Monterey, CA, February 06, 2020 - Max’s Helping Paws Foundation will bring the Emerald City to Monterey for a glittering fundraiser in support of its mission — providing a financial lifeline for responsible pet owners with a pet in a health crisis.
The third annual Paws for a Cause event (Saturday, May 9) takes attendees on a journey through Kansas all the way to Oz. Guests will enjoy a reception with wines provided by Bernardus, followed by a plated dinner, silent and live auctions, music, dancing and a casino.

Max’s Helping Paws Foundation Fact Sheet:
MHPF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that partners with Monterey County veterinary practices to provide financial assistance to clients with pets in need of critical, short-term care or longer-term, continued care.
Pets are members of the family. MHPF keeps pets at home with their families and out of overburdened shelters.
MHPF’s minimizes economic euthanasia, surrender, and suffering of severely ill or injured pets due to their owners’ inability to afford necessary and unexpected medical treatments.
Since it first started providing financial assistance in mid-2017, MHPF has approved more than $160,000 (and growing) in financial assistance and has helped nearly 200 pet families deal with financial hardship.
MHFP is a matching program paying up to 50% of costs, including diagnostic tests (Up to the Maximum allowable), allowing owners to make informed decisions around the fate of their companion pet. We help owners educate themselves as to all their options. We are unique in this aspect. We also provide guidance to help pet owners gather their portion.
MHPF has 23 veterinary partners.
MHFP is based in Monterey County and serves only Monterey County.
We are very responsive to our pet families and our veterinary partners. We have a veterinary liaison, Shelley, so our veterinary partners have a person to go to keep lines of communication open.
We have a no-contract relationship with our veterinary partners, making for a very organic and personal connection. We have an enrollment form that outlines what we provide.
MHPF launched an unprecedented two-year pilot program that provides for pets with chronic conditions, the Continued Care Program, which will provide up to two years of ongoing financial support to responsible families whose dog or cat faces a chronic illness.
MHPF is the first animal welfare organization in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties to launch a Continued Care program such as this in Monterey County.
Max’s Helping Paws Foundation is named after Dyana and Jonathan’s beloved miniature pinscher, Maximillian, who they lost to illness in May of 2016.
