Michigan Pet Adoption:‘MEET YOUR BEST FRIEND AT THE ZOO’ ON SEPT. 16 & 17


Event has placed more than 23,000 homeless animals into loving homes since 1993

 Thinking of adding a new furry friend to your family? The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) and the Detroit Zoological Society invite you to the fall 2016 Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo, where nearly 1,000 adoptable animals will be waiting to become someone’s BFF! The event, which will take place on Friday, Sept. 16 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., has found homes for more than 23,000 animals since it began in 1993. Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo is presented by Purina and sponsored by PetSmart Charities, Premier Pet Supply and Farmers Insurance.

With nearly 1,000 adoptable animals from around the state in one place, there is no better place to find a four-legged best friend than at Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo, said CJ Bentley, MHS Senior Director of Operations. “Whether you’re looking for a cuddle bug, an exercise buddy or a mix of both, you’re sure to find a wonderful companion.”

Dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from 35 animal welfare organizations including the Michigan Humane Society will be available for adoption. All dogs and cats will have received a medical check-up and age-appropriate vaccinations.


The Detroit Zoo is located at 8450 W. 10 Mile Road in Royal Oak. There is no charge for admission or parking for the event, which takes place under large tents in the front parking lot. The event does not include admission to 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 driver’s license or state ID card. For health and safety reasons, please leave current pets at home.


The Michigan Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the state. MHS works to end companion animal homelessness, provide the highest quality service and compassion to the animals entrusted to our care, and to be a leader in promoting humane values.

  9. This is a great idea. Our church holds a project called Noah's Ark every year where people from different sanctuaries come and speak and there are booths for different types of animals, we have the dove rescue group, the rabbits, the bee farmers and our local Animal Shelter comes in with dogs and kitties for adoption.
