Pet Adoption – Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo Presented by Purina

September 14, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - September 15, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo

Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo, presented by Purina, is one of the nation’s largest off-site pet adoption events. The Detroit Zoo hosts this semi-annual event in partnership with the Michigan Humane Society. Since the event’s inception in 1993, nearly 25,000 dogs, cats and rabbits have been placed into new homes at the spring and fall events.

Meet Your Best Friend is free to the public and will take place in the small parking lot beneath the Zoo’s landmark water tower. Over 30 rescues from across Michigan will join MHS to help find animals their furever homes.

Friendly reminders:

  • Adoption fees and policies vary by participating groups.
  • For health and safety reasons, please leave current companion animals at home.
  • Strollers are not allowed in the tents. Upon entering the event you will be asked to park your stroller before entering the tents.
