The BARCS animal shelter in South Baltimore isn’t taking in any dogs at the moment due to a confirmed case of canine distemper.
Pepper here, coming to you from Baltimore Humane Society where I am looking for a family to call my own. The good news is I’m not just gorgeous, I have a personality to match! I’m a really fun, active girl who likes to run around and play. It’s very cute to watch me get my zoomies and go, go, go! I also love treats, I will do just about anything for some. I’m also very smart. I know a few commands like sit and down and would love to learn even more with whoever adopts me. I will be a very fun, faithful companion. If you think we’d be a good match, please come and meet me soon!
Feeling like a burrito or tacos for lunch today? The animals will thank you.
After a monthlong fight, staff at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore bid goodbye to Julius this weekend.
Your worst zoo-related nightmare shouldn’t be an escaped jungle cat or poisonous snake sneaking up on you. It’s a rabid groundhog stalking you and others around the premises.
Month-old giraffe calf Julius is still in critical condition, but at least he’s eating again. That development was enough to convince zoo staff to put off a planned “major procedure” for the giraffe that was set to take place yesterday.
Things are looking up for the Maryland Zoo’s 10-day-old giraffe calf, and not just because he now has his own moniker.
It’s been a busy start to the summer for Druid Hill Park’s zoo, particularly for staff in the so-called African Journey exhibits.
Despite getting off to a rough start, Maryland Zoo officials are feeling optimistic about their giraffe calf’s future, thanks in no small part to a fresh infusion of antibody-rich plasma from an adult giraffe in Ohio.
