Meet us at the Rails to Trails parking lot off Springdale Street (next to Board of Education) at 7A. We will have a short course set up to show you “a day with UNLEASHED!” Coaches, alumni and newbies will all be there to share what makes the program so great.
Over the past 10 years this charity program has raised almost $400,000 for the animals served by Talbot Humane! Runners commit to raising funds in exchange for fully supported, non-competitive training to get you to the finish line of a half marathon!
We are thrilled to be continuing our Annual Cookie Walk tradition, albeit a little different than years prior. Our amazing volunteers will still be baking thousands of cookies for the animals. This year in an abundance of caution we will be pre-packing boxes which have been pre-ordered. Pick up will still be at The Easton Farmer’s Market on December 19th, 8a-11a.
Boxes are the same size as years prior: 1/2 LB box (small) $12 and 1 lb (large) $15.
We will have some other holiday items for sale the day of pick up too!
Last year Katie Rohe and her family found their new puppy was going to need surgery to correct severe hip dysplasia which would cost several thousand dollars. This was a period of stress and worry about their sweet pup, not to mention concerns about finding the funds to pay for such and expensive surgery. This is when Katie realized there are so many people and animals in the same position. Because of her experience and learning that many owners end up having to surrender these pets to their local shelters, Katie decided she was going to do something to help those animals not as fortunate as Whiskey. That’s when Whiskey’s Warriors was born!
The purpose of the Whiskey’s Warriors 5k is to help pet owners who cannot afford or fall short of the funds necessary to help pay for their pets’ medical needs, or to pay for the surgery of rescue pets who would have otherwise not been adopted, due to health issues. The funds will help Talbot Humane further our Intervention and Retention program to assist pet owners in our community with medical needs in order that they do not have to surrender their pets to the Talbot Humane.
The Race is set for the morning of September 21, 2019 in Easton, Maryland. Sponsorship opportunities, donations and of course runners and walkers are needed for year 1 of the race! For more information on the event, or to register, go to Another Level Fitness- Whiskey’s Warriors
Did someone say “clear the shelter?” Well that is exactly what we are striving to do on July 15th- with your help of course! We are working to place our many deserving pets into loving homes at our Annual Summer Adopt-A-Thon. Talbot Humane has waived ALL adoption fees that day for pets in our care. Regional rescues and humane societies have been invited to show pets for adoption as well!
The day will include:
food for sale
coupons to Head to Tail Thrift and Vintage for every visitor and more!
We encourage potential adopters to come prepared so we may process your applications in a timely manner. We will do our best to fulfill same day adoptions, but cannot promise this. You can help by being prepared:
bring your paperwork
that is get copies of your current pets’ vaccine history
if you rent, a copy of your lease stating you can have pets
be sure to have your photo ID with you
We hope you choose to spend the day with Talbot Humane and help us CLEAR THE SHELTER on July 15th!

Let’s add resilient.
Rescued Pomeranians will be the star of the show at Talbot Humane’s 7th Annual Bark in the Park festival on October 8th, when many of the more than 300 “Poms” who were saved from abuse and neglect this past spring in Wicomico County will reunite for POMapalooza! The Pomeranian Reunion, sponsored by Kevertin Pet Resort, is Talbot Humane’s chance to honor the Humane Society of Wicomico County for its outstanding rescue work and to thank the eight other animal welfare organizations that took in some of the Pomeranians, gave them medical care, grooming, socialization opportunities and then found them loving, new homes.
Through the cooperation of local animal welfare groups, over 250 of the rescued Pomeranians and dozens of their puppies who were born in the shelters that took them in, have been adopted. The remaining dogs are still under medical care at the Humane Society of Wicomico, and will likely be held pending criminal charges filed against the former owners of the dogs.
“The public was so engaged in this story and in the welfare of these Pomeranians, and so many animal welfare groups banded together to help, that we thought it would be fun to see them all back together healthy and happy with their new families,” said Patty Quimby, Talbot Humane Executive Director. Everyone who adopted one of the rescued Pomeranians from any of the shelters has been invited to join us for the reunion in the dog show ring. “They also will lead our annual Dog Parade, sponsored by Hair O’ The Dog Wine& Spirits,” Quimby said.
While many people gave the rescued Pomeranians a place to call home, many others across the Shore donated thousands of dollars in dog food and toys, cleaning supplies and monetary contributions. Groomers donated their time and resources, shaving and bathing the terribly matted and filthy dogs, clipping nails that were much too long, and cleaning ears and eyes. In addition, many veterinarians donated much-needed medical care for the dogs, including sorely needed dental work.
Everyone who supported the rescue the rescue of the dogs should come out to see Pomeranian Reunion. “It was a true community effort to help these Pomeranians,” Quimby said. “Now it’s time for us to celebrate and see these resilient little dogs living happily with their new families.”
Although Pomeranians are our special guests this year, all dogs are encouraged to bring their people out to Bark in the Park. The festival is a wonderful opportunity for people to spend some quality time with their “best friends” and help raise much needed funds for Talbot Humane. Join in the annual Dog Parade, 5K Run/Walk, and fun Dog Show, with classes like Tallest Dog, Smallest Dog, Fluffiest Dog and more. Register for all events here: 7th Annual Bark in the Park
Also new this year is Talbot Humane’s commitment to serving food that is humanely raised and sustainability grown. Featured food vendors include the Sprout Food Truck, Rise Up Coffee, Jamie’s Catering serving pulled pork from Pop’s Old Place, Highland Creamery, and more. Talbot Humane will launch new efforts at Bark in the Park to promote local food producers who are humanely raising animals. Please plan to try what’s new on our menu this year for breakfast and/or lunch!
Other festival features are: the day starts with a 5K fun run on Easton’s beautiful Rails to Trails sponsored by Tricycle and Run; the Pawrade of Adoptable Dogs from many area animal welfare organizations; The Pet Boutique, sponsored by St. Michaels Pet Supplies, featuring their stores must-have pet items; agility and other canine demonstrations; groomers from Kevertin Pet Resort; veterinarians and animal welfare groups; business and craft vendors; live music from Three Penny Opera; and a kid’s agility course. All dogs must be leashed.
Admission is free to Bark in the Park, held at Idlewild Park in Easton, October 8th from 8 am-noon. The public can register for the Dog Parade, 5K Fun Run/Walk and the Fun Dog Show online here: 7th Annual Bark in the Park. All proceeds benefit the animals and programs at Talbot Humane.
Author Gail Buchalter has written a page turner, “Friday Nigh Fighters” is a fictional tale about a forensic veterinarian and her fight for justice for those without a voice, set right here on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
Gail Buchalter is an award-winning journalist who was a staff writer for People magazine and a contributing editor at Parade magazine for 20 years, and arguably one of the longest surviving freelancers at Forbes magazine. She wrote about film, television and recording artists, sports figures and her true love – animals. Gail was born and raised in Manhattan, lived in Nashville, Los Angeles and Southampton, NY, before moving to rural Maryland, where she opened a yoga studio in 2002. A board member of the local humane society, she was also instrumental in helping create a low-cost feral cat spay/neuter organization. She has adopted and fostered numerous cats and dogs, and today lives with her three dogs and two cats on several acres in the woods.
“I could not conceptualize how someone could write a fictional book about pit bull fighting that people would want to read, but Gail Buchalter nailed it! She accurately portrays the medical, forensic and legal aspects of the work through characters that are fantastic and funny – I found myself laughing out loud at times – and could not wait to learn more about them. She has created an intriguing, gritty mystery with a heartwarming story about animals and the people who work to protect them. An outstanding accomplishment!” — Melinda Merck, DVM, Owner of Veterinary Forensics Consulting, LLC, Austin, TX, who assisted with the prosecution of NFL quarterback Michael Vick.
“This is a great read told from the perspective of the forensic veterinarian who has seen it all. Her voice grabs you immediately, from the description of when the doctor first meets Ella, an abused pit bull she adopts, to the emotions involved in investigating these horrid acts of cruelty and violence. There are many factual pieces woven into this gripping story. It has all the elements of a fascinating read: love, hate, crime, animals, and a heroine working for the greater good!” — Patty Crankshaw-Quimby, Executive Director Talbot Humane; President, Professional Animal Workers of Maryland, Inc.
