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 Honey Bee, Leon and Snowball:

Honey Bee (# 78639)  A Volunteer Wrote: HER EARS!!!!!! Now that that's out of the way, may we add that this love bunny has arrived from a home who reports that Honey Bee's most favorite way to spend a day is playing fetch or Frisbee (she's apparently very good at it), ending her evenings curled up on the couch beside humans of all ages (apparently, she loves kids beyond.) Honey Bee is absolutely amazing on a leash, appears housetrained, and has us rooting for her with all of our hearts that she is back in a family willing to throw a ball and curl up with her ASAP. This is a dog used to, deserving of, and longing for, a home to call her own.

Leon (# 78067)  Volunteer writes Meet Leon: a soft, friendly cotton ball of feline love and goodness. When I met this super social young guy in the cat adoption room the other night, he was sitting patiently at the front of his cat condo and already purring with excitement as I made my way over to him. Immediately Leon sniffed my hand, then bowed for head rubs, and I happily obliged. Handsome, hearty, easygoing, and the antidote for all your stress and anxiety, Leon is ready for his forever family right now. Introduce yourself to this sweet boy today!

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.

Snowball (# 76302)  A volunteer writes: I cannot make up my mind which "best in class" category Snowball should win. 1. Fastest Heart Stealer; 2. Wildest Hopper; or 3. Friendliest Face. Snowball is a handsome bunny man with a big heart and even bigger eyes. He likes chinning, binkying, playing hide and seek, cilantro, timothy hay, tunnels, humans who play and cuddle with him on the floor, and plenty of space to dance and run. He dislikes being picked up, tiny cages, and his dinner being late for any reason. So don't let his handsomeness fool you - he certainly knows what he wants, but he wants it in the nicest and most adorable bunny-way. And now I have made up my mind: he should win all three categories. So hurry up and meet a triple champion in the bunny room at the Care Center in Brooklyn.

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.)
