CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo invited visitors to adopt a new pet at the annual "Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo" animal adoption event.
More than 20 animal adoption agencies, rescue groups and charities participated in the drive with more than 100 cats and dogs ready for a new home. All animals also received a medical check-up and up-to-date vaccinations prior to adoption.
So far, more than 700 animals have been adopted through the "Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo" event since 2001. The event is one of the largest animal adoption drives in northeast Ohio.
