Livingston's Animal Shelter, the headquarters of Animal Control, is under the auspices of the Police Department. The…More clean, spacious shelter is also a station for the stray and abandoned pets rescued by the township's Animal Control Officer, Jimmy Salvadore. Residents may call or visit the shelter to find their missing cats and dogs or to adopt pets whose owners have not come forward.
Residents may also report incidents of cruelty against animals to Animal Control. In addition to being a licensed Animal Control officer, Salvadore is a certified animal cruelty investigator who, given adequate evidence, will take concrete action against offenders.
Animal Control also deals with animals that may endanger human residents, such as squirrels living in an attic, dead deer on a roadside or dog bite incidents.
Salvadore manages to find homes for the animals that come to the shelter, with the special exception of Bubba the shelter cat, who is happy to stay.
