Local Businesses Support Bark Week

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Let The Cat Out…
Talbot Humane Introduces…

bark week

Talbot Humane is playing on the Discovery Channel’s popular “Shark Week” by introducing its own “Bark Week” celebration October 14-18, leading up to the 4th annual Bark in the Bark festival on October 19 at Idlewild Park in Easton.

Bark Week features a series of community events at Easton and St. Michaels businesses, showcasing and in support of Talbot Humane’s adoptable dogs.

Promotions will run Monday through Friday during Bark Week at Marcoritaville in St. Michaels and at The BBQ Joint in Easton, Wednesday at Rise Up Coffee in Easton, and Friday at the Village Shoppe in St. Michaels. Donation jars will welcome contributions at all locations.

Marcoritaville offers half-price burgers at lunchtime throughout Bark Week. Dogs from Talbot Humane visit on Monday from noon to 2 p.m., tempting diners both to adopt and to donate. Chef Mark will match the week’s donation jar contributions made at Marcoritaville.

Adoptable dogs visit The BBQ Joint on Tuesday from 4 to 6 p.m. The eatery will offer homemade dog biscuits in support of Talbot Humane all week long. “We hear those doggie biscuits are delicious!” said Patty Crankshaw-Quimby, Talbot Humane’s executive director.

She encourages everyone to come out and get their morning cup of joe at Rise Up Coffee in Easton on Wednesday from 7 to 11 a.m. The dogs visit from 10 to 11, and Talbot Humane’s mascot, SNAPS, will stop by to greet the coffee crowd.

Bark Week concludes on Friday with a visit to the Village Shoppe in St. Michaels from noon to 6 p.m. by volunteer Pete Howell with his dog, adopted from Talbot Humane. “Be prepared to have Pete talk you into adopting,” warned Crankshaw-Quimby, “or at least coming out for Bark in the Park the next day.”

Crankshaw-Quimby thanked all four businesses for their support of Bark Week. “The Bark Week events are building excitement for Bark in the Park on Saturday,” she explained. “Having these businesses take part in the effort shows how committed our whole community is to the work Talbot Humane does for the animals of Talbot County.”

100 Cat Challenge at Talbot Humane

Once again Tkittens for adoption at Talbot Humanealbot Humane is going CAT CRAZY with a 100 Feline Challenge to the community. The goal- to place 100 cats and kittens into new forever homes by September 30th. Waiving the usual adoption fee which ranges from $25-$75, during this challenge the adoption fee is to donate cat or kitten food to help provide care for the many cats still in need of a new home. Our cat population has remained over 200 for most of the summer.  Our hope is to bring awareness to the plight of cats and kittens in our area as well as find homes for the many homeless pets waiting at Talbot Humane. All cats and kittens are altered, vaccinated, tested for FeLV/FIV and microchipped prior to adoption.  So, as you can see, you are not only finding a new best friend, but, you have saved $250-400 verses that cat or kitten “Free to a good home” in the paper.  For more information on one of the many pets for adoption or on how you can volunteer, contact Talbot Humane at (410)822-0107.

Pints for Pets a Success!

The afternoon of Sunday August 4th was definitely all about the dogs (and cats!) at Bannings Tavern in Easton.  Chef Mangasarian and his staff opened their doors to Talbot Humane and local animal lovers in an effort to raise funds for homeless pets.  Pints from Eastern Shore Brewing, hot dogs and home made dog biscuits were a hit, raising more than $700 for the animals in a few short hours. We wish to thank Bannings Tavern, Eastern Shore Brewing and Kelley Distributors of Easton for your generosity and support. Yet another example of our wonderful community giving back to Talbot Humane!

Clint & Lomax Happy New Beginnings!

ClintLast November, two deserving kittens needed your help. Thanks to your generosity, both Clint and Lomax received the surgeries they required.

As you may remember, Lomax was in need of surgery to removed a ruptured eye.  He received his surgery and healed quickly.   The most fabulous part of his story was still to come.  Lomax was not in our adoption program more than 2 days when his new family came to Talbot Humane and fell in love. This was all possible because of you!

Clint, needing much more invasive and complicated surgery has also received his treatment.  Upon further investigation and examination, he was discovered to be in need of corrective surgery on his knee.  Just days after Christmas the veterinarians at Veterinary Medical Center performed his surgery.  His prognosis is great!  He is still recovering from surgery here at Talbot Humane and will surely find his new home once he is ready to be adopted!
