Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo!The Michigan Humane Society and the Detroit Zoological Society will host our annual Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo adoption event, presented by Purina, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, at the Detroit Zoo.

Hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will be available for adoption from 40 animal welfare organizations, including the Michigan Humane Society.

There is no charge for admission or parking for the adoption event. Regular admission and parking fees apply for those visiting the Zoo.

Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo!Adoption fees and policies are set by each participating group and not by event hosts or sponsors. Animals will be adopted only to qualified homes.

Adopters must present a valid driver’s license or state ID card. All dogs and cats will have received a medical check-up and age-appropriate vaccinations.

Strollers are not allowed in the tents. Upon entering the event, please see the designated stroller parking area. For health and safety reasons, please leave current companion animals at home. 

Our thanks to the sponsors who help make this event possible and for the community’s support in adopting nearly 21,000 pets – that is, furry best friends – at the event since 1993!
