The funds we raise from this event will help us purchase a new washer and dryer at Talbot Humane. Only 2 weeks into the new year our washing machine died- for the last time. The dryer has also been on it’s last tumble for some dog laundrytime and staff has been nursing the machine along. It is quite an expense- for purchase, removal of the old machines and installation of the new ones we are looking at an unexpected expense of $10,000- so you can see every dollar makes a difference!

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.
