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 Bishop, Goldie & Tuki:

Goldie (43416) An ACC Volunteer Writes: “Beautiful and young Goldie easily comes out of her shell. Spend some time with her and she will be all yours, smiling, wagging her tail, all happy to be paid attention to and played with. She is a pleasant walker, likely housetrained, sits nicely on command and takes treats very gently from the hand. I know that she plays exuberantly in playgroups with her peers, boys and girls, but when she is with people, she is all peaceful, gentle and loving. Goldie is really a "feel good" dog, sitting nicely by her caretaker's side, leaning tenderly against her and kissing profusely. She is the pet I would like to spend my life with and care for. Goldie is a true golden girl, pretty, friendly, affectionate but also very playful with her own kind.

Goldie even got to meet Tony, Emmy and Drama Desk award winner actress Bebe Neuwirth who recently visited the Manhattan shelter!

Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center and make her your forever best friend!” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110thStreet, New York.

Bishop (42750) An ACC volunteer writes: “The shelter was busy and raucous this evening, and this subtle and quiet boy decided (like many cats do) to ride it out by snoozing in his cubby. But as soon as the room emptied he was out front again seeking a bit of attention. I was greeted with a soft body rub and responded to him with those chin&cheek rubs and pets that kitties love so much. Bishop is never pushy; curious, he poked his head out the door to make sure the coast was clear but didn't venture out further even though he wanted to.(well behaved). Though he's on the quiet side he sure got excited when he discovered I had treats for him. Eagerly lapped them up. I'm told that Bishop lived with children, 2 and 5 yrs.old and used to sit in their laps. He was reported to be gentle and affectionate. I must tell you what I enjoyed most with him. There was a soft white light that shined on him when he got excited about the treats. Although, a small cat(7lbs) the light and his excitement made Bishop appear much larger and almost heavenly. A good fit for a person or persons , or a family who will reciprocate his affection and gentleness.” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street, New York.
