That's Max on the left, the inspiration for "Miles for Max," the 400+ mile bike ride that his person, James Pierce is about to undertake across Iowa. The beloved Spaniel passed away this past September 25 while James was riding Apple Cider Century, and James decided to do the upcoming ride as a charity event in Max's memory with Friends as the beneficiary. But now he needs your help. Please support James' ride by donating to Miles For Max on this website to help more homeless dogs and cats from the Chicago City shelter get the medical care they need and the forever families they so deserve. For more about James and Max, check the James Pierce Facebook page. Thank you!
