They are described by the American Kennel Club as intelligent, inquisitive, cocky, commanding and animated.
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.

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.
Talbot Humane Launches Shoe Collection Drive to Raise Money for Shiloh Fund
Shoe donations will benefit shelter animals and micro-enterprises in developing nations and reduce what goes into landfills
Volunteers from St. Vincent De Paul have already begun delivering shoes for this project. Talbot Humane is proud of our community partnerships to improve the lives of not only animals but the citizens of our community!
Easton, MD, March 10, 2016: Talbot Humane is conducting a shoe collection drive from March 15-May 15 to raise money for the Shiloh Fund, an emergency fund the shelter maintains to pay for unexpected medical expenses, such as surgeries, lengthy vet stays or costly medicines. The Shiloh Fund is central to Talbot Humane’s ability to save the lives of injured and sick animals that many open admission shelters would have to euthanize and No Kill shelters may turn away. Talbot Humane will earn funds based on the number of pairs of shoes collected. If we fill 100 bags with 25 pair of shoes each, we will raise $1,000 for the Shiloh Fund. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used or new shoes at Talbot Humane on Rt. 50 in Easton.
All donated shoes will be purchased by Funds2Orgs and then redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of microenterprise partners in developing nations. Funds2Orgs helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from the shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school.
“We are excited about our shoe drive,” said Patty Quimby, Executive Director at Talbot Humane. “We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like donate to us to help our shelter animals and to help those less fortunate become self-sufficient. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
If you have a group or organization that would like to collect 25 pairs of shoes to fill one of our bags, please contact Susan Langfitt, Fundraising Coordinator at Talbot Humane at 410-822-0107 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
