Meet Your Best Friend

Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo is one of the nation’s largest off-site pet adoption events. The Detroit Zoo hosts this semiannual event in partnership with the Michigan Humane Society. Since the event’s inception in 1993, more than 23,000 dogs, cats and rabbits have been placed into new homes at the spring and fall events.

Meet Your Best Friend is a free event and takes place in the parking lot beneath the Zoo’s landmark water tower.

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.

Friday, May 19, 1 to 7 p.m., and Saturday, May 20, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
