Keeping Loved Pets in Their Homes- Pet Retention Program at Talbot Humane

While our mission speaks to preventing pet overpopulation, preventing acts of cruelty and neglect and providing a safe haven for animals of our community, another important goal is pet retention. All too often pet owners do not reach out to their local shelters, trainers or veterinarians. Talbot Humane wishes to be a resource for pet owners.

 

In cooperation with our local veterinarians, trainers and other animal related resources in our area, our hope is to offer solutions in order to help loved pets stay in their homes.  Issues such as inability to afford acute medical care, litter box issues, inappropriate barking, destructive behavior, socialization, even life circumstance changes which may lead owners to need some assistance with feeding and care for a period of time. Our ultimate goal- pets stay in the home and reduce the number of animals entering local shelters. 

 

If you are a pet owner experiencing problems and are in need of guidance or have considered surrendering a pet due to life circumstances please contact us today. Please email Dayniese Hurley at Dayniese@talbothumane.org or call (410)822-0107 and state that you are calling regarding tour retention services. We want to help keep the 2 and 4 legged members of your family together!

Talbot Humane is so proud to announce we have joined forces with fellow Maryland  humane and animal control facilities to place 2,000 cats and kittens in new homes during the month of July!  Fees will be waived at all of these facilities and each one will have other special incentives. 

For the month of July, Talbot Humane FELINE adopters will receive:
  • No adoption fee
  • Free post adoption wellness exams from participating veterinarians:  All Pets Veterinary Hospital, Easton Veterinary Clinic, Community Animal Hospital, Mid-Atlantic Cat Hospital, Spay Now, Inc., Pet Health Clinic.
  • Starter bag of food
  • Cat goodie bag

 

Our open admission shelter could not do all we do without the support of adopters, donors, volunteers and well wishers.  If you are considering adoption of a new cat or kitten, July is the right time to fall in love! We can’t wait to break this number and place these needy pets in loving homes, with your help!

Imagine waking on January 1, 2017 and the cages and kennels of Talbot Humane being almost bare… Would that not be the MOST amazing way to begin the New Year? Well, our staff and volunteers are going to do our best to make this a reality for the more than 170 pets in our care at this time!  

Warm bed. Full belly. Love. Care. They don’t ask for much from us and what they give us in return is immeasurable. 

Here’s the deal for the rest of 2016:

  • Felines are FEE FREE
  • Dogs of all ages adoption fee 1/2 off
  • All small mammals and exotics adoption fee 1/2 off
  • Visit our pets at Talbot Humane, PetSmart of Easton, or PetValu of Easton
  • Check our social media pages, Facebook and Twitter for the Pet of the Day all month long to see and learn more about each animal.

When we speak to our staff and volunteers, some of our fondest holiday memories included adding a new friend to the family during the holidays. Our lives are that much richer when we share our hearts with those who love so unconditionally.  

We welcome you to visit us Monday-Saturday through the holiday season, if nothing else allow us the opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support for our mission and values at Talbot Humane.  We appreciate all you do, and, we know without you we would nothing.
