Max is a Chula Vista native who first volunteered with Telegraph Canyon Animal Medical Center starting in 2011 and became a permanent team member on April 26, 2016. Attending school was unnecessary for Max as he possesses natural instincts "to protect and purr", which cannot be taught. During his work hours, Max enjoys posing as a fake stuffed animal cat sleeping on the charts at the front desk. When he is not "working" he enjoys sleeping, food, walking on desks, food, looking out the window, food, and belly rubs. Max's family consists of everyone at Telegraph Canyon AMC; he believes each staff member belongs to him! Max has been named employee of the month every month since April of 2016.
