Since 1993, the Michigan Humane Society has teamed up with the Detroit Zoo to play matchmaker with thousands of adoptable pets and their future besties. This semi-annual event, Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo, has paired more than 25,000 dogs, cats, and rabbits with their humans. This year, more than 40 local animal welfare groups will be set up beneath a tented area in the zoo’s parking lot with a separate “get-acquainted” area to allow folks to bond with their potential new family member.

Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo Adoption Event runs from noon-6 p.m. on Friday, May 18 and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday, May 19; 8450 W. 10 Mile Rd., Royal Oak; 248-541-5717;; Event is free to attend, adoption fees apply.
