These canine champions will capture your heart!

The Zoo is excited to present Canine Champions for Conservation! This new guest experience is a fun, high-energy show starring dogs rescued from shelters to raise awareness and support for conservation efforts. Shows run Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend and are free with entry to the North Carolina Zoo! 

You'll love watching these "Champs" soar, spin, jump, and fly in each and every show. The show is located in Africa between the Junction and Gorilla habitat.
