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 Butterfly, Diana and Hamlet:

Butterfly (39061) Butterfly is a friendly and outgoing cutie, approximately four years old, who loves treats. And how can you resist those adorable ears? Available at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029.

Hamlet (38813) Have you been contemplating whether to adopt or not to adopt? Meet Hamlet-- a handsome, affectionate, somewhat chatty cat--and you’ll have your answer. You’ll definitely want to take this princely feline home. Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd., Brooklyn, NY 11208.

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.

Diana (35503) A volunteer writes that this “total love sponge…hunkers right down for petting as soon as you approach her. She especially loves to be petted when she's comfortably nestled in her litter box, and she loves nose rubs more than anything -- she'll eagerly stick her nose into the air to ask for more. If you stop petting her, she'll pop up like a jack-in-the-box!” Available at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029.

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.

You can also meet your new best friend at ACC’s Mobile Adoption Center, which travels throughout the city. (Note: dates and locations are subject to change. Information will be updated as quickly as possible.  View an Interactive adoption event at http://nycacc.org/adoptionevents.)
