Talbot Humane and Talbot County Animal Control would like to remind citizens during the times of high winds, heavy rain and potential flooding to PLEASE bring your pets indoors. Talbot Humane will lend crates to those in need during this time. Do not leave dogs tethered out or in confined areas such as kennels, sheds or any other structure which may flood or collapse. Please keep cats indoors during and after the event. Animals suffer from stress just as humans during extremes and may behave erratically, or not recognize their surroundings. If you see a problem within Talbot County, please contact our office at (410)822-0107.
You will want to contact friends or family outside of the immediate danger area to stay. Contact local hotels to see if they are pet friendly, or will waive their policy during an emergency. In Easton the following hotels will accommodate pet owners- Tidewater Inn, Days Inn, Comfort Inn and Inn at 202 Dover. These businesses ask that owners call in advance to find out their requirements.
In the event the Social Services Shelter at Easton High School is opened, the Talbot Animal Disaster Services shelter will also open to house pets for those residing in the shelter. Please be advised this shelter IS NOT a drop off for your pets- it is only for those residents living in the shelter. This shelter should also be used as a means of last resort- it will be stressful for you and your pets.
Amy Eutsey is no stranger to Talbot Humane. In December of 2011 she joined forces with fellow volunteer Julie Fickes to create our very successful and life changing program UNLEASHED. She has been an important part of our volunteer force since!
Earlier this year Amy joined the staff of Talbot Humane as our part time data entry assistant. When Susan Langfitt, long time Volunteer and Community Events Coordinator, shared her interest in concentrating on fundraising and development, Amy was an immediate choice to work with the volunteers.
“Susan has left big shoes to fill. I am excited to work with the dedicated volunteers,” shares Amy. “I love working with and inspiring people, and being a part of the team of Talbot Humane.”
We are thrilled to have Amy join us. “She has a gentle and friendly nature, is super organized and is committed to the mission of Talbot Humane,” states director Patty Quimby. “We are all excited to have Amy as part of the team.”
Interested in joining the volunteer family at Talbot Humane? Stop by to meet Amy, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
To each of you who adopt, donate, volunteer, network, share our pets on social media, foster, or spread the good news of what we do, YOU SAVE LIVES. Here’s to 2015 being the best year yet for the animals of our community!
EASTON MIDDLE SCHOOL PRESENTS HIT BROADWAY MUSICAL ANNIE
Under the direction of Richard A. Vitanovec, Easton Middle School proudly presents the Broadway musical Annie. Show dates are January 23, 24, 30, and 31 at 7:00 pm and January 25 at 2:00 pm at the Easton High School Auditorium. This is the 10th anniversary of Vitanovec’s first musical at Easton Middle School, which was Annie back in 2004. This production involves over 50 students from 3rd grade through 12th grade, as well as some Easton Middle School faculty.
To give his students a unique experience, Vitanovec was also able to contact Bill Berloni, animal trainer for Broadway and Hollywood, and he will be bringing one of his dogs, Mikey, to play “Sandy” in the production. Mikey played “Sandy” in the 30th Anniversary National Tour of Annie and was the “Sandy” understudy on Broadway. Berloni will be coming with Mikey to work with the cast. He has trained ALL of the “Sandys” on Broadway as well as the Sandy in the newest movie of Annie that came out this past December. The students and Vitanovec are very excited about this once in a lifetime opportunity.
This is a big-hearted musical for the whole family. Come see Annie January 23, 24, 30 and 31 at 7:00 pm and January 25 at 2:00 pm at Easton High School Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children/students. Advance tickets can be purchased at Easton Middle School, Crackerjacks, Little Rascals, Reeser’s Pharmacy, and Rise Up Coffee Roasters on Dover Street.
“SANDY’S PANTRY”- Bring 4+ cans of cat/dog food or a bag of cat/dog food to the show and you will be entered in a raffle for a special prize. The cat and dog food will be donated to Talbot Humane to help all the “Sandys” that find their way there.
Yes, it’s true! Thanks to a grant from the Maryland Department of Agriculture Talbot Humane is able to provide FREE spay/neuter services- including vaccinations- at no cost to the pet owner while funds last.
Can you even believe 2015 is almost here? Well, Talbot Humane’s Charity Running Program UNLEASHED will be running into the new year with hopes of changing more lives- human and animal!
UNLEASHED is a 6-month physical conditioning program geared at both beginners and experienced runners. More than 100,000 marathoners have used the training method that Unleashed is based on, with 98% success! The training combines running with regular walk breaks to help you build endurance. You will start out with a slow 3-mile run and gradually increase your distance each Saturday during group runs. Each week you will see your progress and really appreciate how far you’ve come! Generally, new runners start out with half marathon training. Returning runners often opt to train for a full marathon!
Often it isn’t the idea of running that deters potential team members, it is the fundraising aspect. One of our biggest doubters last year, who stressed that she was not going to raise her $500 goal actually turned out to be our biggest fundraiser of the season! We will guide you through your fundraising and make it fun and easy to reach all of your goals- physical and financial!

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Why not choose to help the animals of Talbot Humane on #GivingTuesday as part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity?
We hope you join Talbot Humane in making a difference for our community on #GivingTuesday. When we all do our part, we make an amazing difference together.
