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 NYC #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 Isabella, Oliver and Bunz!

Isabella (15144) An ACC Volunteer Writes: “Puppy Isabella is looking for action! She's lively, loves to play, loves to run, loves to cuddle in her exuberant way, and is an all-around good time girl! Isabella pulls hard on the leash, but doesn't forget to go potty once outside, and wags her tail as we go. It's off leash in the yard where her lively personality shines as she runs after toys, plays tug with me and is an awesome competitor (don't tell her I let her win), and just enjoys the fun of it all. Isabella is young and could use a little training in the manners department, and because she loves treats (sitting for them and taking them gently), she'll learn what she needs to with positive reinforcement training (aka lots of treats). Her coat gleams, her weight is perfect for her size, and she has amazing white teeth which she shows off with her beautiful smile. Isabella is looking for an active family, couch potatoes need not apply, which doesn't mean she doesn't appreciate a good cuddle or two or three. Isabella is ready to meet you, are you ready for her?” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029. Learn more about Isabella HERE.

Oliver (23266) Meet Oliver, the delicious orange-creamsicle-cat who has heads turning at ACC! This beautiful boroughbred is affectionate, curious, outgoing, social, and looking for his new forever home. Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Boulevard, Brooklyn NY 11208. Learn more about Oliver HERE.

You can view available animals online, and at the Care Centers, ACC Adoption Counselors will help you find the best match.

Bunz (23088) An ACC Volunteer Writes: “Bunz is a medium-sized black and white Dutch female. This girl has perfect Dutch looks and a perfect Dutch temperament! She's very friendly and well-socialized, and sits still politely while you pet her, tooth purring gently. Bunz's diminutive head fits conveniently into the palm of a human hand, and she conveniently adores all-over head rubs. Her coat is a combination of jet black and bright white, like a checkerboard. She's make a good choice for a first-time bunny owner.” Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 East 110th Street (between 1st and 2nd Aves.) New York, NY 10029. Learn more about Bunz HERE.
