Animal Shelter

About Us

Royal Oak Animal Shelter is open by appointment to reunite families with their lost animals, to arrange meetings and pick-ups for approved fosters and adopters, and to accept donations. Staff and volunteers are in the building daily, as always, caring for the animals.

If you’ve found a stray dog/dog at large, witnessed animal neglect, cruelty, abandonment, or have other animal complaints, please call Animal Control at 248.824.5952 or ROPD non-emergency at 249.246.3500.  For assistance with non-companion animals, birds, and wildlife, please visit www2.dnr.state.mi.us/dlr/.

If your animal is missing, please post on PawBoost and email the link to us at roas@romi.gov.  We will share your post on our Facebook page and contact you directly if we intake or receive information about your animal.  

To view animals available for adoption, please visit the ROAS AdoptAPet page and follow the link on each animal’s individual page.  To request Foster, Adoption, or Volunteer applications, or to make an appointment to drop off donations or schedule a meet and greet with one of our adoptable animals, please email roas@romi.gov and we will be happy to assist you. 

Please note:  ROAS is not accepting surrenders.  Please email roas@romi.gov for suggestions on who might be able to assist with rehoming or for any other questions.
