Before @barcsanimal_shelter took over #Baltimore's animal shelter in 2005, 98 percent of animals were euthanized as soon as they arrived. Now 89 percent are adopted, rescued or returned to their owners. Receiving an average of 30 animals a day, it's the largest open-admission animal shelter in #Maryland.

Baltimore's tradition of horse-drawn vending dates back to the 19th century. Today, only three arabber stables remain, on Bruce Street, Carlton Street and Fremont Avenue. Robert Sullivan organized a block party Saturday in Butchers Hill to raise funds -- and support -- for arabbers. Many of the arabbers’ customers are people who depend on them for fresh food, such as elderly residents who can’t get out to the store. “The city has basically a history of trying to put them out of business,” he said. “So we want to try to turn that around.” Pictured, Demi Solomon, 6, rides Patrick, a miniature Shetland pony guided by arabber David Johns.

While looking for signs of spring, @jphotoj found this adorable pair of fox kits this morning in the Guilford neighborhood.

Over a decade ago, Mark Angelo Askew bought a small mechanical blowing machine to satisfy his childhood fascination with soap bubbles. Little did he know that bubble blowing would become his retirement project. On Thursday, Mark and his wife, Brenda Marie, brought their bubbles to the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Fifty years ago today, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was killed by an assassin’s bullet in Memphis at age 39. Less than four years prior, shortly after he was named recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, King came to Baltimore, the sixth city he visited in his drive to convince African-Americans to vote in the 1964 presidential election. King was also in Baltimore in April 1966, for a talk at the Civic Center on "Vital Issues Facing the Church."

Students from Great Mills High School were up before sunrise preparing for the #MarchforOurLives in D.C. Saturday. Less than a week ago, a few minutes before classes began, a 17-year-old fired his father’s gun in a first-floor hallway.
Two students, including the shooter, were fatally wounded. Another boy was injured. Members of the close-knit community in southern Maryland say the school shooting changed them.
