Max, a three-year-old dog who was abandoned in a Toronto parkette due to his owners’ financial difficulties, has officially been put up for adoption. The Toronto Humane Society (THS) were working with the owners through their Urgent Care program to give them an opportunity to reunite with Max. However, the family decided it would be best for Max to go to a new home. Max will now begin the standard adoption process at THS and has already had several people express interest. Inflation is putting many dog owners in a tough position: “Choosing between caring for your pet and caring for your well-being is not a fair choice, but unfortunately, with nowhere left to turn, this has become a reality for a growing number [of people],” says the THS.
