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 animals 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 3 To See At ACC: Meet Ferdinand, Leia & Reuben!

Ferdinand (25995) Meet Ferdinand. This absolutely stunning boroughbred was found as a stray by the NYPD. We don't know anything about his past, but we do know that any family that takes Ferdinand in will be the luckiest family in NYC. He has it all. The stunning looks, the perfect behavior, the easy-going attitude that lets him mesh with other animals... stop by Brooklyn ACC and adopt this sweetheart today! Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Boulevard, Brooklyn NY 11208.

Leia (25911) Leia is a beautiful Brooklyn boroughbred looking for her new home. She is friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, and quiet with a medium activity level.  Stop by Brooklyn ACC and adopt your new best buddy today!  Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Boulevard, 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.

Reuben (21328) An ACC volunteer writes: “Reuben is an extra-large New Zealand White with great big ears. This guy is oodles of bun to love, but he's not for the faint of heart! Reuben is a very energetic and strong boy. He gets very excited at the prospect of "out time," and will practically burst out of his cage to achieve his goal. Once he's free, he's much happier and easier to handle - and if he's in the mood, he'll even settle down for some affection. Reuben will need a lot of space in his habitat and a ton of time out for exercise.” Available for adoption 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.)
