Meet Your Best Friend At The Detroit Zoo!!

Saturday & Sunday
September 24th and 25th
from 10am to 5pm at:
The Detroit Zoo

The Michigan Humane Society and the Detroit Zoological Society will host the fall Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, September 24, and Sunday, September 25, at the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak. Hundreds of adoptable dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will be available for immediate adoption from MHS and more than 20 additional organizations at the largest off-site pet adoption event in the country.

There is no charge for admission or parking for this event, which is held in the Detroit Zoo front parking lot.
Last year, the spring Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo event found homes for 498 animals. Since its inception in 1993, the event has helped more than 17,000 animals find new, loving families.

Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo

Adoption policies and fees are set by each participating group and not by event sponsors. Adopters must present a driver’s license or state ID card. All dogs and cats will have received a medical checkup and age-appropriate vaccinations. For health and safety reasons, please leave current pets at home. 

Our thanks to the corporate sponsors who help make this event possible and for the community’s support in adopting nearly 17,000 pets – that is, furry best friends – at the event since 1993.

The event will be held under tents in the Detroit Zoo front parking lot, beneath the signature water tower, located at 8450 W. 10 Mile Road in Royal Oak.

    Just wanted to say thanks for stopping by, Caren. I don't know how much his not smoking is affecting his meds, if at all. He's been in this slow downward spiral for some time now, before he gave up the cigarettes.

    He seemed indifferent about the notice letter. I am going to attempt talking with him about it tomorrow. And again, thank you. :-) And Bazinga says 'hello' to Cody!
