When adorable and fun-loving Romi (pronounced rō-mē) arrived at the Royal Oak Animal Shelter, a sharp-eyed volunteer noticed a 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 Appearances

Romi really enjoys being at events that promote safety, recycling, beautification, city parks and the Royal Oak Animal Shelter. Romi loves story time and is happiest when around kids. 

As a city ambassador, Romi is available to appear at no charge at city-sponsored board and committee events. 

Fill out an application to book Romi at your next event.
