Animal Control


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.


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


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. Items can be dropped off at the shelter, 81 Naylon Avenue, Monday through Friday, between 10 am - 12 pm.

Monetary donations can be made to Friends of the Livingston Animal Shelter, (FOLAS) P.O. Box 105, Livingston, NJ 07039.

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 

It is tempting to feed feral cats because they are cute and look like domestic cats, but they are not domesticated and may carry diseases. Feeding feral cats disrupts their natural feeding habits and can result in wildlife being concentrated at artificial feeding areas.

Please complete and submit this online form to report a feral colony of cats.

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.
