100 Cat Challenge at Talbot Humane

Once again Tkittens for adoption at Talbot Humanealbot Humane is going CAT CRAZY with a 100 Feline Challenge to the community. The goal- to place 100 cats and kittens into new forever homes by September 30th. Waiving the usual adoption fee which ranges from $25-$75, during this challenge the adoption fee is to donate cat or kitten food to help provide care for the many cats still in need of a new home. Our cat population has remained over 200 for most of the summer.  Our hope is to bring awareness to the plight of cats and kittens in our area as well as find homes for the many homeless pets waiting at Talbot Humane. All cats and kittens are altered, vaccinated, tested for FeLV/FIV and microchipped prior to adoption.  So, as you can see, you are not only finding a new best friend, but, you have saved $250-400 verses that cat or kitten “Free to a good home” in the paper.  For more information on one of the many pets for adoption or on how you can volunteer, contact Talbot Humane at (410)822-0107.

Cinco De CAT-O at Talbot Humane

As of May 1, 2013 there were 86 felines in our care.  Most of these are wonderful adult cats looking for a loving home.  As cat lovers know, felines, when well cared for and living indoors can live to upwards of 15-20 years!  So a 5 yr old cat still has so much to give.  In an effort to place our adults before kittens season kicks into high gear we are offering all cats 5 years and older at the bargain adoption fee of only $5 for a limited time.  All interested parties must still submit an adoption application and follow the regular process.

Remember, all of our cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, vaccinated- including the rabies vaccine, FeLV/FIV tested, wormed, receive flea and tick treatment and microchipped.  Stop by and meet our cats Monday – Saturday after 11AM.  We are sure you will fall in love!  To see some of the many cats available at Talbot Humane, simply click HERE.

 

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.
