Joshua M. Hantman, an associate at the law firm of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, was recently appointed to the MaxFund advisory board. As a board member, Hantman will oversee the operations and finances of MaxFund, and help guide the strategic growth of the organization.
Incorporated in 1989, MaxFund was created by Dr. Bill Suro and his wife Nanci to save stray, injured animals from euthanasia. MaxFund received its name from its first patient, Max, a German Shepherd mix that was hit by a car and went unclaimed. Through donations from outside doctors, a fishbowl on Dr. Suro’s counter labeled “Max,” and a yard sale, it was able to raise enough money for Max’s extended care—MaxFund was born. With help from volunteers and donations, MaxFund continues to live on and, no matter how large it becomes, it prides itself on being “the small shelter that makes a big difference.” For more information about MaxFund, visit www.maxfund.org
