Nelson Coleman Jewelers Gives Back


Nelson Coleman Jewelers, located in Downtown Easton 22 N Washington St., is joining forces to make a difference for the animals! Talbot Humane is one of their charity partners for the Nelson Coleman Enrichment Program. This program is pretty amazing! They commit to donating up 10% of your retail purchase towards an organization or charity of your choice. All you have to do when you go in and shop is say you want Talbot Humane to receive the donation, it is THAT simple! We are thankful for friends like Nelson Coleman who commits to giving back to the community every day.  https://nelsoncoleman.com/

It’s Hot and we need YOU!

A casualty of an old building, our dog kennel air conditioning unit has cooled it’s final summer. We have spent several thousand dollars this summer trying to keep it going, and just this week spent over $2,200 on mobile air units to keep the dogs comfortable.

We appreciate you and know just how much you care about the animals of Talbot Humane. In the current economy everything costs more for all of us, from dog food to electricity! If you are interested in helping us offset these costs during this very challenging time please visit our donation page:


5th Annual PetParazzi Calendar Contest

The Mid Shore’s original pet photo contest is back! Talbot Humane’s 5th annual photo calendar contest, Petparazzi, offers pet lovers the opportunity to enter their dogs, cats, or other small companion animals in a photo competition while raising funds for the shelter’s animal care and community outreach services.


Participants may enter their pets online beginning July 1st to August 31st! Using email and social media, entrants urge their family, friends, and co-workers to “vote” with their dollars for their pet on the contest website. The top dogs, cats, and other companion animals who receive the most votes in their respective categories at the end of the contest will be featured as a Pet of the Month in the 2024 Talbot Humane Petparazzi Calendar. The pet who raises the most funds overall in the voting will also appear on the cover of the calendar. The entry fee of $30 is considered a tax-deductible donation to Talbot Humane and includes a copy of the 2024 calendar with each entry.

Pets entered in the contest are not limited to Talbot Humane alumni, or even to Talbot County; all pets are welcome!


In its first four years, through the generous support of our community, the Petparrazzi calendar contest raised over $67,000 for the animals of Talbot Humane and community outreach. For more information, or to enter your pet in the contest starting July 1st visit https://www.gogophotocontest.com/talbothumane2024
