Hair O’ the Dog- Wine Making a Difference for the Animals

hair of the dogLocal friends know, Hair O’ The Dog in Easton is always doing something to give back to the community.  As major supporters of our efforts at Talbot Humane they once again are selling Talbot Humane wine to help the animals! “The Petro’s are great friends to the animals- we are blessed to have Joe as a volunteer board member and supporter at Talbot Humane,” shares Patty Quimby, Talbot Humane Executive Director.  The wines, reasonably priced at $13.49 for “Top Dogs” give $1 per bottle back to the animals.

  • Pinot Grigio – A full bodied Pinot Grigio with lots of pizazz and tropical fruit notes. Great for that holiday party.
  • Chardonnay – A charming sipper, this Chardonnay is loaded with notes of vanilla and butter. Perfect for that New Year’s Eve lobster dinner.
  • Red Blend – Smooth Bordeaux style red blend from California with rich black fruit with well integrated tannins. Just the ticket for that leg of lamb or pork roast for Christmas dinner.
  • Cabernet Sauvignon – A big & bold Cabernet Sauvignon from California that has complex fruit notes with hints of cocoa. Having prime rib roast for holiday dinner then look no further.

For more information or to purchase these wines, visit Hair O’ The Dog at 219 Marlboro Avenue, Easton across from the Kohls parking lot.

 

 

Fred’s Fight Memorial Fund to Help Feed the Animals of Talbot Humane

Wilson family donation

Pictured here with Patty Quimby, Executive Director of Talbot Humane are Georgianna Hock, Hannah Hock, Emily Hock, Sydney Wilson, and Parker Wilson.

Fred Wilson was a very special man.  I feel blessed to have had the pleasure of knowing him.  His gentle nature and smile were always present. This was so clear in his love for animals and his grandchildren.  Mr. Fred lost his battle with cancer in August of this year, but, his love for animals will now live on thanks to the generosity of his family. 

The granddaughters of Frederick Wilson presented me with a donation in memory of their grandfather to kick off a “Fred’s Fight” Memorial Fund. When their grandmother Rebecca Wilson asked what they would like the money to do, they all said “feed the homeless animals.”  Their hope- for friends of Mr. Fred’s and friends to the animals to make donations to ensure the animals sheltered at Talbot Humane are always fed, warm and cared for.  

We thank the Wilson Family for there support, and know their generosity and love will make a lasting difference in the lives of the animals of Talbot Humane. 

For the animals,

Patty Quimby

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.

Lives are saved thanks to friends like you!

 

At the end of April, Anastasia, a 1yr old Parsons Terrier arrived  at Talbot Humane.  Stray, scared and very pregnant, our staff provided for her and gave her extra TLC each day.  Unfortunately like so many other animals that come through our doors, no one ever came searching for this sweet girl.
Last Friday morning Anastasia went into labor and staff anxiously awaited the new arrivals.  Very quickly we realized something was wrong and rushed her to the veterinarian.  While the puppies could not be saved, the doctors at Veterinary Medical Center saved Anastasia’s life.  The happy ending is she is recovering at Talbot Humane and has a new family waiting for her once she is well enough to go home.This week Officer Brittingham received a call after hours for a dog with severe injuries dueto a scuffle with a neighbor’s pet.   Lilly, the black lab mix was not doing well and the owner could not afford veterinary treatment.  Wanting what was best for her dog, the owner surrendered Lilly to Talbot Humane.

Officer Brittingham rushed Lilly to Veterinary Medical Center where they quickly went to work, cleaning her wounds, inserting drains and starting her on antibiotics.  She is expected to make a full recovery.

Situations like these are not uncommon at Talbot Humane.  We do our very best for each animal entering our care.  It is part of our mission to  place every treatable and adoptable pet into a new forever home.  But, to provide care for pets like Anastasia and Lilly is expensive.  The medical bills for these 2 deserving pups have already risen to over $1,500. I’m sure you can guess, this will take a big bite out of our Shiloh Fund. This fund was created to provide special needs care beyond the basics to Talbot Humane animals.

This is where you come in.

We need your help today so we can provide care such as this to future Lillys and Anastasias.  It is because of friends like you that we are able to fulfill our mission daily.  Won’t you consider making a donation to our Shiloh Fund now?  Your donation will save the life of the next special needs animal that comes through our  doors.

Thank you for considering a tax deductible donation to Talbot Humane.  Remember, if we each do a little, we can make an amazing difference for the animals together.

For the Animals,

Patty Crankshaw-Quimby

Talbot Humane Pet Pantry Celebrates 5th Year!

Simply amazing.  Those are really the only words to describe the community support to help feed hungry pets in our area.  When Talbot Humane began our Pet Pantry in 2008, we really had no idea it would take off in such a fabulous way.  Our goal was simple, to help  owners who are faced with the prospect of surrendering their pets because they can no longer afford to purchase food. Many needy families in our community are loving pet owners, but, may be having a difficult time providing food for both their families and their pets during these trying financial times.

When we started we had a few pantry users.  Within one year we were serving close to 100 friends in the community, and these numbers continue to grow.  Today dispensing more than 2 tons of food annually, this program is truly life saving.  The beauty of this program is that every bag and can of food has been donated by our generous community.  We have even had friends who used the pantry, donate back once they have gotten on their feet.  Others have chosen to volunteer with Talbot Humane so they can give back too.

Over the past 5 years, we have seen pet pantries open in shelters in our surrounding counties.  We now even have a group who’s sole goal is to collect food for the shelter pantries- Pet Pantries of Caroline, Dorchester, and Talbot Counties.  Our work isn’t done yet.  There are still days where we are down to only a few bags of food on our shelves.  We are always accepting dry dog and cat food for the Talbot Humane Pet Pantry.  Great thanks is owed to everyone who has donated to this project.

Thank you friends for all you do.  This is just one more example, if we each do a little, together we truly make a major difference for the animals.

For the animals,

Patty Crankshaw-Quimby

Live your life UNLEASHED- Get ready for St. Michaels and Beyond

May 18th may seem far away, but, it will be here before we know it!  What’s May 18th you ask?  It’s the 2nd Annual St. Michaels Running Festival of course!  This year, not only has Talbot Humane created a fundraising team  to receive a portion of the registration fees, but, we will be training a new group of friends to get UNLEASHED!  Couch potato to seasoned runner- we want you ALL!

For novice runners and first-time marathoners, UNLEASHED offers the popular run:walk training method of just two 30-45 minute runs on your own during the week and one long group run on Saturday mornings that gradually builds, mile by mile, to the full racing distance. All run:walk training is non-competitive, supportive and done at your pace!

Walkers come out and receive some one on one training to build your endurance, and get you to your mileage goal- you know, walkers can join the 5K or 10K events too!

For repeat marathoners and experienced runners, we offer all the amenities of the run:walk program, plus coaching support to help you improve your personal record.

Your commitment for training is the cost of the team shirt (412) and a “Get or Give” of $100 in fundraising for Talbot Humane.  This is a DEAL for the many weeks of training and support leading up to the festival.  Not to mention the team building and new friendships you will undoubtedly make.

For the Training Schedule for the St Michaels Running Festival, please click HERE! Just want to see what it is all about?  Come out to Idlewild Park by the tennis courts on Saturday March 23rd at 7a.  (or any Saturday following!) We would love to have you join us for a “trial run”- we just know you will be hooked! 

For more information on how to LIVE UNLEASHED with Talbot Humane, email us at info@talbothumane.org or call (410)822-0107.
