Opt to Adopt on World Spay Day


Denver, CO

Fox is a handsome flame-point Siamese waiting for his forever human at MaxFund.  He loves to be pet and gets along well with other cats, kids, and dogs.  He has a cute squeaky mew, too!  

Fox was brought to MaxFund in 2015 as a stray.  The shelter estimates he was born in 2010.  He had to have most of his teeth removed because they were bad.  He does fine without them, but he is a little more drool-y than other kitties, especially when he gets a lot of attention or hears a can open.  He is also FIV positive.  FIV cannot be transferred to dogs or humans and is only transferred to other cats through penetrating bite wounds.  FIV+ cats can live happy, healthy lives, so please do not let this dissuade you from meeting this sweet boy.

You can meet Fox at MaxFund, located at 720 W. 10th Avenue in Denver, CO.  You can call the shelter at 303-595-4917 to get more information about him as well. 


Unfortunately there are far too many cats and dogs waiting for forever homes in shelters today.  According to World Spay Day.org, an estimated 2.4 million healthy and treatable cats and dogs are euthanized each year in U.S. shelters.  That's an astounding number, and it makes me so sad that so many wonderful companions are being unnecessarily euthanized.  

Spaying and neutering cats and dogs helps reduce pet overpopulation and saves lives.  Not only that, but spaying and neutering has health benefits as well.  Spaying female cats reduces their risk of developing uterine, ovarian, and breast cancer, especially when it is done before their first heat.  Neutering male cats eliminates the chance they will get testicular cancer and reduces the likelihood that they will develop prostate disease.  

There are numerous clinics that offer low-cost or even free spay and neuter surgeries.  You can find one in your area by searching the ASPCA database or visiting Love that Cat.  


  1. This is why I TNR! Stop the cycle, and if I can trap a feral cat, then anyone can because I am a wuss! But I've done it many times now, and am proud of my stash of humane traps and the drop trap that The Hubby built for me a few years ago. Love my drop trap! Spay and Neuter!

  2. Fox is such a handsome boy. I've known multiple FIV-positive cats, and they've all been such sweet cats, and otherwise perfectly healthy! And, thank you for spreading the word on the importance of spaying and neutering! Purrs!

  3. What a cute guy he is! We are VERY strong supporters of fixed furry folks in this house.

  4. He is a handsome guy. I hope he gets a forever home soon.

  5. Fox is one foxy guy! Sorry, couldn't resist. Besides, it's true.

  6. Fox sure is one handsome dude and we hope home comes a calling soon!

  7. Thank you for spreading the word about this, it's SO important! Fox is so cute we bet his forever home is just around the corner.

  8. Yes, yes, yes, spay and neuter! It breaks my heart that cats and dogs die needlessly.

  9. Such an impawtant message. Fox is beautiful, and we hope he finds a forever home soon. Purrs

  10. There is no reason on earth that cats and dogs should be killed. People do not take responsibility. Anyone letting intact pets run in the streets should be stiffly fined. Maybe locked up too!
    We will help get the word out on Fox. He is so handsome. Our Mr Buttons is FIV and a wonderful kitty
