Can you believe we will soon be celebrating our 5th Annual Bark in the Park Family Festival? While this is our biggest fundraiser of the year, it is also an amazing day of entertainment and fellowship among the animal lovers of our community. This event has become the most fun you can have with your pooch on the mid shore each October! We love that so many dogs bring out their owners to support the mission of Talbot Humane. This year we are combining our traditional fun with some new and exciting events on October 18th!
I bet many of you skimmed through the Guinness Book of World Records as a kid and thought, “how cool would it be to get in this book?” Well, here is a chance for you and your dog to make history with Talbot Humane. We want you to break out the canine costumes for this year’s Festival! We have obtained permission to attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the largest number of dogs in a costume parade. This parade will be our Dog Walk for the event and is sponsored by Hair O’ The Dog. If the current record of 337 dogs is broken, then indeed each dog is a World Record Dog- now that is something to bark about! Per Guinness rules all dogs must be healthy, be in a costume of at least two pieces, and only one dog is allowed per handler. Preregistration is $25 and is strongly encouraged. This can be done by clicking here and registering online NOW or printing the BITP Event Registration Form and submitting to Talbot Humane with your payment!
We adopted him from you three years ago. I don’t know if you remember, but he and his brother were called “snuggly” and “wuggley” or something similar. We now split his time between Bonita Springs, FL, and Bowie, MD. His mentor and BFF, Mike the JRT, passed away at 14 of Hemangiosarcoma. So he is our only boy, and according to my son, the MOST spoiled dog he has ever seen. He is well trained and gets along well with others. He even gets a gold star for leaving the bunny rabbits and squirrels alone with the command “leave it.”
You would be proud of him. He is a beautiful specimen of an animal in perfect health.

Part of our mission at Talbot Humane is to promote humane care of all animals through educational opportunities. Thanks to the cooperation of the public and private schools in Talbot county and our youth volunteer opportunities, we have been able to reach tens of thousands of children over the past 15 years. This year we are very proud to present our first Talbot Humane Outstanding Youth Volunteer Scholarship Award to Kristianna Saelens. Kristianna interned with Talbot Humane for the 2013-14 school year. She continued on as an important part of our volunteer team even after her internship was completed in February.
This scholarship is completely funded by donors who earmark their gifts for this program. Eligibility for this annual scholarship, gifted to a high school senior are as follows: the student must be a Talbot county resident, must have shown themselves to be an ambassador for the animals of our community through volunteering or internships with Talbot Humane, and must be planning to attend a 2 or 4 year school with a concentration in one of the animal sciences in the fall of the granting year. Scholarship applications will be reviewed by committee in April and awarded in May of each year.
For more information on Talbot Humane’s youth opportunities, or to make a donation toward the scholarship fund contact Susan Langfitt at firstname.lastname@example.org today.
