The Detroit Zoo and Michigan Humane Society, in collaboration with more than 40 local animal welfare organizations, will host the spring 2016 Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo May 13-14. Hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will be available for immediate adoption to loving homes at one of the nation’s largest off-site companion animal adoption events.

Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo will be held from 1 to 7 p.m. May 13 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 14 outdoors under tents in the zoo’s front parking lot beneath the landmark water tower. There is no charge for admission or parking for the adoption event; regular admission and parking fees apply for those visiting the zoo.

Adoption fees and policies are set by each participating group. Adopters must present a valid driver’s license or state ID card. All animals will have received a medical checkup and age-appropriate vaccinations. A get-acquainted area will be available to provide guests an opportunity to spend time with an animal before adopting. For health and safety reasons, all current companion animals should be left at home.

Since the inception of Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo in 1993, more than 21,000 dogs, cats, and rabbits have been placed into new homes at the spring and fall events.
