Last year’s Livingston Pet Expo resulted in 10 pet adoptions and raised more than $14,500 for the Livingston Animal Shelter.

This family-friendly event once again will offer something for pets and people alike. Caricaturist Neil McMillin of Neillustrations will be on hand to capture one-of-a-kind memories of attendees’ four-legged friends. Cost (per pet) is $15 for a color picture, $10 for black and white.

Additionally, food and beverages will be available for purchase, provided by UNICO, and there will be vendors, live music by local student band “The Untitled,” and demonstrations from the Seeing Eye Puppy Club of Essex County and the Livingston Robotics Club.

Friends of the Livingston Animal Shelter is seeking additional businesses and non-profit and community groups to participate as vendors. The cost is $50 per table, which will benefit the Expo’s participating rescue groups.

For more information or to inquire about becoming a vendor, email, call (973) 885-9796, or follow The Shoppes at the Livingston Circle on Facebook.
