5th Annual Adopt-A-Thon BowWowMeow Luau

Adopt-a-thon 14

Each year this is an AMAZING day for the animals!  In an effort to place the more than 200 animals in our care into good homes, we cut our adoption fees!  We know bringing a new pet home is an expense when you need new bowls, litter pans, food, toys and a veterinary needs.  Our goal, to help our adopters and the animals all at once!

ONE DAY ONLY.  These discounts are non-transferable to later date.  Applications must be for an animal currently available for adoption and adoption must be completed on, or application must be submitted on August 2nd.

Going for Guinness! Talbot Humane’s Bark in the Park is shooting for the stars!

Bark in the Park 2012Can 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!

A Happy Life!

happy dog ikey

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.
Thanks again.

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.
