Animal Shelter

The Royal Oak Animal Shelter is operated as a City service under management of the Royal Oak Police Department. Our goals are to provide a safe haven for lost animals or animals given up by their owners; to reunite lost animals with their human companions, and to provide the best possible adoptions of available animals into the home best suited to their personalities. 

Address: 1515 N. Edgeworth, Royal Oak, MI 48067

Bring Your New BFF Home for the Holidays this December


For the month of December, the Royal Oak Animal Shelter is offering DISCOUNTED adoption fees to help increase the chances of its cats and dogs finding a home just in time for the holidays! 

Dogs fees are $100; cats are just $50. 

All animals are all fully vetted (vaccines, spayed/neutered, etc.) If you are looking to add a new member to the family this holiday season, please come by and meet all of the wonderful cats and dogs at the Royal Oak Animal Shelter

Wonderful snuggle buddies, such as Phoenix (shown in the photo above) are looking for a home. Phoenix is about 5 years old, very loving and mellow, but has to be the only pet. He was heartworm positive when he came to the shelter but has finished his treatment, has had his vaccines, and will be neutered next week! 

Can we find Phoenix a home for holidays, Royal Oak?

Featured Pet of the Week



Meet Cookie. She was a stray and arrived at the Royal Oak Animal Shelter on December 26th, 2013! She's about 2 1/2 years old and is great with both kids and people in general. She is extremely playful and absolutely loves attention. She responds to several commands which means she's been someone's pet in the past. She would also like to be in a home without other pets.

Cookie has been neutered, and all of her shots are current so she's ready to go to her new forever home. 

For information about adopting Cookie, visit the Royal Oak Animal Shelter at 1515 Edgeworth or phone the shelter at: 248-246-3364.
