In the middle of the night, Haney went out to check on the dog everyone was so concerned about, but when she arrived she couldn’t see any dog outside. She contacted the the Woolwich Township Police Department to tell them about the dog everyone had seen, and found they were already aware of the situation and were doing everything they could to ensure that the dog was safe.
“It was a bit painful only because we had to kind of sit in the dark for a few days while the police carefully did what they needed to do to pull the dog from the owner,” Haney said.
Later that week, though, Max the pit bull was finally removed from his home and taken to Gloucester County Animal Shelter, where he was cared for until a court hearing on October 6. His owner was found guilty and fined, and Max was officially surrendered to the shelter.
