Participating animal welfare and rescue organizations include:
This is the first pet adoption event of this magnitude in Minnesota, bringing together organizations and animals from across the state and surrounding areas. PEDIGREE® has sponsored the Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo event for more than 18 years in 20 cities helping place more than 16,000 animals in new, loving families. PEDIGREE® approached the Como Park Zoo and MnPAW to sponsor this event—these two organizations broadened the event to include animal welfare organizations throughout Minnesota who are dedicated to helping animals.
Adoption fees and policies are set by each participating group and not by event sponsors. All dogs and cats will have received a medical check-up and age-appropriate vaccinations. For health and safety reasons, please leave your current pets at home. MnPAW is a coalition of animal welfare organizations throughout Minnesota who are committed to working together to aid animals.
