ROYAL OAK, Mich. - An animal adoption event is to be held at the Detroit Zoo.
The zoo and the Michigan Humane Society are hosting the 20th annual spring "Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo" event on Sunday.
Hundreds of dogs and cats are to be available for immediate adoption. The Detroit Zoo calls it the nation's largest off-site companion animal adoption event.
"Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo" is to be held outdoors under tents in the zoo's front parking lot beneath the water tower.
Last year, the spring "Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo" event found homes for 449 animals.
Since its inception in 1993, more than 17,000 dogs, cats and rabbits have been placed in new homes at the spring and fall events.
