Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter showcased rescued dogs at Pet Valu on Saturday.
Wearing vests that read "ADOPT ME," a small group of rescued dogs greeted customers at the Pet Valu in Honeygo Village Center on Saturday afternoon. They were joined by volunteers and foster pet parents during one of Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter's Dog Adoption Days. Volunteer Melissa Trotman said she tries to organize adoption events at least once a month and has held several at Pet Valu. "They love it here," Trotman said. "Today we took them all for walks at Honeygo Run to get them some exercise before the event." Most of the dogs up for adoption are pit bull mixes, she said, adding that despite the breed's aggressive reputation, volunteers find them to be "sweet, gentle" and "great family dogs."

The proposed dog park quickly gained support among community members, county and state elected officials and the Perry Hall …

A local movement is gaining support on Facebook, and county and state officials are taking notice.
