The Max Foundation is a nonprofit charity organization focused on combatting the plight of straydogs in Bihac, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Right now, there are thousands of dogs living on the streets and adjacent landfill, and while the city seeks to provide aid to these animals, they lack the funds necessary to care for the dog population. But that’s where we come in. The Max Foundation, in cooperation with veterinarians and volunteers, seeks to resolve this problem sustainably and humanely, through the following means:
Our goals are challenging, and the road ahead is steep, but the results will make it all worthwhile. We cannot accomplish our mission without your support. Please consider donating today.
My name is Max. When I was about 10 weeks old someone found me in a parking lot in Los Angeles. He took me to an animal shelter. I was very lucky that I was adopted just a week later. My life has been very exciting. We even moved from Los Angeles to Germany and I met a lot of great people. I was loved and my well-being always came first. I had many nicknames from ‘Mäuserich’ to ‘Macki’ to 'Good Boy'. I was certainly not perfect, but for my people I was. Unfortunately I lost the fight against cancer last year at the age of 10. I must have left a good impression, because now there is a foundation with my name. The people from the Max Foundation will give us dogs a voice, dedicated to win the fight against animal suffering.
People behind the mission. We are a small but highly dedicated team from Germany and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Christin is the founder of the Max Foundation e.V.. She used to live in Los Angeles for 10 years and was running her own photo syndication agency LimeFoto. She represented well-known celebrity photographers such as Herb Ritts, Tony Duran and Robert Sebree. Back then she adopted her dog Max from a local shelter. He moved back with her to Germany and stayed at her side for 10 years. While running her private business as an interior designer, she and her husband adopted their new dog Knut thru Arche4Dogs e.V. last year. That lead her to Bihac, Bosnia and Herzegovina last year. She realized how much support is needed and since then, she is dedicated to the mission of the Max Foundation e.V..
Saving an animal doesn’t change the entire world, but the entire world is changing for this one animal.
