- Matching Gift Campaign thanks to a generous donor through December 31st! Thanks to a generous member of our community, we have been offered an amazing gift! The chance to double our donations! Our goal is to raise $30,000 during the holiday season for the animals in our care. All you have to do to double your donation is put “matching gift” in the memo line of your check. Your donations will make double the difference for the animals! To donate online simply visit our secure site here. In the memo type “matching gift” as well.

- Saturday & Sunday December 15 &16 Photos with Santa Paws at the Easton PetSmart. Each year PetSmart donates to local shelters by their Photo with Santa Paws program. This year the weekend for Talbot Humane to benefit is December 15th & 16th! We will be there from 11a-4p, ready to help you make a holiday memory with your pet! The photos cost $10, and Talbot Humane will receive $5 from each photo sold on these days. These make great gifts for family and friends! We love that it has become a tradition for so many of our adopters- a great way to give back to Talbot Humane. We hope to see you!
- Saturday December 22nd The 4th Annual Cookie Walk and Pawsatively Fab Boutique at the Easton Farmer’s Market starts at 8a. This event has become quite a sensation! Thanks to Talbot Humane volunteer Jen Frye’s idea, this event has raised a ton of cash for the critters in our care! Our volunteers bake like mad to help the animals, and help take some of the stress off you during the holiday season! The idea, we have hundreds of homemade cookies lined up. You buy your box, and we fill it with your choice of delish treats! These make great gifts, use them instead of baking away yourself, or just have them on hand when friends drop by. Every cent goes to the care of the animals. Our boutique will also be open for those last minute gifts for the pets and pet lovers in your life. Interested in helping bake? email our volunteer coordinator Susan Langfitt today and she will add you to the list!
- Tuesday December 25th Santa Paws Delivers! From 7a-9a Talbot Humane Elves will be delivering adopted pets to homes! Click here for more details!
As you can see, there is a lot going on at Talbot Humane in the coming weeks. We hope you join in the fun. We appreciate you for all you do to help the animals in our care, and in the community.
