Talbot Humane has been providing pet food to residents in need since 2008 when our public pet food pantry opened. In late 2011 Pet Pantries of Talbot, Dorchester and Caroline Counties opened their organization and helped fill local shelters public pantry shelves. Mary Kramer and Barbara Mulready joined forces in an effort to ensure pets in need had full bellies across the Mid-shore.
For the past 5 years the support offered by Pet Pantries has been an important part of our outreach programs to residents in need. We are so grateful for all they have done for Talbot Humane, Caroline County Humane Society and Baywater Animal Rescue. Providing thousands of pounds of dry dog and cat food to the shelters annually they have helped us feed more pets in need, it has been a labor of love on their part!
Earlier this year, the team at Pet Pantries decided to close the organization. They generously provided their last funds to each organization to fill our shelves. We are continuing the spirit and teamwork of Pet Pantries going forward. Talbot Humane is joining with Caroline County Humane Society, Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne’s County, Kent County Humane Society and Baywater Animal Rescue to continue our missions of helping the animals of our communities- creating Mid-shore Pet Pantries Coalition. Each organization will be collecting food in their respective counties for the pantry with the help of local businesses and volunteers. Each organization is looking for businesses willing to be a drop off location as well as volunteers to monitor and transport food.
