‘MEET YOUR BEST FRIEND AT THE DETROIT ZOO’ MAY 19 & 20

Michigan Humane Society’s Spring Off-Site Adoption Event is the Largest in the Country

In 1993, the Michigan Humane Society (MHS) and the Detroit Zoological Society partnered to create a unique adoption event called “Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo.” Now, 20 years later, nearly 20,000 animals have been adopted during Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo, which is today the largest off-site adoption event in the country. MHS and the Detroit Zoo will continue that tradition on Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak, Michigan. Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo is presented by Purina ONE.

“The hard work of so many wonderful animal welfare groups and key partners like the Detroit Zoo, Purina and PetSmart Charities, as well as the continued support of the community, is what makes this lifesaving effort possible and has made Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo the largest offsite adoption event in the country,” said Michael Robbins, vice president of Marketing and Communications at the Michigan Humane Society. “This year’s event is going to be even bigger and better, with more groups participating than ever before. If you’re looking for a furry best friend, Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo is the place to be!”

Hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from MHS and more than 20 animal welfare groups will be available for immediate adoption. In addition, 10 breed-specific rescue groups will be on-hand providing information to potential adopters about the breeds they represent – from Cocker Spaniels to Shih Tzus. (These groups will not have same-day adoptions.)

There is no charge for admission or parking for the event, which will be held under large tents in the front parking lot. The Detroit Zoo is at 8450 W. 10 Mile Road in Royal Oak.

Adoption fees and policies are set by each participating group and not by event sponsors. Animals will be adopted only to qualified homes. Adopters must present a driver’s license or state ID card. All dogs and cats will have received a medical check-up and age-appropriate vaccinations.  For health and safety reasons, please leave current companion animals at home. For more information, please call 1-866-MHUMANE (648-6263).
