Valkyrie Valentino's Story...
Hello, my name is Valkyrie Valentino! Don't mind the tail. It's in the "always wagging" position when I'm awake. Can't help it, I am just a happy boy when people are around. I get along well with other dogs. I enjoy taking walks and being petted. I have a friendly personality, but a laid back demeanor. I am a docile, calm and mellow boy - just an absolute sweetheart. I am about 6 years old. I'm friendly, loving and kind. I love people and being with them. Companionship and attention are the best things in the world to me. I am housetrained and I get along well with other dogs. I'm smart and well-behaved too. I listen well and come when I'm called. I just want to please people and be happy. Please give me a home! I am a great dog who deserves only the best. Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance and microchip.

I live at the Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center at 1700 Brown Rd in Auburn Hills. You can visit me there any time the shelter is open. The shelter will not put me up for adoption because of my appearance, so my only way out of the shelter alive is through a rescue.

TO ADOPT: if you have a fenced yard, call Shannon with MPEP at 586-530-7511.

Or, fenced yard or not, apply online: Complete the adoption/foster application and a volunteer will contact you to answer questions and to schedule a meet-n-greet.

VISIT: Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center, 1700 Brown Rd in Auburn Hills any time the shelter is open, Monday - Friday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. or Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.


Adoption Process:
Complete the application at We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Troy breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Boxer/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
