Henry the dog is more than man's best friend. He can be a lifeline for the 3 million Americans living with type 1 diabetes.

ROYAL OAK, Mich. -

Saturday at the Detroit Zoo hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will be up for adoption during Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo.

The Michigan Humane Society and more than 30 additional animal welfare organizations will take over the zoo in hopes of finding goods home for thousands of homeless animals.

The adoption event begins at 10 a.m. and run till 5:00 p.m. Saturday and is free to attend.

There is no charge for admission or parking for the adoption event. Regular admission and parking fees apply for those visiting the Zoo.

All dogs and cats will have received a medical check-up and age-appropriate vaccinations.

For health and safety reasons, please leave current companion animals at home. If you're interested in adopting a pet remember to bring your ID with you.
