Adoption: Occasionally, animals are available for adoption. If you are interested in adoption, please call Livingston Animal Control or look at our Petfinder Page.

Donations: The Livingston Animal Shelter is always happy to accept donations of pet items such as carriers, leashes, collars, beds, bleach, paper towels, cat/dog toys, treats, cat/dog food or any other items.

Foster/Volunteer Opportunities: Foster homes for kittens without mothers are sometimes needed because the kittens must be bottle fed.  Contact Livingston Animal Control if you are interested in volunteering.

Found Animals Currently at Our Shelter: If your pet has been lost, call Livingston Animal Control. We can tell you if we’ve already picked up your pet, or we can be on the lookout for your pet.

Report a Feral Colony of Cats: Please complete this form (PDF) to report a feral colony. Follow the instructions on the form to submit it.

Stray Animals: If you have found a stray dog or cat, do not approach or try to capture it yourself; call Livingston Animal Control.

The Township of Livingston has a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program to help manage the feral cat habitats in town. Read more here.  

We are in the process of renovating our Animal Shelter facility. The new facility will be up to all codes, with a separate isolation room.

The Livingston Animal Shelter is a no-kill shelter.

Livingston’s Animal Control Officer is James Salvadore.
