According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), less than 2 percent of cats and only 15 to 20 percent of 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 $10 for the entire month of April. This includes the registration of your chip with HomeAgain and an identification tag. Now when was the last time you even purchased a collar for $10?
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!
Come out to support Talbot Humane and our Executive Director who is the reigning champion of 2017 for our Guest BARKtender competition! Once again 4 of our great Talbot Humane friends will be slinging drinks for the animals at Doc’s! Talbot Humane’s Executive Director is first up competing for her title and most importantly raising cash for the animals of our community.
Drink and dinner specials will be to help those that need us most- 10% of the dinner bill from 5-7:30PM goes to the animals and fill the donation jugs too!
We hope you choose to join us this Thursday evening at Doc’s Downtown Grille. We thank Doc’s for always stepping up for the needs of Talbot Humane, supporters like Doc’s and you are why we believe…

Each of their works reflects a lifelong devotion to and expertise in the art and craft of songwriting. Thought-provoking lyrics take the listener on an exhilarating roller coaster ride of wide-ranging emotions. Their eclectic musical style spans the spectrum, encompassing folk, rock, country, bluegrass, Americana, blues, Cajun, and gospel.
John and Tom’s songs feature a winning mix of stellar lyrics and exciting diverse music. The paired-down presentation of piano and guitar afford the listener an intimate direct experience and, best of all, a chance to hear the songs as they were written.
Our awesome friends at TriCycle and Run are once again doing their Frosty Paws 5K to support the animals of our community! Saturday January 20th their free 5K will be held in St. Michaels.

It is encouraged everyone you know to register online here: https://runsignup.com/Race/MD/SaintMichaels/FrostyPawsFREE5KFunRun
As for race day, please plan to arrive at the shop (TriCycle and Run – 929 S. Talbot St. – St. Michaels – MD – 21663) no later than 8:30am to pick up your bib and complete registration. Please plan to park at St. Michaels Elementary School (on Seymour Ave.), then make the short walk down to the shop. There will be a pre-race meeting in the front parking lot at 8:45am. We will then walk as a group to the start line across the street at 9:00am.
As usual, this event is designed to be FUN!! As such, this is a prediction race….meaning that just because you cross the finish line first, doesn’t necessarily mean that you are the race winner. You will need to guess your finish time by the closest margin to be declared a race winner!!
“The Dog” is at it again! The Kool Kats at Hair O’ The Dog Wine & Spirits annual Chili Cook-Off is once again, going to the dogs (and cats too!) Friday February 2nd from 5-7PM you will have the chance to taste not 3 but 6 delish chili dishes (everything from meat-lovers to vegan are represented!) paired with wine or beer. Our Annual Battle for the Chili Bowl is a good time for everyone- especially the animals in need! Each year it is Talbot Humane staff & volunteers verses “The Dog” staff in an effort to raise funds for the animals! You vote with your dollars to see which team wins! The generous folks at HOTD are also donating a 10% of the sale of featured wine and beer to Talbot Humane during this event. These folks really are AMAZING friends to the animals!
This year the funds will go toward our program which helps us keep loved pets in their homes. Your support means pets stay where they are most loved, and out of hte shelters of our area!
Not into chili so much? Well, you will still want to stop by and meet our pets for adoption, enter your name in a raffle drawing and just join in the fun! Questions? Contact us today! We just KNOW it’s gonna be fun for everyone, and the big winners- the animals thanks to the generosity of Hair O’ the Dog and YOU!
While our mission speaks to preventing pet overpopulation, preventing acts of cruelty and neglect and providing a safe haven for animals of our community, another important goal is pet retention. All too often pet owners do not reach out to their local shelters, trainers or veterinarians. Talbot Humane wishes to be a resource for pet owners.
In cooperation with our local veterinarians, trainers and other animal related resources in our area, our hope is to offer solutions in order to help loved pets stay in their homes. Issues such as inability to afford acute medical care, litter box issues, inappropriate barking, destructive behavior, socialization, even life circumstance changes which may lead owners to need some assistance with feeding and care for a period of time. Our ultimate goal- pets stay in the home and reduce the number of animals entering local shelters.
If you are a pet owner experiencing problems and are in need of guidance or have considered surrendering a pet due to life circumstances please contact us today. Please email Dayniese Hurley at Dayniese@talbothumane.org or call (410)822-0107 and state that you are calling regarding tour retention services. We want to help keep the 2 and 4 legged members of your family together!
