Recently the Talbot Humane Board of Directors and staff officially adopted the 8 tenets of Socially Conscious Sheltering. We have been operating in this manner for some time, but had not put a name to our beliefs. This model of sheltering originated Colorado and has been adopted by a number of shelters in that state and beyond. Socially Conscious Sheltering surpasses the ideals of kill verses no kill. We are proud to serve the community through our commitment to protect and provide humane care and treatment to all animals, whether healthy or not, friendly or not, with compassion, transparency and thoughtfulness. We truly believe, the best shelter is a Humane Community.
The Eight Tenets of Socially Conscious Animal Sheltering are as follows:
We are here to help. Our mission continues to be service to animals and their owners of the Midshore with compassion, transparency and thoughtfulness. You are part of our Humane Community.
In times of crisis, people are often told to leave their homes for a “short time,” only to find that they cannot return for days or even weeks. As a result, community animal shelters are overwhelmed with lost and separated pets following a disaster.
“Helping our residents and pets during an emergency is extremely important to our organization.” Said Patty Quimby, Executive Director of Talbot Humane. “The Talbot Animal Disaster Services Team has been in place and ready to assist our residents during weather or other catastrophic emergencies where an emergency shelter would need to be opened since 2010. Providing the tools to our residents to be prepared in the event of an emergency is a priority.” Quimby adds, “Preparedness saves lives.”
Talbot Humane suggests families build a Pet Emergency Go-Kit and store it with the rest of the family’s emergency preparations:
They also recommend the following Tips to Help Ensure Your Pet’s Safety in an Emergency:
Welcome to Talbot Humane’s very first calendar photo contest!
You know you have the most beautiful or handsome pet, or one with a personality like no other who always makes you smile or laugh. Well, here’s your chance to show them off! And by sharing your beloved pet’s photo, you are raising funds to support not only the animals of Talbot Humane, but those throughout our community as well. Participation in the contest is not limited to Talbot Humane alum…all pets are welcome!
It’s easy to participate! Register your pet any time between July 1 and August 16, 2019 (keep in mind that early entrants are likely to get the most votes). Submit your pet’s photo and brief text telling your pet’s story. Your $25 registration fee is considered a tax-deductible donation to Talbot Humane. Each entrant will receive a copy of the Talbot Humane Petparazzi 2020 Calendar, a $15.00 value!
Once your pet is entered and appears on our contest website, it’s time to start encouraging your family, friends, co-workers, etc., to vote early and often for your pet. $1 buys 1 vote ($5 minimum). Spread the word…share your pet’s campaign by email and via social media. People can vote as often as they like and votes will be displayed on the contest web page as they come in. Don’t forget to vote for your pet yourself! Our goal is to raise $10,000+ to help Talbot Humane continue to help the animals of our community.
There are 12 full-page opportunities to win. Entries are divided into three categories eligible for prizes: dogs, cats, and other (any other domestic animal such as a bird, reptile, small companion animal, etc.). The top 5 dogs, top 5 cats, and top 2 “other” pets with the most votes in their respective categories will be featured as a Pet of the Month in the 2020 Talbot Humane Petparazzi Calendar. The pet with the most votes overall will be our Grand Prize winner, named Talbot Humane’s 2020 Coverpet of the Year, and will be featured on the cover of the calendar in addition to appearing as a Pet of the Month.
Talbot Humane is proud to announce we have joined forces with fellow Maryland humane and animal control facilities to place 2,000 cats and kittens in new homes during the month of July fr the 3rd year in a row! Fees will be waived at all of these facilities and each one will have other special incentives.
New this year there is a website dedicated to the event www.maryland2000.com
Our open admission shelter could not do all we do without the support of adopters, donors, volunteers and well wishers. If you are considering adoption of a new cat or kitten, July is the right time to fall in love! We can’t wait to break this number and place these needy pets in loving homes, with your help!
The following shelters across Maryland are participating!
