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 Buttermush, Jonah and Lilly:

Buttermush (41203) An ACC volunteer writes: “With a name like Buttermush you might expect this guy to be some sort of magical creature and not just a dog...and you'd be right! He was initially a bit reserved with me but has since revealed his goofy, completely charming, and quietly affectionate ways. He jumps up like a kid on a trampoline for toys, topples over for belly rubs, and wiggles his tail as he makes his way to me. He maintains a very calm and stately presence in his kennel (I've never heard a peep out of him), has been consistently very easy to handle (a gentleman on leash, even when we've encountered exciting things like community cats), seems housebroken, knows "sit" and "paw" (but might have a discerning palate when it comes to treats), and seems fine with other dogs. He has a wonderful smile and just seems like SUCH a good dog...please come meet him for yourself at Brooklyn ACC!” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Boulevard, Brooklyn. 

Jonah (41425) An ACC volunteer writes: “A picture paints a thousand words and this Picasso-esque cutie's photo says it all. Jonah is a friendly, happy kitty who enjoys kitty snacks and attention from passing humans. He is fond of head butts and would love to share some with you. He is calmly awaiting your arrival at the Brooklyn care center.” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Boulevard, Brooklyn. 

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.

Lilly (39353) An ACC volunteer writes: “Lilly, despite her name, is an all-black bunny. This girl's most amazing physical quality is her super thick, soft, satiny coat. Petting Lilly feels like kneading bread dough. You won't want to stop massaging that deep, luscious fur pile ... which is convenient for Lilly, because she adores affection! She's super sweet, easy to approach, and will be content to just hang out with you for hours. Lilly would make a good bunny for a first-timer, and would probably also make a good partner for another rabbit.” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street, New York.

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.)
