9 Lives for $9 – Feline Frenzy at Talbot Humane

We understand adopting a new pet brings a number of expenses such as food, litter, a wellness check at the veterinarian, flea and tick treatment and so on.  In an effort to place the more than 180 cats in our care into new loving homes we have drastically lowered the adoption fees to encourage adoption.

When you adopt from Talbot Humane, especially during the times when our shelter is at capacity, you are not only saving the life of the animal you adopt, you are also saving those still waiting for a home.  At Talbot Humane, we believe it is our obligation to place every adoptable pet into a new home.  This mission is not easy, but with your help it can be accomplished.

For every animal entering our adoption program, we spend approximately $100 on medical care.  For sick animals or those with special needs, this cost rises greatly.  When you add in expenses such as food, litter, and staffing to care for the more than 1,300 animals which enter our care annually, the cost per animal is significant.  On top of the monetary expense, studies show for every day an feline resides in a shelter situation, their chance for illness rises by 3%.    This is why the support of our community through donations and adoption is so vital!

For more information on how to adopt or help the multitude of wonderful felines available, please stop by, call or email us today!  If we all do a little, together we make a huge difference for the animals.

Lives are saved thanks to friends like you!


At the end of April, Anastasia, a 1yr old Parsons Terrier arrived  at Talbot Humane.  Stray, scared and very pregnant, our staff provided for her and gave her extra TLC each day.  Unfortunately like so many other animals that come through our doors, no one ever came searching for this sweet girl.
Last Friday morning Anastasia went into labor and staff anxiously awaited the new arrivals.  Very quickly we realized something was wrong and rushed her to the veterinarian.  While the puppies could not be saved, the doctors at Veterinary Medical Center saved Anastasia’s life.  The happy ending is she is recovering at Talbot Humane and has a new family waiting for her once she is well enough to go home.This week Officer Brittingham received a call after hours for a dog with severe injuries dueto a scuffle with a neighbor’s pet.   Lilly, the black lab mix was not doing well and the owner could not afford veterinary treatment.  Wanting what was best for her dog, the owner surrendered Lilly to Talbot Humane.

Officer Brittingham rushed Lilly to Veterinary Medical Center where they quickly went to work, cleaning her wounds, inserting drains and starting her on antibiotics.  She is expected to make a full recovery.

Situations like these are not uncommon at Talbot Humane.  We do our very best for each animal entering our care.  It is part of our mission to  place every treatable and adoptable pet into a new forever home.  But, to provide care for pets like Anastasia and Lilly is expensive.  The medical bills for these 2 deserving pups have already risen to over $1,500. I’m sure you can guess, this will take a big bite out of our Shiloh Fund. This fund was created to provide special needs care beyond the basics to Talbot Humane animals.

This is where you come in.

We need your help today so we can provide care such as this to future Lillys and Anastasias.  It is because of friends like you that we are able to fulfill our mission daily.  Won’t you consider making a donation to our Shiloh Fund now?  Your donation will save the life of the next special needs animal that comes through our  doors.

Thank you for considering a tax deductible donation to Talbot Humane.  Remember, if we each do a little, we can make an amazing difference for the animals together.

For the Animals,

Patty Crankshaw-Quimby
