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:

Apple Jax (59280) An ACC Volunteer Writes: "3-year-old Apple Jax loves to play, both with humans and other dogs. Loose and wiggly, his wagging tail telegraphs to everyone around him what us a friendly boy he is. He loves toys and knows how to play nicely with them. He'll come when you call. He'll bounce all around for some loving attention, and will lean warmly into your lap to accept your pets!” Available for adoption at Brooklyn ACC: 2336 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn.

Buddy (57149) Buddy is an 8-year-old, gentle marshmallow boy. He’s super calm, mellow, and is looking for someone to give him those oh-so-sought-after neck scratches.  Available for adoption at Manhattan ACC: 326 E 110th Street, Manhattan.

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.

Jinx (45656) An ACC Volunteer writes: Jinx is awfully cute! She's mostly white with soft grayish-brown freckles on her cheeks and down her back, a fun stripe across her forehead, and giant dark eyes. Currently in ACC foster home.

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 ID number, 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.)
