Talbot Humane provides a safe and healthy environment for unwanted companion animals in its care; places adoptable companion animals in good homes; protects all animals from cruelty and neglect; and reduces the unwanted companion animal population through spay/neuter and educational services in Talbot County, Maryland.Serving the Community for more than 80 years!Talbot Humane has been helping animals in Talbot County, Maryland, since 1932. For over 80 years our goals have been:
· To rescue animals from neglect;
· To place companion animals into loving homes;
· To reunite lost pets with their owners; and
· To reduce pet overpopulation through aggressive spay and neuter programs.
Talbot Humane’s compassionate staff and dedicated volunteers are making a difference every day by fulfilling the needs of our community. Our adoption program is highly successful, placing animals not only in new loving homes but by working with other organizations. Whether we are receiving animals from other humane organizations in need of help or a 501.c.3 rescue group is accepting one of our special need residents into their care, we continue toward our mission of placing every treatable, adoptable pet coming through our doors into a forever home.We continue to provide low cost spay/neuter services to county residents. Our Pet Pantry provides more than 3 tons of pet food annually to residents in need. Our educational programs ranging from pre-K to adult, offer information and lessons on everything from humane care to kindness to animals. Our volunteers can be found at community events every week sharing the good news about our work at Talbot Humane and showing our animals for adoption.Talbot Humane is contracted to provide Animal Control services to Talbot County MD 40 hours per week. As a nonprofit, 501 (c)(3) organization, we rely heavily on the support of our supporters, local businesses and friends so that we may continue fulfilling our mission to the animals of our community.
Our facility at 7894 Ocean Gateway in Easton, MD has expanded over the years to keep up with the needs of a growing animal population in the community. Talbot Humane is an open admission shelter to all Talbot County residents, caring for an average of 1,300 animals each year. This means we turn no animal away, no matter how full our cages, the medical condition or temperament of the animal in need.
