Talbot Humane


April is Pet ID month- It’s Back $1 Microchips!


According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), less than 2 percent of lost cats and only 15 to 20 percent of lost dogs are returned to their owners. This is a sad statistic, but it’s true. Your dog and cat cannot tell us their name, address or phone number- that is without your help! 


Talbot Humane wants to increase the chances of reunited lost pets and owners.  One safe and effective way to provide identification is through having your pet microchipped.  In recognition of Pet Identification Week which is the 3rd week of April each year, Talbot Humane will be offering microchipping of your dog, cat or ferret for only $1 for the entire month of April. This includes the registration of your chip and an identification tag.  Now when was the last time you purchased ANYTHING for $1?  


Even if your cat doesn’t go outside, or your dog is always on a leash, accidents happen. Make sure all of your pets are properly identified so they can get home to you in the event of an unforeseen emergency.  


To make an appointment, please call 410-822-0107 during office hours. Appointments for chipping are generally scheduled between noon-4P Monday-Saturday.

“Keep the Change” for the Animals!

For the Months of March and April our local Carrolls Motor Fuel And High’s Markets are donating for the animals in need! All you need to do is round up for the animals when you fuel up!  It is that simple!  When we each do a little, together we make a huge difference!



Our Humane Community, Changing Lives Together

We have been so blessed in recent weeks thanks to the generosity of our amazing community!
First, those crazy cats over at WCEI radio & WINX-FM dropped off a mass of food donated by the community through their #PawsforCause pet food drive! WCEI is one of our community partners and is always there for the animals and people when we need them.
Earlier this month our our friends at Easton Utilities, who too  are ALWAYS doing something special for the community AND Talbot Humane arrived bearing gifts! Their employees raised funds in December for the shelter and Easton Utilities matched it. Terri Bennett and Kelly Simonsen delivered a generous donation for the animals and lunch for our staff to show their appreciation. We are so lucky to have them in our community, and our staff was so thankful for the delicious pick me up!
Then today, our friends at Sts. Peter and Paul High School arrived with 1,000 pounds of food for our pet pantry too! They collected this during their lunch breaks for the past few weeks. The next generation is definitely THE humane generation.
We are so grateful for those who donated and arranged for these wonderful opportunities for the animals and our staff. You allow us to continue our important work for the animals in need on the midshore.

Third Thursday February 17th at Tickler’s Restaurant for the Animals

February Staff Spotlight- Nancy Benner

Nancy has been with Talbot Humane for well over a decade! She began as a volunteer somewhere around 2007/2008. Later she joined as a staff member- first helping to clean on the weekends.
Now our Programs Coordinator, Nancy is responsible for our spay/neuter program, cat intervention program as well as many other hats around the shelter. Helping the cats is one of her passions. You will find her cooking a whole chicken for enrichment for the cats (this is proof of true love for a vegetarian!) You may find her sitting with a cat that is a social eater to encourage them to eat or brushing a frightened kitty. Her work with the intervention program is vital as well. Nancy truly believes in the work we do at Talbot Humane and it shows in all she does.
If you see Nancy, please thank her, we think she is the Cat’s Pajamas!

February Volunteer Spotlight- Vicky VanLoo

What can we say about Vicky? She is always willing to step up for the animals, staff and other volunteers of Talbot Humane!
Her journey with us began with Talbot Humane over 6 years ago as a runner with our UNLEASHED charity running team. Shortly there after she joined our volunteer force. At any time you may see Vicky working with a dog, taking a pup for a field trip or a shelter break, volunteering at an event or even dressing up as SNAPS if we really need her! She even got her husband Bill to join our team- he has been a regular force on our Dog Pack since he retired too!
We are so thankful for Vicky and Bill. IF you see them, thank them for all they do for the animals of Talbot Humane!
