The wonderful town of Oxford Maryland is once again holding their “Picket Fences” Auction. Each year local artists paint a picket fence in support of local non-profits! This year our artist is once again Mark Montoya! He created a true Eastern Shore scene called “All About Maryland”. This 2-sided beauty is on display at the Robert Morris Inn!

UNLEASHED for Talbot Humane is back and running local this Spring! UNLEASHED is in it’s 11th year of raising funds for the pets and programs served by Talbot Humane. This Spring we are running the St. Michaels Running Festival on May 20th. We are excited to invite the community- weekend warriors to confirmed couch potatoes to join us in taking ordinary people and helping them do extraordinary things for themselves and the animals.
Don’t let the idea of having never run, or having to raise funds stop you from coming out. We promise- you will be able to do both! We help you every step of the way with both training and fundraising. Remember, you can do anything you put your heart and mind to!
Saturday February 18th at 11A: Informational Meeting at Talbot Humane (cottage next door)
Saturday February 25th at 7A: First Day of Training- Rails to Trails parking lot next to TC Board of Education Building
Coretta Scott King once said “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”
This could not be more true than when we speak of our amazing supporters, volunteers and team members. This year, like so many recent ones, has been a year of the unknown. Increased number of animals entering our care- actually an 18.5% increase from 2021. Inflation making the cost of everything from toilet paper to kitty litter increase exponentially. We are seeing a larger need from the community for help from our intervention program with medical and behavioral needs.
Along with the struggles have been some pretty stellar moments too! We have witnessed almost 700 pets enter new homes between adoption and working with fellow 501.c.3 rescue groups. Our programs for intervention, spay/neuter and community outreach have grown- seeing more than 1,500 animals served! Our volunteers have remained a steadfast part of our success. Ensuring animals receive love and attention, giving time in the shelter and in the community, your dedication makes us a better organization.
Our ability to ride these waves and provide for pets and their people is only possible because of you. We know we could not do it all without the support of our humane community. Every single time we said “We need you!” you said “Here we are!” That is a priceless gift.
This holiday season we simply wish to say thank you. You have made our year better simply by being you.
From our team to yours, may your holiday season be filled with joy and laughter, dog kisses and cat hair, and hopefully some rest and rejuvenation for 2023.
