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!

Want to make a difference? Foster a pet!

babycatMany people don’t realize just how important our foster program is to the animals of Talbot Humane. It is a lifeline for animals which simply would not have a second chance without the love and attention given by these friends who open their homes to the homeless. There are many reasons why people foster. Maybe they do not have the lifestyle for a “full-time” pet. Maybe they are at the max number of pets as far as the expense but still have lots of love to give. Often these are people who simply want to find a special way to help the animals of Talbot Humane!

There are many ways to be a part of our foster program. Here are but a few:
  • Kitten season is approaching fast. We will be in need of foster homes for abandoned bottle babies.
  • Kittens eating on their own but too young to be adopted are often in need of TLC.  This is a great option for people who work during the day as are mommas with babies.
  • Dogs are you thing? We often have young pups in need of some training and TLC.
  • Dogs in need of a quiet home after special surgeries or heart worm treatment.
  • Dogs that are just not thriving in the shelter.
  • A really cool program is our Bedtime with Benji program which allows you to have the joy of a dog in your home evenings and weekends, and they come back to Talbot Humane during adoption hours to find a forever home!

Many people are concerned that they will want to keep all the animals, that they will become too attached.  Well, it’s true, you do love these sweet animals as your own, joyce and pupsand, there are often a few tears when it is time to say goodbye.  That heavy heart when they leave your care is quickly replaced with the happiness in knowing YOU saved a life and were the reason for a happy new beginning for that pet.

Our foster program IS the reason we have not had to euthanize a treatable, adoptable pet in over 5 years- Last year well over 350 animals benefited from our foster program- that is more than 26% of the animals that entered our facility!!! Interested in learning more on how you can be a life saver? Simply download the application now or contact us today at info@talbothumane.org or (410)822-0107. 

If we all do a little, together we truly make a huge difference for the animals of our community.

$10 Pet Microchip Special in April

What a deal- our microchip service fee has been cut IN HALF for a limited time! 

id saves livesAccording to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy (NCPPSP), less than 2 percent of cats and only 15 to 20 percent of dogs are returned to their owners. This is a sad statistic, but it’s true! Your dog and cat cannot tell us their name, address or phone number- that is without your help!

Talbot Humane wants to increase the chances of reunited lost pets and owners.  One safe and effective way to provide identification is through having your pet microchipped.  In recognition of Pet Identification Week April 20-26, Talbot Humane will be offering microchipping of your dog, cat or ferret for only $10 for the entire month of April. This includes the registration of your chip with HomeAgain, a new collar and an identification tag.  Now when was the last time you even purchased a collar for $10?

For more information or to schedule an appointment call (410)822-0107 today.
