Students Making a Difference- 3rd Annual Womanless Beauty Pageant

For the 3rd year our Talbot County high school guys are being GREAT sports and leaping out of their comfort zones for the animals in need! Come see a hilarious evening for the 3rd Annual Womanless Beauty Pageant! Each young man has a “coach” to show them the ropes, help them with their talent competition and make them beauties.

We know all of the students involved are truly beautiful inside and out for spending their time to raise funds for the animals of Talbot Humane. There are 2 winners that evening, Judges Choice and People’s Choice- that means YOU help choose with your donations! So bring some cash and be ready to pick your favorite contestant!

Have a Plan for your Pets!

Talbot Humane and Talbot County Animal Control would like to remind citizens during the times of high winds, heavy rain and potential flooding to PLEASE bring your pets indoors. Talbot Humane will lend crates to those in need during this time. Do not leave dogs tethered out or in confined areas such as kennels, sheds or any other structure which may flood or collapse. Please keep cats indoors during and after the event. Animals suffer from stress just as humans during extremes and may behave erratically, or not recognize their surroundings. If you see a problem within Talbot County, please contact our office at (410)822-0107.

If you are in a danger zone, please plan to leave well in advance of the impending weather event.

You will want to contact friends or family outside of the immediate danger area to stay. Contact local hotels to see if they are pet friendly, or will waive their policy during an emergency. In Easton the following hotels will accommodate pet owners- Tidewater Inn, Days Inn, Comfort Inn and Inn at 202 Dover. These businesses ask that owners call in advance to find out their requirements.

In the event the Social Services Shelter at Easton High School is opened, the Talbot Animal Disaster Services shelter will also open to house pets for those residing in the shelter. Please be advised this shelter IS NOT a drop off for your pets- it is only for those residents living in the shelter. This shelter should also be used as a means of last resort- it will be stressful for you and your pets.

When evacuating your home with pets, owners should bring the following items:

  • A crate or carrier for each pet

  • Medical records, a photo, veterinarians name and number, and any medication for each pet

  • Food for 3 days for each pet

  • Bedding, litter, cleaning supplies for each pet

  • Sturdy leashes, toys and any special items needed for your pet

Pets suffer from stress during these times just like you and me. The best way to protect you and your pets is to be prepared. Have a plan, and do not wait until the last minute to act.

Local Production of “Annie” to Help the Animals of Talbot Humane

annieEASTON MIDDLE SCHOOL PRESENTS HIT BROADWAY MUSICAL ANNIE

Under the direction of Richard A. Vitanovec, Easton Middle School proudly presents the Broadway musical Annie. Show dates are January 23, 24, 30, and 31 at 7:00 pm and January 25 at 2:00 pm at the Easton High School Auditorium. This is the 10th anniversary of Vitanovec’s first musical at Easton Middle School, which was Annie back in 2004. This production involves over 50 students from 3rd grade through 12th grade, as well as some Easton Middle School faculty.

To give his students a unique experience, Vitanovec was also able to contact Bill Berloni, animal trainer for Broadway and Hollywood, and he will be bringing one of his dogs, Mikey, to play “Sandy” in the production. Mikey played “Sandy” in the 30th Anniversary National Tour of Annie and was the “Sandy” understudy on Broadway. Berloni will be coming with Mikey to work with the cast. He has trained ALL of the “Sandys” on Broadway as well as the Sandy in the newest movie of Annie that came out this past December. The students and Vitanovec are very excited about this once in a lifetime opportunity.

This is a big-hearted musical for the whole family. Come see Annie January 23, 24, 30 and 31 at 7:00 pm and January 25 at 2:00 pm at Easton High School Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children/students. Advance tickets can be purchased at Easton Middle School, Crackerjacks, Little Rascals, Reeser’s Pharmacy, and Rise Up Coffee Roasters on Dover Street.

“SANDY’S PANTRY”- Bring 4+ cans of cat/dog food or a bag of cat/dog food to the show and you will be entered in a raffle for a special prize. The cat and dog food will be donated to Talbot Humane to help all the “Sandys” that find their way there.

Pit bull spay & neuter – FOR FREE!

PittiePupsGirlsYes, it’s true!  Thanks to a grant from the Maryland Department of Agriculture Talbot Humane is able to provide FREE spay/neuter services- including vaccinations- at no cost to the pet owner while funds last. 

Did you know:
  • 58% of ALL dogs entering U.S. animal shelters are pit bull or pit bull mixes?
  • The average cost to PROPERLY care for a litter of puppies (average litter 5 -9 puppies) is well over that which you will “make” from the sale of the puppies.  This cost rises greatly if the mother is unable to nurse or there are any medical complications.
  • Dog flippers, hoarders and fighters scour social media and free to good home ads for animals which often end up abused and neglected.
Show your dog you love them, have them spayed or neutered! 
If you are a Talbot County resident in need of spay/neuter services for your pit bull or pit bull mix type dog contact our office TODAY! 

It’s All About the Felines at Talbot Humane!

adopt furrlicityDue to the overwhelming number of cats and kittens still in our care, Talbot Humane has drastically cut the fees for adoptions through the end of 2014!  All felines young and old, big and small have an adoption fee of only $10! This is in an effort to help the adopters with the costs associated with a new pet- wellness visit at the vet, food, toys, beds, litter pans etc., and to help find our beloved kitties new forever homes.  The application process remains the same, so apply today! The process takes 1-2 business days (often less!) Stop by today and fall in love with one of our MANY sweet cats.  Visitation at our adoption center begins daily at 11AM, or stop by PetSmart of Easton to visit with those at the Cat Adoption Center inside the store.

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!
