It seemed like the pup was getting a second chance to live out his golden years in a loving home when he was adopted again. But just 48 hours later, the neighbor of a volunteer discovered him tied to a rail in the cold, abandoned.
That volunteer, Monica S. da Costa, was both heartbroken and repulsed by Max’s abandonment, she shared on Facebook.
“So I woke up this morning to a post from a neighboor stating that last night at 11pm she found a dog tied to her railing – someone had abandoned him there. At night. In the cold.”
da Costa recognized Max from the shelter and brought him in so he’d have a place to stay. She has a few other animals and would not be able to keep him long term, but she refused to return him to the shelter where he might be euthanized.
