to keep her forever!
SAMANTHA – (12 year old, female, Poodle) – This sweet, loving gal came to MaxFund when her owner had health issues and couldn’t care for her. Samantha is young at heart and ready to bring happiness to your home. She is a mature, well-trained and super-loving pup; great with dogs, cats and older children. To meet Samantha or get more information, please call 303-595-4917.
PATCHES – (8 year old, female, Pointer mix) – Patches’ previous owners were in the military and had to move, causing her to find a new home. Patches is extremely attentive and smart; she loves exercise! She is hilarious when you have a lazer pointer and she tries to chase it!! Patches likes cats, small dogs and kids; she would do best with a yard or an active owner to explore with her. Please come to the shelter to meet Patches!
CLEOPATRA – (8 year old, female, Catahoula) – Cleo has become a favorite of many volunteers and staff; she is a super sweet, genuine loving and special gal. Super well-trained, affectionate, ready to hang at home or go for walks within her comfort zone. We have come to find out that Cleopatra is a fantastic mouse hunter!! (No wonder she doesn’t like cats!!) Cleo needs a home without kids and without other animals. Beware! Her “human peeves” are things with wheels – bikes, skateboards, grocery carts, etc)!
MR. MARLEY – (12 year old, male, Poodle) – Marley was a resident at MaxFund in 2007 and was adopted to an older couple, but came back this year because they couldn’t keep him (they were older too and couldn’t keep up with a dog anymore). Marley is low-key, friendly, and well-trained; it has been reported that he has siezures but we have not seen them since his return last month. He currently stays at the MaxFund Wellness Clinic for observation and a more calm environment.
ASHTON – (7-10 year old, female, Spaniel mix) – Ashton came in with another dog. Their owner passed away and there was no one to care for the dogs. Since they arrived at MaxFund, Ashton’s friend has been adopted and Ashton is extremely depressed at the shelter. If you are interested in her, please contact MaxFund (303-595-4917) so you can get more details about her personality and care.
BUSTER & SUSIE ( 13 year old, male and female, Cocker Spaniels) – Well when they say, “Two is better than one,” the phrase holds true for these two wonderful loving dogs! What a pair – closely bonded and extremely well-behaved, Buster and Susie came in when their owner lost his home. This was a difficult transition but they have adapted with smiles and happy spirits. Buster and Susie have SO much love and youth to share; they are waiting for their forever home so if you would like to meet them please call their foster mom at 303-319-8622.
GEORGE – (8 year old, male, Shepherd/Rottie) – Georgie Boy is a special guy with sweet loving eyes and a true gentleman like demeanor. He arrived as a stray who was never claimed by his owner. It is clear that someone owned him at one time, he is full-figured, well-behaved and very sophisticated. He will be a great addition to any home and is currently with a foster family who is loving him up and preparing him to be adopted. For more information or to meet George, please call 720-936-5645 – he would LOVE to meet you!
HANK – (11 year old, male, Husky) – What a story this big handsome boy has! Hank came a long way from New Mexico where he was close to euthanasia at another shelter. He happily arrived at MaxFund but went through many vet exams for dentals, heartworm treatment, vaccines and x-rays. Hank is a miracle dog, and now ready to bring a miracle home to his adopted family. Hank is great with other dogs and kids – are you ready for him?!! To meet Hank, please call his adoring foster mom at 720-308-4431.
SEYMOUR – (8 year old, male, Poodle mix) – Seymour will steal your heart! He is an ultra loving, connected, great dog. There is too much good to say about this sweet older man. He is waiting to share is love with his forever home and is great with other dogs, cats and kids. Seymour has soulful eyes and a perfect demeanor; pictures don’t do justice – so please set up a meeting to see him: 303-882-4486.
Thank you for reading and please share this post!
