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!

9 Lives for $9 – Feline Frenzy at Talbot Humane

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.

Happy Tails
