When adorable and fun-loving Romi (pronounced rō-mē) arrived at the Royal Oak Animal Shelter, a sharp-eyed volunteer noticed his striking resemblance to a map of Royal Oak and the rest is history.
The four-legged cutie was quickly adopted by city employees and is now the official mascot of Royal Oak.
Romi loves our walkable community and its many parks, parades and events. We can’t wait for you to meet Royal Oak’s new best friend!
Romi really enjoys being at events that promote safety, recycling, beautification, city parks and the Royal Oak Animal Shelter. He loves to have stories read to him and is happiest when he is around kids.
As a city ambassador, Romi is available to appear at no charge at city-sponsored board and committee events.
