April 28

10 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. 

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

ZooPaws is back for a second year after more than 56 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, outside 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.

  • Local boutique, boarding and pet wellness vendors
  • Food trucks
  • Special Zoo Atlanta incentives for all adoptive families

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.
