NEW YORK (1010WINS) 1010 WINS has teamed up with Animal Care Centers of New York City to let you know about some of the adoptable #Boroughbreds looking for loving homes in the city's shelters, and, where ACC's mobile adoption units are headed with even more great pets.

This week, we're featuring Achilles, Chris and Snoopy:

Achilles (54768) An ACC volunteer writes: ”Achilles is an angel with a crooked face. He is always quiet in his cage and makes lovey dovey eye contact with anyone that passes (and it's sincere each and every time!). He has been a gentleman on leash, seems housebroken, and is an expert at "sit" and "paw" (and given his love for treats I think he could become an expert at many other things too!). He may have hit the double digits but he lights up like a puppy when offered toys and couldn't be cuter as he parades around with them. His former owner describes him as a low energy guy that belongs in a family and I couldn't agree more! He radiates love and goodness and can't possibly be done justice in words... please come meet him at Brooklyn ACC and see how special he is!⠀” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.  

Chris (56735) An ACC volunteer writes: “How sweet of a cat is Chris? When I approached him the other day for a meet and greet, he immediately came to the front of his cat condo and rubbed his nose gently through the window, almost like he was giving me an Eskimo kiss. This panda boy comes to us from a home; his former person told us he's a medium-energy cat who could be shy with strangers and tolerated (but didn't play with) the dog in the household. The Care Center behavior team found him to be a head-butting furball who leaned in for pettings. I loved every minute I got to spend with Chris, who seems thrilled to hang with humans and show off his calm, laid-back demeanor. If you're looking for a cat who gravitates toward people and will adopt you rather than the other way around, then you must meet Chris today!" Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 E 110th Street, Manhattan.   

Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is the only open-admissions animal shelter in New York City and takes in approximately 30,000 animals every year. ACC’s  three Care Centers in Manhattan (326 East 110th Street), Brooklyn (2336 Linden Boulevard), and Staten Island (3139 Veterans Road West) are open for adoptions 12pm-8pm Monday thru Friday, and 10am-6pm Saturdays and Sundays.

Snoopy (57052) An ACC Volunteer writes: "Our Snoopy is the most adorable little puppy girl in a bunny outfit! What a gem of a bunn she is. Friendly, energetic, and just wanting to love and be loved. Snoopy is excited about every visitor in the bunny room, running up to the front of her cage to greet and kiss (and hopefully be kissed). Out in the playpen, she is a happy binkier and true friend who will come up for nose bumps and massages. She is excited and grateful for toys, greens, her large amounts of fresh hay and you know what? Your company. Because, happiness is a warm bunny and a warm human. Come meet super friendly Snoopy in the bunny room in Brooklyn!"  Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.   

If you’re interested in one of the animals featured here, email ACC’s Adoption team at adopt@nycacc.org with the animal’s name and "A#", or head directly to the Care Center where the animal is located. Please note, animals featured here may already be placed by the time you arrive, but there are hundreds of great cats, dogs, and rabbits looking for loving homes every day! You can view available animals online, and at the Care Centers, ACC Adoption Counselors will help you find the best match.
