Mad Max Barkatansky's Walk for Animals 2017 Page
In early August 2016, a 16 lb. Australian Cattle Dog / Border Collie puppy rode in a van from an overloaded shelter in Oklahoma to a kennel at the Animal Human Society in Golden Valley, Minnesota. He was only there for a couple days before he caught the notice of Melissa, who immediately texted her husband and asked, "Can I have a Mad Max dog?"
The next day, Mad Max Barkatansky went to his permanent home with Melissa and Fes. He has since grown to a sturdy 40 lbs. and knows how to put his own toys away. He did not run for President of the United States, but he does like running, so local office might not be out of the question.
Every year, thousands of animals like Max need a new home. The Animal Humane Society provides these animals with food, shelter, medical care, and most importantly, the love they deserve. The AHS in Minnesota does such an amazing job at this that they even find homes for animals that come from thousands of miles away. (The day that Max found his forever-home was the same day that five other puppies from SOUTH KOREA arrived at the same AHS shelter and were immediately adopted!)
It is because of the Animal Humane Society that Mad Max Barkatansky is now happy and healthy today.
It is because of Max -- and all other dogs and cats and miscellaneous critters like him -- that I hope you’ll partner with me as I participate in this year’s Walk for Animals.
These animals rely on the support of compassionate people. Every donation, no matter how small, makes a difference. Your generosity now ensures AHS has the resources to care for and protect every animal that comes through their doors.
Please support the AHS and pets like Max with your donation today. Together, we can make happy new beginnings possible! Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
