Matching Gifts Make Twice the Difference

From now until the end of 2018 friends to the animals are matching up to $4,500 for the animals in need.  

 

People often ask “how does it cost THAT much to keep a shelter going? Don’t you just feed them?” Well, it is so much more than feeding animals! We serve the community in a number of ways, and unfortunately there is a cost associated with each. Pets are an important part of our lives, and our mission at Talbot Humane remains to protect the animals and serve the citizens.

Here are a few quick facts!

  • Our estimated annual budget for this fiscal year is just over $1M. We receive funds for animal control related expenses ONLY from Talbot County. This leave the need to raise more than $600,000 EACH YEAR. 
  • We receive NO FUNDING from the national organizations. We are not branches of these organizations or affiliates. 
  • These funds are needed to:
    • Keep the animals fed and medically treated
      • this year our above and beyond medical care for the animals in 11 months reached more than $50,000 alone
    • Allows our programs and services to continue to serve residents not only of Talbot County but surrounding areas- such as spaying and neutering more than 1,000 animals each year, our intervention program which keeps pets out of our shelter and other local shelters in the area
    • Keeps our quickly aging building in working order
    • Pay for staff and related staff expenses- a very needed commodity to have trained professionals caring for the animals and serving the community
    • Things you may not even think about- such as cleanings supplies, paper, lawn care, phone service
    • And SO much more!

So, when you wonder where the budget for your local shelters goes to, this is what it takes to continue to serve our communities!

If you are so inclined, from now until December 31st your gifts have been matched up to $4,500.

UNLEASHED Returns in 2019- Running Salisbury!

Start 2019 making a difference for yourself and animals in need! 

 

We WILL take the most seasoned couch potato to the finish line with our run:walk training program. If you have the will, you can do it!

This year our team is running the Salisbury Running Festival half marathon. We were a part of the inaugural festival last year and everyone truly enjoyed the experience.

This year thanks to our corporate sponsor, Bay Imprint, the registration fee is lower than ever which means this program is accessible to more friends to the animals! 

This is a get or give fundraising program. You raise funds for the animals in return for a fully supported non-competitive training program which promises to get you to the start line on Saturday April 6, 2019!

Our charity runners are doing an amazing job for the animals with their fundraising efforts! Since the Summer of 2012, our team has collectively raised more than $250,000 for the animals of our community! AMAZING!

For more information on UNLEASHED contact coach Amy Eutsey, (410) 822-0107 or volunteer@talbothumane.org today! We hope to see you on January 2nd!
