Max-Finally Ready for A Forever Home



All of his life was one of a meager existence – no love to comfort him, no shelter to keep him warm, not enough food to keep him sustained – and a 20 foot tow chain that kept him there. His life was one of solitude which included no care and no compassion.

Max and how he was kept by his original owner.

Max, a 3 year old Great Dane, was confiscated by Society staffers…and yet he was afraid and unwilling to leave the only home he’d ever known. Through the whole tumultuous removal, he never tried to bite or be aggressive with any of his rescuers. Max and his story was featured in the February 2010 issue of the HUMANE NEWS. But the wheels of justice did turn slowly.

Max didn’t know how much better life could be … but it took 10 months and 9 court appearances for the Society to finally gain possession of Max. Even though his owner was being charged with animal cruelty, it was Max who served a sentence behind bars. When his owner did not show up for the final court appearance, the judge finally gave possession of Max to the Society.

Matty Giuliano, a Sergeant with the Monmouth County SPCA, was at every court appearance and the judge awarded the MC SPCA $1,000.

Max after the Society's good care for 10 months.

The Society has spent well over $7,000 for Max’s care and will have to take legal action to recoup the expenses once we determine the owner’s new address.

And now it is time for Max to be repaid for the injustice and footdragging that has kept him in limbo for almost a year. Max is ready for a forever home – but wanting to open your heart to this dog is not enough. He is 155 pounds of powerful strength and needs to have a lifetime commitment with someone who is familiar with a dominant fella. 

Max is currently located at our Forked River shelter. 

If you would like to help defray the speciality veterinary medical expenses AHS has just undergone in helping Max, please donate to our Res-Q Fund today!
