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.

Plus, ACC is launching a specific '60 Cats -- 60 Days' appeal for foster homes for cats.  Due to an influx of cats and kittens during these warm summer months, they're seeking foster homes for adult cats to make space in the shelter.  They're asking for a two month committment. Potential fosters should fill out a questionaire HERE and then email it to foster@nycacc.org.

This week, 3 To See is featuring Elderberry, Finley and Rigatoni Alfredo:

Rigatoni Alfredo (31069) An ACC Volunteer writes: “Rigatoni is a real sweetheart. She loves affection, wants to sit in your lap and enjoys "grooming" her person. She is curious, friendly, calm and easy-going; not a nervous type at all. After an initial adjustment she is very good about not waking people up early in the morning and respecting boundaries. On top of all those fine features, she is a beautiful creature. Rigatoni is an amazing companion, so if you're interested in making her your friend, please come and adopt her today!” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029.

Finley (36897) “A volunteer writes: You could be mistaken for thinking we're running a doggie modeling agency at the Care Center with an elegant gent like Finley strolling around! His sculpted cheekbones and soulful eyes alone are the stuff of envious daydreams, but this good boy is so much more than just a pretty face. He's also a fine walker, seemingly very house trained and no guarder of toys, and he won our staff over on the spot with his wonderfully social manners in playgroup. A real 'dog's dog' who'd rather be outdoors living life to the full than inside lazing on a couch, Finley's the perfect teammate, running and leaping enthusiastically round the yard with any new pup who cares to join in the game. He'll even tailor his energy levels and play style to their own, 'helicopter tail' wagging joyfully all the while. Playful, curious and well-mannered, Finley is the full pet package, and if you're looking for a fun new addition to your four-legged family, the search ends here. Meet him at our Manhattan Care Center and bring the whole crew!” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029.

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.

Elderberry (35784) A volunteer writes: “Elderberry is a medium-sized Silver Marten girl with a very mellow demeanor. This lovely bunny was abandoned along with four other female rabbits, presumably relatives of some kind. She's the calmest of the bunch -- she loves to just hang out and be petted. Elderberry is a gorgeous yet unusual example of the Silver Marten breed; most Silver Martens are much darker, but her coat is a yummy shade of brown. Elderberry's easy-going personality would make her a good choice for a first-time bunny owner and would probably also make her a good partner for another bunny.” 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.
