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

Pawsitive Change Coming to Talbot County Elementary Schools

Emma LangfittPawsitive Change- In More Ways Than One…

We all have it. Loose change on the floor of our cars. Random coins buried between sofa cushions. Jars full of change we empty nightly from our pockets. These scattered coins may not seem like much, but when pooled together, loose change could mean the difference between life and death for a shelter animal at Talbot Humane.

Pawsitive Change, a community service project organized and managed by a group of 35 students from Easton High and St. Michaels High schools, will give students in all five TCPS elementary schools a place to bring spare change that will greatly benefit shelter animals. They also will be collecting canned cat and dog food. It will kick-off on Monday, Dec. 2 and run through Wednesday, Dec. 18. The Pawsitive Change project will benefit the Shiloh Fund at Talbot Humane, which allows the shelter to provide emergency medical treatment to animals that arrive at the shelter in desperate need of care above and beyond what shelters are usually able to provide. Supporting the Shiloh Fund is a great start to the holiday season of caring for and giving to others.

The Pawsitive Change project is spearheaded by EHS Sophomore Emma Langfitt, a Talbot Humane volunteer who was looking for a way to do more for the shelter animals. Emma researched and developed the program, proposed it to interim TCPS Superintendent Kelly Griffith, and when the project was approved, she solicited the help of other TCPS high school students. Alumni from Chapel, Easton, St. Michaels, Tilghman and White Marsh elementary schools will return to their old stomping grounds to talk to the younger students about what Talbot Humane does for homeless and unwanted animals in our community, and to encourage them to bring in spare change, if they can, to support the shelter. Collection cans will be placed in each elementary school classroom from Dec. 2-18. High school students will visit each classroom twice to talk to elementary students about exactly what they are raising money for and to explain that the canned food they collect will fill Talbot Humane’s pet pantry, which provides cat and dog food to people who can no longer afford to feed their animals.

The classroom that collects the most money for the Shiloh Fund will win a visit from Talbot Humane and Pawsitive Change t-shirts for the whole class.

The Shiloh Fund has helped Talbot Humane save the lives of animals such as Justice, a puppy who arrived at the shelter last winter with a leg so badly broken it needed amputation. It also helped Lily, a beautiful black lab, who came in with puncture wounds to her face and neck that needed to be drained in order to heal, and Black Pearl, a 4-month-old kitten who came to Talbot Humane with a ruptured eye that needed to be removed. The cost of these treatments is not in the normal operating budget, but because of the Shiloh Fund, their lives were saved. All of these animals are now living happy and healthy lives with their adoptive families.

EHS students returning to Chapel Elementary include: Lauren Hellman (lead), Sarah Baynard, Amelia Gunn, Sarah Fauver, Cameron Larrimore, Annie Lentz, Cassie Midcap, and Tori Weems.
