January Staff Spotlight- Amy Eutsey

Officially a staff member since January 2015, Amy has been involved with Talbot Humane for more than 10 years!

Her role with us began as head coach of our UNLEASHED team- Talbot Humane’s Charity running program. Training hundreds of local friends over the past 10 years to cross finish lines and raise funds for the animals is a passion for Amy.

In 2015 Amy joined our staff as the database coordinator and later became our volunteer coordinator. Amy’s patient manner and kind heart is a perfect fit for our volunteer force. “These friends are so dedicated to the animals and the shelter, it is a pleasure working with them” shares Amy.

This year while the shelter celebrates 90 years of service, UNLEASHED will also hit a milestone- 10 years of ordinary folks to do extraordinary things for themselves and the animals! We are gearing up to train a new team for the Richmond running festival in November 2022- be on the look out for information coming in April!

If you see Amy, thank her for her work, we are thankful to have her as part of our team!

#BettyWhite Challenge- Helping Animals in Need

As we all know the gift of Betty White left us on December 31, 2021. While she brought great laughter and joy to many of us through her comedy, those of us in animal welfare knew her as a true advocate for those without a voice. Throughout her life and career, she used her fame to help animals across the world.

At the time of her passing a trend began on social media. The #BettyWhiteChallenge, which encourages animal lovers and those who loved Betty to make a donation to their local shelter on January 17, 2022- what would be her 100th birthday.

Talbot Humane hopes our friends will join in celebrating the amazing life of this kind and funny lady and join the challenge! Just think, if 1,000 friends donate $10 each we could raise $10,000 in her honor!

If you are so inclined we welcome you to make your donation online today: Talbot Humane Donation Page

January Volunteer Spotlight- Trey Cherbonnier

Trey joined the Talbot Humane volunteer team in 2021. A dog lover, Trey also has mad skills when it comes to carpentry and repair work. Always a smiling face, Trey will literally show up and say “What do you need done today!” Whether walking a dog that needs some TLC or changing a door handle, he is here for the animals and staff.

With an aged building that is always in need of repairs, Trey with the assistance of his dad, has repaired kennel doors, caulking, cracked floor in the dog kennels, repaired doors, lights and more around the shelter.

This fall Trey went and spoke with the great friends at Lowe’s of Easton and asked if they would be interested in donating supplies to assist with the repairs. They stepped up and really made a difference! Thanks to Trey and our humane community they saved a tremendous amount of money that can be put towards other needs- such as animals in need of medical care.

We are lucky to have Trey on our team, if you see him around thank him for the work he does for the shelter and animals!

Celebrating 90 years!

This year Talbot Humane (FKA Talbot County Humane Society) celebrates 90 years of serving our community! We are looking forward to sharing the history of our shelter and the work done for the animals of the Midshore as well as look to see what the future holds.

 

If you or a family member was involved in the shelter and have photos or memorabilia you would like to share or lend, please contact Patty Quimby today patty@talbothumane.org or 410-822-0107.

Plans for Expansion to Better Serve the Community

2021 was a landmark year for Talbot Humane, a nonprofit that has served the midshore since 1932, seeing to the well-being of animals and the needs of the community in a wealth of ways, from offering spay/neuter assistance and carefully considered adoptions to crafting legislation to improve animal welfare and micro-chipping pets. In November, the shelter acquired land and a building next door to the existing premises. The real estate was purchased directly from St. Peter and Paul Church.  

Talk about serendipity! 

“A much-needed updating and expansion of our facility was something we had been considering for a while, but it hadn’t made it past the back burner,” says Patty Crankshaw-Quimby, Talbot Humane’s Executive Director. “We were happily surprised by the opportunity that literally fell into our laps. It was the proverbial ‘offer you can’t refuse.’ Saint Peter and Paul approached us to ask if we had any interest in acquiring the real estate. The answer was a resounding “yes”! (Indeed, the Parish House was the locale of our holiday gift shop.) 

A vastly updated and enlarged shelter will enhance Talbot Humane’s efforts on behalf of the animals in our care and beyond.  We will be able to offer services to members of our community—and perhaps even beyond Talbot County {“Animals in need know nothing of geographic boundaries,” Patty says).     

With the land and building now in our possession, we have entered the planning phase of what will be a years-long effort. Early wish-list brainstorming has already begun.  

“A facility with plenty of natural light is key,” says Patty, knowing that this cuts down on the animals’ stress level. Animals flourish when they get a sense of daylight. “Their comfort will be considered at every turn.” She explains that enclosures will no longer be “cages” and chain link. Well-maintained green spaces will punctuate the campus, offering great play spaces for the animals. Medical facilities will be expanded. Also benefitting from the up-to-date shelter will be staffers, volunteers, and the public. Colorful, inviting areas for potential adopters to spend time with the animals will be paramount. Plans will be drawn up with an eye toward maximum efficiency, sustainability, and use of technology.  

“2022 marks Talbot Humane’s 90th anniversary,” says Board President Bridget Horner. “We are thrilled to be entering this banner new year with such a groundbreaking project.”
