We understand adopting a new pet brings a number of expenses such as food, litter, a wellness check at the veterinarian, flea and tick treatment and so on. In an effort to place the more than 180 cats in our care into new loving homes we have drastically lowered the adoption fees to encourage adoption.
When you adopt from Talbot Humane, especially during the times when our shelter is at capacity, you are not only saving the life of the animal you adopt, you are also saving those still waiting for a home. At Talbot Humane, we believe it is our obligation to place every adoptable pet into a new home. This mission is not easy, but with your help it can be accomplished.
For every animal entering our adoption program, we spend approximately $100 on medical care. For sick animals or those with special needs, this cost rises greatly. When you add in expenses such as food, litter, and staffing to care for the more than 1,300 animals which enter our care annually, the cost per animal is significant. On top of the monetary expense, studies show for every day an feline resides in a shelter situation, their chance for illness rises by 3%. This is why the support of our community through donations and adoption is so vital!
For more information on how to adopt or help the multitude of wonderful felines available, please stop by, call or email us today! If we all do a little, together we make a huge difference for the animals.

Situations like these are not uncommon at Talbot Humane. We do our very best for each animal entering our care. It is part of our mission to place every treatable and adoptable pet into a new forever home. But, to provide care for pets like Anastasia and Lilly is expensive. The medical bills for these 2 deserving pups have already risen to over $1,500. I’m sure you can guess, this will take a big bite out of our Shiloh Fund. This fund was created to provide special needs care beyond the basics to Talbot Humane animals.
This is where you come in.
We need your help today so we can provide care such as this to future Lillys and Anastasias. It is because of friends like you that we are able to fulfill our mission daily. Won’t you consider making a donation to our Shiloh Fund now? Your donation will save the life of the next special needs animal that comes through our doors.
Thank you for considering a tax deductible donation to Talbot Humane. Remember, if we each do a little, we can make an amazing difference for the animals together.
This Saturday May 18th, Talbots of Easton will be helping the animals of Talbot Humane! They will collect food and monetary donations all day to help feed and care for our pets during the winter months. We will be at the Talbottown Shopping Center from 11a-2p with information about our shelter, animals for adoption and goodies to give away! All customers who make a donation receive a discount on your purchase that day. We are excited to partner with Talbots, and we hope you choose to support businesses that give back to the community.
Bark in the Park brings the community together, raises awareness to the plight of homeless animals and is a wonderful day of fellowship among animal lovers. But, let’s face it- the funds raised are VITAL!

As of May 1, 2013 there were 86 felines in our care. Most of these are wonderful adult cats looking for a loving home. As cat lovers know, felines, when well cared for and living indoors can live to upwards of 15-20 years! So a 5 yr old cat still has so much to give. In an effort to place our adults before kittens season kicks into high gear we are offering all cats 5 years and older at the bargain adoption fee of only $5 for a limited time. All interested parties must still submit an adoption application and follow the regular process.
Remember, all of our cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, vaccinated- including the rabies vaccine, FeLV/FIV tested, wormed, receive flea and tick treatment and microchipped. Stop by and meet our cats Monday – Saturday after 11AM. We are sure you will fall in love! To see some of the many cats available at Talbot Humane, simply click HERE.
Many of us live busy lives. On our days off we like to spend the day with our pets, but, not always sitting at home! Talbot Humane thought our pet loving friends would like to see a list of local businesses who welcome not only you, but your pooch too! This is not a finite list, and it continues to grow! If you would like your business listed here please email Patty at email@example.com today!
It is a proven fact. Identification SAVES lives. According to the ASPCA Professional Blog, the rate of stray dogs and cats being returned to their owners/guardians “hovers between 10-30% for dogs and less than 5% for cats.” In Talbot county our rates are 37% and 5% respectively. This is a horribly low number! Your pets cannot tell us where they live, or, your phone number. We need owners to be proactive. Even the most responsible pet owner could have a pet go missing. Our goal is for every loved pet to be returned home when lost. But, for this, we need pet owner’s help!
Before disaster strikes- properly identifying your pet.
The best ID combination consists of a microchip, plus a pet license tag and a personalized tag hanging from the collar. Having just one form of ID may not work—pets can lose their collars or the microchip information may not be current in the local animal shelter licensing or national microchip databases. Even indoor-only animals need identification—in case someone leaves a door or window open and they escape unnoticed, for example. Pet ID is also important in case of an emergency or when disaster strikes your home or neighborhood. If there is a fire or a natural disaster, it may be necessary to evacuate your companion animals even if you are not home at the time.
If the worst happens
Call your local animal control agency, veterinary offices and neighbors immediately. Do not assume your beloved pet “will find their way home,” because the fact is, all too often they don’t. Make sure your microchip information is up to date annually, with current addresses and phone numbers. Purchase your county license annually. Talbot Humane keeps a database with every license sold. so many times animals are returned by the good citizens who find the pets- BECAUSE they are properly identified.
Take advantage of Talbot Humane’s Pet ID Services
