MaxFund is a non-profit No-Kill Animal Shelter and Adoption Center, established in 1988 by Nanci and Bill Suro. Animals find their way to MaxFund by many roads, some more tragic than others, some simply victims of circumstance. Whatever road they take, MaxFund strives to perform all basic care for animals committed to its stewardship, including medical needs, rehabilitation, training, socialization and then finding them good homes with responsible pet parents. The organization provides crucial services including orthopedic surgery and other veterinary care for injured dogs and cats. More importantly, MaxFund has placed over 24,000 animals in new forever homes and has saved thousands with the spay and neuter program.
