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 Bingum, Chubsita and Poppy:

Bingum (58305) An ACC Volunteer Writes: "Don't let this pooch's grey muzzle fool you, she plays like a dog half her age. But if you need to get some work done, she can settle down easily by your side and quietly keep you company. She's also very friendly and affectionate. Basically, she's the perfect friend! Come visit Bingham at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center today!” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.   

Chubsita (61349) An ACC Volunteer writes: "Lively, perky affectionate, Chubsita hails from a house with many, many felines. She is now quickly learning to get a lot of attention from humans. At first reticent and safely tucked in a corner, Chubista readily emerged for a smile, a friendly hello and for some treats. When I tried to pet her she got very lively and a bit skittish so I opted to leave well enough alone. I was mistaken. I was soon treated, or rather, besieged with a chorus of meows that wouldn't stop. Her calls were only quelled as I returned and showered her with gentle pets, soft talk and TLC. Chubsita nuzzled me in return to show how grateful she was for the attention and transformed into a calm, loveable and cute cherub. This kitty is apparently loving close contact with humans. I'm sure she will be a good & fine pet for a person(s) with an understanding of feline behavior. And this kitty would be delighted to have another or other kitties for company and play." 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.

Poppy (61752) Meet Poppy, the 6lb mini lop! Poppy loves people and is looking for a new home to bounce all around in! Stop by Brooklyn ACC and meet this lovely lady today! Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.
