April 27

10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Meet your new best friend … right outside the Zoo! Join Zoo Atlanta and the Atlanta Humane Society for our annual pet adoption event.

ZooPaws is back for a THIRD year after more than 60 dogs found forever homes last season! Come out for a day of fun, kid-friendly activities and a chance to find that perfect addition to your family.

This free event will be held in Grant Park, just steps from the Zoo’s front gates. The Atlanta Humane Society and other local animal adoption agencies will be on-site with lots of loveable puppies and dogs just waiting to go home with you.

Friendly reminders:

  • Adoption fees and policies will be stipulated by the Atlanta Humane Society and each participating adoption agency.
  • For health and safety reasons, please leave your current pets at home.
  • Strollers are not allowed in the adoption area. Please park your stroller in the designated area before entering.

This event is rain-or-shine.
